Cambiemos presidential candidate Mauricio Macri voted in Wenceslao Posse School in Palermo at 11:15 AM, accompanied by his wife Juliana Awada.
Surrounded by hordes of journalists and enthusiastic voters, Macri said that, “I feel an enormous amount of joy, it’s a historic day. A new era begins tomorrow in Argentina, no matter what happens, we’re all in this together.”
When asked how his day would continue, he said that, “I’m going to play football and then eat with my children and some friends. At 8:00 PM, I’ll go to the bunker [campaign headquarter].”
As is tradition, he brought facturas (pastries) for the fiscales (people sent by political parties to represent their interests and make sure there is no shady business during the electoral day), who arrive before the voting begins and leave hours after the last vote has been cast. Macri also shared them with the journalists, a group of such density that he found it a little difficult to make a statement and soon left the school with one of his own facturas in hand.
