Victory Front (FpV) vice presidential candidate Carlos Zannini voted this morning in Río Gallegos.

“It’s a close race, but the people will not destroy what this government has built,” he told press.

“The people will want to keep moving forward, strengthening the change and building on what helps each of us. The Argentine people should be happy and will defend what we have achieved. I am a man of dialogue and I have never said that I wouldn’t meet with Macri.”

He finished by saying that last night, he cooked lamb chops for President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

“We’re simple people who get together and eat asados,” he said.
