The current mayor, conservative Mauricio Macri, defeats Daniel Filmus Peronist, but fails the required 50% of the votes. Another second round, which the Mayor won both disputed in 2007. The Mayor of Buenos Aires, Mauricio Macri, leader of the conservative Republican proposal, should contest a runoff with Peronist Senator Daniel Filmus, to have been imposed to its rival, but without obtaining 50% of votes in the local elections held on Sunday in the Argentine capital. Macri won 46.7 percent of the vote, 18.5 percentage points higher than Filmus, candidate of the Peronist front for victory which leads the Argentine President, Cristina Fernandez, according to the official calculation of 85.1 per cent of polling stations. In third place was filmmaker Fernando Pino Solanas, of the Alliance of centre left project South. Macri and Filmus already contested a second round of voting, which the Conservative leader won in 2007. Twelve other candidates were far away, as a result of an electoral polarization that had as great losers to the Civic Coalition, formed by leaders of center-left and center-right (3.1% of the votes) and the social democratic Radical Civic Union (UCR), second parliamentary force (2.9%).
In these elections voted more than 75% of the 2.48 million enabled citizens, similar to the last three level contests held in the Argentine capital, the third constituency of the country. Celebration at nightfall in the Argentinian capital, the celebrations of the followers of Macri to pure music differed from the proselytizing atmosphere of the bunker of Filmus, who a hour later than its rival thanked those who allowed him to leave once again to dnder the project of the Government of Fernandez. Macri repeated the tone of discourse of his electoral victory of 2007, when it tried to become leader of the opposition to the Government which was in the hands of the deceased Nestor Kirchner (2003-2007), husband of Fernandez, who succeeded him by winning the presidential elections of October of that year. I always said that I would have second round because 50 plus one is a very challenging deadline and had many candidates. We are ready for the second round, we feel very good with this support from the residents of Buenos Aires, said the Mayor in his bunker, surrounded by hundreds of followers.
