Daniel Scioli secured 38 percent in the primaries against his closest rival, the Buenos Aires mayor Mauricio Macri.

After winning Sunday’s presidential primaries in Argentina, the ruling party candidate Daniel Scioli promised to continue progressive social programs if he wins the general election to be held on October 25, at a press conference Monday. With more than 90 percent of Sunday’s votes counted, Scioli leads the race with more than 38 percent of the vote cast, against his closest rival, the opponent Buenos Aires mayor Mauricio Macri who reached 22 percent in the ballots.

At the press conference the candidate of current President Cristina Fernandez's Front for Victory party said he is seeking to show all Argentinians who voted for him and also those who didn't, that he will continue a project of government that has taken the country in the right direction.

“This is a new chapter, Argentina is free of debt and the social programs are the backbone of our programs, we will continue showing the people that their confidence in us is being rewarded.” Scioli said and revealed that his current strategy includes also an ambitious international agenda.
