Who won the 2019 Argentine general election?
Alberto Ángel Fernández (born 2 April 1959) is an Argentine lawyer and politician who is the President-elect of Argentina after winning the 2019 general election. He was the Chief of the Cabinet of Ministers during the entirety of Néstor Kirchner's presidency, and the early months of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's. His tenure as Cabinet Chief from 2003 to 2008 remains the longest since the post was created in 1994.
On May 18, 2019, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced that Fernández would be a candidate for president, and that she would run for vice president alongside him, hosting his first campaign rally with Santa Cruz Governor Alicia Kirchner, sister-in-law of the former Kirchner.
In the October 27th general election, Fernández won the presidency by attaining 48.1% of the vote to Macri's 40.4%, exceeding the threshold required to win without the need for a ballotage, making him the first challenger to unseat an incumbent president in Argentine history.
