Ultraliberal populist Milei wins Argentine elections

The ultra-liberal, populist outsider Javier Milei will become the new president of Argentina from December 10. His opponent Sergio Massa, the current Minister of Economy, acknowledged his defeat in the second round of the presidential elections on Sunday evening. “A majority of Argentinians voted for him,” Massa said before the first results were announced. Milei wants to solve Argentina’s serious economic problems with radical ideas. The country is suffering from sky-high inflation and growing poverty.
