Javier Milei was elected as Argentina’s new president on Sunday after Economy Minister Sergio Massa conceded defeat. Because the voting is conducted by paper ballots, the timing of the final result is unpredictable. The 53-year-old, touted as the Donald Trump of Argentina, has been vocal about his admiration of the former US President. He is also an economist and an author.
Milei had made unconventional proposals like making the US dollar the official currency of Argentina in order to end the triple-digit inflation in the country.
The president elect accused his opponent Massa of running a ‘campaign of fear’. “We did a great job despite the fear campaign and all the dirty tactics they used against us,” he told journalists after he voted.
