Argentina's Presidential Front-runner Focuses on Economy

Wednesday, 16 October 2019 08:38 PM

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — The front-runner in Argentina's presidential race says his main concern is the country's economic woes, which he blames on his main opponent, conservative President Mauricio Macri.

Alberto Fernández on Wednesday also dismissed the worries of some Argentines that he would be unduly influenced by his running mate and former boss, ex-President Cristina Fernández, whose left-of-center administration's economic interventionist approach was criticized by some business sectors.

Anger over the economy has hurt Macri's re-election campaign for the Oct. 27 presidential vote. The Fernández slate has been considered the leader since receiving far more votes than Macri's in primary voting Aug. 11.
