Argentina’s leading presidential candidate says the country deserves a leader like him and is dismissing claims that he won’t remain independent from outgoing President Cristina Fernández.
Daniel Scioli is the ruling party’s presidential candidate and Fernández’s chosen successor. He recently finished first in the open primaries, and will face a run-off election on Oct. 25.
If elected, Scioli says he would help bridge divisions and rule for all Argentines, not just his party. He also says he would respect the institutions as he has done in the past while serving as Argentina’s vice president and now as governor of Buenos Aires province.
