Argentina's Peronists post shock election win to seal run-off with libertarian Milei

Argentina's ruling Peronist coalition exceeded expectations in the general election, with Economy Minister Sergio Massa leading the race and far-right libertarian radical Javier Milei in second place. Conservative Patricia Bullrich trailed behind. The strong performance of the Peronists, despite the country's economic crisis and rising anger, sets up a polarized run-off vote next month. The outcome leaves Argentina's future uncertain, with no clear path forward for the country's struggling economy.
