Argentina election ‘set to return Cristina Fernandez’

Argentines went to the polls on Sunday in elections that incumbent president Cristina Fernandez looks set to win, the BBC informs. Ms Fernandez won more than 50 percent of the vote in a primary in August, which observers say is a good indicator for Sunday’s final result. She has presided over strong economic growth and introduced popular social policies. The sudden death of her husband, former president Nestor Kirchner, a year ago brought her a wave of support. Her critics say she has also benefited from a weak and fragmented opposition in this election.
