The Triumph of Javier Milei: A New Era for Argentina
This week concludes without football matches or political debates. However, it marks a significant turning point for the nation as Javier Milei, the candidate for Libertad Avanza, emerged victorious in the presidential election, surpassing Sergio Massa of Union for the Fatherland.
“It’s true,” Milei declared triumphantly from his campaign headquarters before 9:00 p.m. “This is the beginning of Argentina’s reconstruction,” he affirmed, igniting a wave of joy among his supporters.
“I am immensely grateful to the team that has dedicated years of hard work to Argentina. Today, we have a liberal libertarian president. I want to express my gratitude to my wife Karina, whose unwavering support made this possible,” Milei added.
“I want to thank the giant who accompanied me throughout this journey, Santiago Caputo, the true architect of this victory, alongside our leader. Additionally, I want to extend my gratitude to all the members of Libertad Avanza who worked tirelessly towards this goal. I also acknowledge the tax authorities, my party, and the PRO for their support,” Milei affirmed.
“The era of decline has come to an end. We are turning away from the ideas that hindered our freedom, the ideas of Alberdi and our founding fathers who propelled us to be a global power within 35 years. We will respect liberty. The model of decadence has reached its conclusion, and there is no turning back,” Milei proclaimed passionately.

“The results of this model are evident to all. The majority of Argentinians live in poverty, with 10% facing extreme poverty. We are ready to abandon the shackles that hinder our freedom and strive to become a global power,” Milei emphasized.
“All those who come to the New Argentina will be welcomed. Within the bounds of the law, everything is permitted. Outside the law, nothing. In this new Argentina, there is no place for privileges. We will be relentless against those who resort to violence to defend their privileges,” the newly elected president declared.
“The Argentine decade has come to an end. It concludes with the omnipresent empire. There is no room for gradualism,” Milei firmly stated.
“Argentina will reclaim its rightful place in the world, a position it should have never lost. Our commitment is to democracy, free trade, and peace. Let us collaborate with all free nations to build a better world. It is time to bid farewell to outdated political ideologies and embrace new knowledge,” Milei declared in his inspiring speech.
“Argentina has a future, but that future can only be realized through liberalism,” echoes one of the country’s popular phrases.
“We have embraced the ideas of freedom, which guarantee prosperity. If we continue to embrace these ideas, we can become a global power within 35 years,” Milei concluded with gratitude.
The Acceptance of Sergio Massa
“I have communicated with Milei to congratulate him on becoming the president for the next four years,” Massa announced shortly after 8:00 p.m., gracefully accepting his defeat.
“The most important message we want to convey to the Argentinian people is the importance of coexistence, dialogue, and unity in the face of violence and discrimination. It is the path that will lead us towards recovery,” Massa expressed in his concession speech.
According to official data, Milei secured 55.76% of the votes, while Massa received 44.23% in the election. Milei’s victory was particularly notable as he won in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Formosa, and Santiago del Estero, surpassing all predictions. None of the districts gave the libertarian candidate a lead of more than ten points.
We eagerly await the first words of the new president, who will assume office on December 10, succeeding Alberto Fernández.
