“I trust that tomorrow, we will be able to start working with Javier Milei to guarantee an orderly transition,” he wrote. He thanked Sergio Massa and Agustín Rossi, the presidential ticket for his Unión por la Patria coalition, but did not congratulate Milei in the message.
The president has taken a back seat during the campaign. Although he was eligible to run for re-election, he announced in April that he would not stand as a candidate.
Javier Milei won a landslide victory in Sunday’s presidential run-off, securing 56% of the vote — a 12 percentage point lead over Massa.
