The libertarian candidate for president of Argentina, Javier Milei, has accused the National Gendarmerie of altering ballot boxes and documentation in favor of the government candidate, Sergio Massa. In a complaint filed with the Federal Court, Milei and his sister Karina claimed a “colossal fraud” that led to a significant change in the electoral result.
According to the complaint, the Gendarmerie and regional heads altered the contents of ballot boxes and documentation in several cities and provinces to benefit Massa. Milei’s coalition is calling for more active participation from the Argentine Air Force and Navy in the security of the electoral process to prevent further fraud.
The Minister of Security, Aníbal Fernández, has announced that he will file a criminal complaint against Milei’s coalition in response to these allegations. However, Milei and his supporters are calling for stricter control and transparency in the transfer of ballot boxes to prevent future fraudulent activities.
The situation has heightened concerns about the integrity of the upcoming election and raised questions about the role of security forces in the electoral process. Despite these allegations, tensions remain high as candidates and their supporters continue to challenge the legitimacy of the electoral process.
The second round of presidential election is set to take place on Sunday, but there is uncertainty about its outcome as both sides continue to make claims about irregularities in voting processes.
