Congratulations @JMilei for the victory in the Presidential elections. Look forward to working closely with you to diversify and expand India-Argentina strategic partnership.

In addition to his notable proposal for dollarization, Miley’s political agenda includes controversial measures such as reducing regulations on gun control and transferring authority over the penitentiary system from civilians to the military – a strong stance on crime prevention.
Additionally, Miley advocates using public funds to assist families who choose private education for their children. He goes further by proposing privatization of the health sector, a significant departure from Argentina’s historical reliance on public health care.
Even before the official results were announced, Miley’s rival Sergio Massa accepted the run-off vote. Massa acknowledged Miley’s victory in a brief speech, saying, “Miley is president-elect for the next four years.” Massa also revealed that he had already reached out to Miley to congratulate her. The election result sets the stage for a possible change in Argentina’s political landscape under Miley’s leadership.
