Elections in Corrientes: Cobos’ ally Arturo Colombi affirms he will be in second round
The candidate ally of Vice President Julio Cobos, Arturo Colombi, runner-up in yesterday’s elections, criticized versions indicating he would not take part in the second round.
“We will review our strategy and we will be with our proposals on 4 October,” said the provincial representative to the press this morning at the Government House.
His aides reinforced what the candidate had said: “It’s Ricardo, who want to demoralize our troops who say that we will not present ourselves. Still intact chances of victory in the ballot.”
The final outcome of the provisional count, shortly after 10 threw a result of 36.24 percent of votes for the radical Ricardo Colombi, and 31.64 percent of the votes for the governor and current candidate for Frente de Todos, Arturo Colombi.
Meanwhile, Ricardo Colombi said he had a “five points” advantage over his cousin but acknowledged that that difference “is not enough” to win the election in the first round, so there will be a second round to determine the future provincial president.
