Aggressive election campaigns have led to disruptions and threats against candidates. Before the runoff election for the Argentine presidency, candidate Sergio Massa and his son were threatened by five people. Three men and a woman were arrested in connection with the threats. Meanwhile, a teenager was arrested in Salta for threatening to kill the 17-year-old son of presidential candidate Massa on Instagram.
The election campaign has been intense, with Massa running against ultra-liberal populist Javier Milei in a neck-and-neck race. Milei describes himself as an anarcho-capitalist and has caused controversy with populist slogans. His opponents accused him of standing for a “dictatorship” and accompanied boos at an opera performance with slogans.
The legal investigation into the threats against Massa and his family has resulted in personal protection orders being issued. In addition to this, there are numerous links to criminal attorney directories scattered throughout the content.
