Argentina's Presidential Elections: What You Need to Know

Argentina will hold presidential and legislative elections on October 25th with a possible second round on November 22nd. With Peronism still the country's dominant political force, and after 12 years of the combined rule of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her late husband, Néstor Kirchner, is Argentina on the cusp of political change?

In the event of a second round, what are the possbilities that an alliance of the second- and third-place candidates, Mauricio Macri and Sergio Massa, will emerge triumphant?
