General elections will be held in Argentina on 25 October 2015, with a second round on 24 November if required,[1] and primary elections on 9 August. The previous presidential elections were held on 23 October 2011, whilst the last legislative elections were held in 2013.[2]

Electoral system[edit]

The Constitution of Argentina allows unlimited terms for a given president of Argentina, but only two consecutive terms in a row. After a full 4-year period, a former President of Argentina can be elected again into that Office. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, elected in 2007 and reelected in 2011, is thus unable to run for a third term in 2015. Still, several figures of the Front for Victory have proposed an amendment of the Constitution to allow this. The proposal is heavily resisted by opposition parties.

The parties that would run for the election are not clear. Daniel Scioli, governor of Buenos Aires for the Front for Victory, intends to be the kirchnerist candidate in 2015. Sergio Massa left the party and created a new one, the Renewal Front, and won the 2013 elections in Buenos Aires. Daniel Scioli proposed Massa to return to the party and take part in primary elections, but Massa prefers to run with his own party. Other kirchnerists prefer the governor Sergio Urribarri instead of Scioli. The opposition has potential candidates like the socialist Hermes Binner and the radical Julio Cobos; who are undecided on running with their own parties or creating a political alliance and celebrate primary elections.

Potential presidential candidates[edit]

The following galleries feature individuals who have been the subject of media speculation as being possible candidates in the 2015 presidential election.

Opinion polling[edit]

July 27, 2014[edit]

Polling conducted by González/Valladares/MGMR for Perfil on the 27th of July 2014 has dissident Peronist Massa leading with 28,6%, followed closely by Kirchnerist Scioli (23,9%) and conservative Macri (23,4%). Former vice-president Cobos comes in as distant fourth, as hypothetical UNEN-candidate with 17,3%.[21]

August 13, 2014[edit]

Another poll conducted by Poliarquia for La Nacion in August had the three top candidates virtually tied, with Scioli at 22%, and Massa and Macri at 21%. [22]

September 2014 Polls[edit]

  • Polling conducted by Aragón & Asociados in September showed a lead for Sergio Massa with 28,81% of the votes, followed by a tie between Daniel Scioli and Mauricio Macri with 23,67% and 23,64% of the votes respectively. On the fourth place appears Hermes Binner with 13,34% of total votes. [25]
