  • Argentina

Argentina's conservative opposition was on track to win in the major legislative swing election races on Sunday, official count data showed, a major blow for the ruling Peronist coalition which is likely to lose its majority in the Senate.

The conservative Juntos coalition was marginally ahead on 40.07% versus 38.4% for the ruling Frente de Todos party in the lower-house race in key province of Buenos Aires, a Peronist stronghold, with some 73% of the vote counted.

Juntos was also ahead in key swing Senate races, on track to erase the ruling party's majority in the upper chamber if the results remained unchanged.
