Political demonstrations and rallies are possible throughout the country, notably in the capital Buenos Aires, in the lead up to runoff presidential elections scheduled for Sunday, October 27. A series of anti-government protests have already taken place in opposition of current President Mauricio Macri's administration, who is running for a second term.
Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around all election-related events and polling stations.
The primary election in August 2019 declared Alberto Fernandez and current President Mauricio Macri as the two candidates who would proceed to the final presidential election scheduled for October 27. Fernandez collected 47.4 percent of the vote, whereas Macri collected 32.3 percent.
Individuals in Argentina are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid any protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
