Argentina opposition has chance to win presidency after 12 years
By Hugh Bronstein BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina's center-right opposition, led by candidate Mauricio Macri, has its best chance in more than a decade to wrest the presidency from the populist Peronists in a run-off election Sunday and set the economy on a markedly different course. Outgoing President Cristina Fernandez, who was preceded in office by her late husband Nestor Kirchner, is as revered by the poor for her generous welfare programs as she is reviled by business for the strict controls the couple put on the economy over 12 years in power. Barred from seeking a third straight term, she will leave office next month with Argentina deeply divided between those who want the government to keep playing a strong role in their lives and those who back the opposition's free-market policies.
