Nearly all the votes have been counted in Argentina’s first presidential election since the economic crash in 2001.

Argentina is set to have a runoff between two Peronists: ex President Carlos Menem and Governor Nestor Kirchner.

Four years of economic depression have plunged more than half the population below the poverty line.

Menem ruled Argentina between 1989 and 1999. Many Argentines see him as the culprit behind Argentina’s economic collapse, because of his strict adherence to IMF rules.

Menem was held under house arrest last year on charges in a gunrunning scandal; his administration was plagued by corruption scandals.

  • Naomi Klein, award-winning journalist and author of ??Fences and Windows: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Globalization Debate and ??No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies. She is speaking to us from Neuquen, Argentina which is the home of the worker-run ceramics factory Zanon.
