Argentina favours a Chainsaw President

Argentina is going to the polls this weekend to choose a new President and this time the wild card looks like he is ahead.

Javier Milei is an economist, but carries a chainsaw and aims to cut spending, privatise government assets and ban abortion.  Sounds like a real right-winger, but in this case the younger people are right behind him simply to get rid of the disastrous options they have with other candidates who have brought Argentina to the brink.
