relations in Senate primary by Argentina's Fernandez

(MENAFN) Argentina's previous populist head Cristina Fernandez and business-friendly President Mauricio Macri's preferred candidate were nearly related in a closely watched Senate primary on Sunday, with few votes left to be counted.

In addition, with 87.97 percent of voting stations, Macri's coalition led by previous education minister Esteban Bullrich had 34.31 percent of votes compared with 33.98 percent for Fernandez's list in Buenos Aires province.

Bullrich's lead narrowed significantly late in the count in a hotly contested battle to represent the area that is home to nearly 40 percent of Argentina's electorate.
