Mauricio Macri, mayor of Buenos Aires and presidential candidate of the Cambiemos party, delivers a speech during the closing rally of his campaign in Humahuaca, Jujuy province on November 19, 2015Argentines decide Sunday whether to end years of leftist government in a run-off vote that could see the pro-business opposition seize command of Latin America’s third-biggest economy. Polls show that the mayor of Buenos Aires, former football executive Mauricio Macri, could force a sharp realignment by beating his left-wing rival Daniel Scioli, an ex-powerboating champion.
