The campaign of Argentine presidential candidate Sergio Massa (Unión por la Patria) released an election advertisement comparing his opponent, Javier Milei (La Libertad Avanza), to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The images, produced with images generated from artificial intelligence, show the Falklands War, a traumatic episode in Argentina’s history in which the country faced British troops during the Thatcher government.
The video shows Argentine soldiers. Then, the former prime minister gives the order for the attack. Before the bombing, Javier Milei’s voice appears saying that “in the history of humanity there have been great leaders, Mrs Thatcher was one of them”.
An excerpt from the debate on Sunday (12), in which Massa said that “a country cannot be led by those who admire its enemies”, ends the video.
Thatcher is highly regarded in the country for having led the war in 1982.
Second round in Argentina
Sergio Massa, representative of Unión por la Patria, faces Javier Milei, of La Libertad Avanza, in the second round of Argentina’s presidential elections this Sunday.
Milei leads the useful vote intentions for the second round, with 52.1%, according to the latest AtlasIntel survey, released on Friday (10). Massa appears with 47.9%.
When intentions are measured in total votes, Milei has 48.6%, against Massa’s 44.6%. 2.3% say they don’t know who to vote for, while 4.4% are divided between the option for blank and invalid votes.
The survey interviewed 8,971 people over the age of 16 randomly and via digital means between Sunday (5) and Thursday (9). The margin of error is plus or minus one percentage point, and the confidence level is 95%.
