Citizen's Unity is a new political alliance which Fernandez announced in early July which aims to form a broad coalition of parties against the neoliberalism of Macri's administration. Argentina's Peso weakened nearly 10% since Cristina Fernandez broke with more moderate factions of Peronism movement and declared her candidacy on June 24.

Argentina's peso opened 3.27 pct stronger at 17.14 per dollar on Monday after a mid-term legislative primary election was seen as favoring business-friendly President Mauricio Macri's reform effort.

Argentina's former leftist leader Cristina Fernandez and President Mauricio Macri's candidate Esteban Bullrich were tied with almost 96 percent of votes counted in a Senate primary election held on August 13. However, analysts said a defeat for Fernandez would strengthen his negotiating position.

A July poll conducted by Ricardo Rouvier and Associates of 1,600 voters showed that Fernandez enjoys a 35.6 percent voter intention, with a 2.4 percent margin of error.

Under Macri, economic controls were lifted and social spending slashed, undoing numerous progressive gains made under the Kirchner presidencies of Fernandez and her late husband Nestor Kirchner.
