After that presentation, the former minister and mayor of Montevideo emphasized that her political force will govern again and thanked “the glorious militancy of the Broad Front.”

“Today the return of the Broad Front began. Starting tomorrow, it will come back with full force to transform reality and restore hope to Uruguay. We must always move forward,” Cosse said.

Meanwhile, Orsi also thanked the supporters of his political force, which he described as “diverse and progressive.”

“The Broad Front is also broad in its vision to transform everything necessary for the well-being of our people. We are and seek change, which we do not understand as demolition,” he said, adding that the Broad Front must grow but always with its values as a starting point.

“Among those values, our guide must continue to be the triumph of honesty in the management of public affairs,” the leftist presidential candidate emphasized.

So far, the Electoral Court has counted 37 percent of the electoral circuits and is publishing preliminary results of the primary elections. In the Broad Front, Yamandu Orsi leads with about 61 percent of the votes, while Carolina Cosse has accumulated 36 percent.
