Presidential candidate Alberto Fernández is in Spain this week, giving university lectures and meeting with government officials.
While the trip was planned long before the presidential hopeful’s landslide victory in August’s PASO primary vote, the trip is his first foray onto the international stage.
“I’m never going to act as the winner,” Fernández told reporters. “We always have to be calm.”
The Frente de Todos candidates closed door lecture at the University of Camilo José Cela was titled “How to bring politics closer to the citizenry: a perspective on electoral campaigns.”
The talk was reportedly two hours long and attended by 30 students and university staff.
Fernández has given lectures at the university since 2014, according to his LinkedIn profile.
The presidential candidate reportedly refused to move the event to a larger auditorium, choosing to stay in a classroom setting, according to the Spanish news agency Alnavío.
On Thursday, Fernández intends to meet with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, who will receive the Peronist politician at the Palace of Moncloa.
Accompanying the former cabinet chief during the trip are Congressional Deputy Felipe Sola and political advisor Miguel Cuberos.
