- Argentine Interior Minister Eduardo de Pedro presented a letter of resignation Wednesday to President Fernandez, according to a document sent by his spokesman by message, amid mounting political pressure.
- De Pedro was one of the top officials allied with the more radical "Kirchnerist" wing of the center-left government of Fernández, who faces a battle to win back moderate voters ahead of a midterm ballot in November.
- He becomes the first high profile casualty from the government following a bruising election loss for the ruling party in midterm primaries over the weekend.
- Local newspaper La Nacion also reported that two additional ministers and two senior officials sent letters offering to resign in the wake of the government's primary midterm defeat on Sunday, according to a Bloomberg article. They were named as the following:
- Justice Minister Martin Soria
- Science and Technology Minister Roberto Salvarezza
- Director of PAMI, Luana Volnovich
- Director of Anses, Fernanda Raverta
