BUENOS AIRES - Argentina's fiery center-leftist president, Cristina Fernandez, swept to a landslide re-election victory on Sunday, crowning a comeback that seemed unthinkable for much of her turbulent first term.

With 15.5 percent of polling stations counted, official results showed Fernandez winning with 53 percent of the vote, 36 percentage points ahead of her nearest rival, Socialist Hermes Binner.

No Argentine leader has won such a big share of the vote since General Juan Domingo Peron was elected for the third time with 62 percent in 1973, and tens of thousands of jubilant Fernandez supporters packed the square in front of the famous pink presidential palace.
