Argentine central bank chief Sandleris says will leave post when Fernandez government begins

BUENOS AIRES, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Argentina's central bank chief Guido Sandleris said on Wednesday he presented his resignation, days before President-elect Alberto Fernandez assumes office.

Speaking at a press conference, Sandleris said he would leave his position on Dec. 10, which is when Fernandez will be sworn into office.

Argentina's economic situation was, without a doubt worse, than expected, Sandleris said. (Reporting by Eliana Raszewski; writing by Cassandra Garrison; editing by Chris Reese)
