president, opposition candidate@ (Corrects first sentence to say IMF will be meeting with the economic advisers to presidential candidates, not with the candidates themselves)

BUENOS AIRES, Aug 23 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund said on Friday that a team will meet with the economic advisers to the country's main presidential candidates to exchange views.

The team is due to arrive in Argentina on Saturday, the IMF said in a statement, and will discuss the "recent economic and financial developments" and the government's policy plans.

President Mauricio Macri will seek re-election in October, but was trounced in the primary election on Aug. 11 by opposition candidate and main challenger Alberto Fernandez. (Reporting by Cassandra Garrison; Editing by Richard Chang)
