Huge crowd celebrates ‘victorious decade’ of President Fernandez and her late husband

Huge crowd celebrates ‘victorious decade’ of President Fernandez and her late husband
By Associated Press,
Published: May 25

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentine President Cristina Fernandez rallied a huge crowd Saturday night celebrating the 10-year government that she and her late husband Nestor Kirchner began in 2003. Her voice breaking, she called it a victorious decade, “won not by a government but by the people.”

This year’s election will determine whether Fernandez has enough votes in congress to undo constitutional term limits and extend her rule beyond 2015. But she suggested Saturday night that she won’t try. She said “I’m not eternal, nor do I want to be.”

Putting human rights violators on trial and pushing to put more of Argentina’s wealth in the hands of its poorest people will continue to be the pillars of this government, she said. “Equality is the grand symbol of this decade and of those to come,” she vowed.

The Kirchners began an era of social inclusion, external debt reduction and state intervention that was the exact opposite of the privatization binge and anything-goes capitalism that characterized Argentina in the 1990s.

2. A very important decade for Argentina...

 

... as well as for Latin America with Nestor pushing for integration and regional cooperation. May this continue for years and years to come.
