Nestor Kirchner
(Rio Gallegos, 1950 - El Calafate, 2010) Argentine politician, president from 2003 to 2007. Ostoic Néstor Carlos Kirchner was born in Río Gallegos, capital of the province of Santa Cruz In 1976 he received a law degree and returned to Rio Gallegos to practice, along with his wife in a law firm. Administration official in the province of Santa Cruz, in late 1983 was appointed president of the Social Welfare Fund of Rio Gallegos. During the seven years of military dictatorship dark (1976-1983) apparently remained out of politics, but was jailed on one occasion for reasons not specified his official biography.
Governor of Santa Cruz
In the municipal elections in September 1987 as a Peronist candidate, was elected mayor (mayor) of Rio Gallegos. Given the success of his administration, was promoted by the Peronist Party candidate for governor of the province, a position for which he was elected with 61% of the vote on September 8, 1991.
Kirchner's presidency
Days before being sworn in as president, Kirchner unveiled his ministerial portfolio, which held four former government ministers, including the owner of Economy Roberto Lavagna, and included his absolute trust politicians, mostly PJ and some independents. The new team is distinguished by a common denominator in its composition: young politicians (between 43 and 53), outside traditional power circles and carrying a distant state vision to neoconservatism that had ruled the country in recent years.
The inheritance Kirchner received May 25, 2003 was a debt which amounted to 178,000 million dollars and one of the levels of unemployment, poverty and social marginalization highest in the history of Argentina. However, from the outset faced with the complex decision situation in the country and imposed a dizzying pace as the initial measures taken by the media spoke of "effect" or "K style." The new president, to the serious social, political and economic priorities are set as the observance of human rights, combating corruption and revision of neoliberal economic policies that had contributed to the ruin of the country and the depletion of millions of Argentines.
Then, after making public his decision not to run for reelection, Néstor Kirchner's candidate gave his place to his wife, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who won the presidential elections of October 2007 and thus became the first president-elect Argentina. Meanwhile, Kirchner stepped up its activity within the Peronist Party. In legislative elections held on June 28, 2009, Kirchner was presented as the first candidate on the list by Victoria Justicialista Front national deputy for the province of Buenos Aires. When news of the defeat of the training, which only managed 32.1% of the vote, resigned as president of the Peronist Party, a position he resumed March 10, 2010, a month after undergoing surgery for a condition in carotid artery. Kirchner, who had not ruled out again as a candidate for the presidency of Argentina in the 2011 elections, was appointed secretary general of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) on May 4, 2010, just months before his death.
