20 years after the presidential inauguration of Nestor Kirchner, officials and political leaders remembered the legacy of the former president through different publications on social networks. Some used the hashtag #imitemoselejemplo or #Néstornosune, among others. There were also those who invited the act in Plaza de Mayo that will be headed today by the vice president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
Kirchnerism celebrates 20 years marking the political future in Argentina with fire. That faction of Peronism began in 2003 with the presidency of Néstor, continued with that of her wife from 2007 to 2015 and currently governs with her as vice president of Alberto Fernandez.
The president recalled on social networks the assumption of Néstor at the head of the Casa Rosada, highlighting that the man from Santa Cruz “united and called to believe in the transformation of the Homeland”. In his posts, he included a video with fragments of different Patagonian speeches and concluded with the phrase: “Nestor unites us”.
“Thanks to him, from the cold winds of the south, all of Argentina recovered the warmth of the embrace and the collective struggle. He united us and called us, with enormous courage, to believe in the transformation of the country to face the greatest adversities. And win”said the head of state.
The vice president, who is trying to break away from the current economic crisis, will lead an act this Thursday in the Plaza de Mayo to commemorate the new anniversary of her husband’s assumption of the presidency, after winning the elections on April 27, 2003 with just 22% of the votes, after his opponent, also a Peronist Carlos Menemwho had won the first round (24.45%), gave up appearing in the second.
Kirchner received an economy that was already stabilizing and that during his administration it grew strongly while enjoying an external context of high prices of raw materials, low interest rates and a weak dollar. He maintained twin surpluses -fiscal and external- and made progress in deleveraging -restructuring the debt in default and with the International Monetary Fund-.
Society appreciated this redistributive policy, a bonanza that generates nostalgia for part of the population given the strong imbalances that the country is going through today, although inflation also returned with the Kirchners, to which they responded with the intervention of the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses. , which started to report lower than real inflation.
