“We know where we are heading and we know where we do not want to return” were the first words uttered by former President Nestor Kirchner at the National Assembly at the start of the Kirchner cycle.
After 12 years in power, Kirchnerism will lose control of Congress, as the latter is preparing for a political change that might give it the leadership it lacked during the last years.
The presidential model might open its doors to a Parliament which, due to its future composition after the elections to be held in October, might balance power. Were Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to run for Congresswoman, she could either alter the political landscape or be a mere Congresswoman.
The report drafted in collaboration with the Public Affairs Team of LLORENTE & CUENCA Argentina analyses the work of the National Congress during the last twelve years of Kirchnerism, as well as the new scenario after the Argentine presidential elections of October.
