A new era in Argentine politics

Mark P. Jones

A new era in Argentine politics.

December 10 will mark the end of the 12-and-a-half-year-long Kirchner era in Argentina. One of three men will succeed President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who succeeded her husband, Néstor Kirchner, in 2007, writes Mark Jones, fellow in political science. "The country's next president will almost without question be more supportive of free enterprise and private investment, have a greater respect for the rule of law — both domestic and international — and pursue a more centrist and pragmatic foreign policy than President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner."
