Politics and law

Politics

According to the constitution of August 24, 1994, Argentina is a presidential federal republic. Head of state, supreme owner of the executive and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who is directly elected for a period of 4 years (only one direct re-election possible). If none of the candidates receives 45% or 40% of the votes in the first ballot with a gap of at least 10% to their strongest rival, a runoff is required. The head of cabinet appointed by the president conducts government affairs and can be removed by a vote of no confidence by parliament (absolute majority of both chambers required). However, his room for maneuver is restricted by being bound by instructions from the President. President 2015–19 was M. Macri , Candidate of the conservative electoral alliance »Cambiemos«. He failed in the fight against the severe economic crisis with recession, great depreciation of the peso and high inflation. The population voted him out on October 27, 2019. The winner of the election with 48.1% of the votes and the new president (from December 10, 2019) is Peronist A. Fernández .

The legislature lies with the National Congress, consisting of the Chamber of Deputies (Cámara de Diputados; 257 members, elected for four years) and the Senate (Senado; 72 senators, elected directly for six years). Half of the members of the Chamber of Deputies are appointed every two years and one third of the senators are appointed every two years. Both chambers and the executive have the right to introduce bills; every law requires the approval of both chambers. The President has a suspensive veto right in the legislative process, which can be overruled by a two-thirds majority of both chambers.

National symbols

The national flag shows the colors blue over white over blue in horizontal stripes. The state flag bears the golden May sun (“sol de mayo”) with 32 alternating straight and flamed rays on the front in a white stripe.

The coat of arms (1813) shows the Phrygian cap against a sky-blue-silver background (national colors since 1812), a symbol of freedom; it is held by two “faithful hands” symbolizing the fraternal covenant of the united provinces. The coat of arms is surrounded by a green wreath of leaves, on the coat of arms a golden May sun with 19 alternating straight and flamed rays.

National holidays are May 25th (May Revolution 1810) and July 9th (Independence Day). Check fashionissupreme to see Argentina As a Destination Country.

Parties

Traditional parties are the Partido Justicialista (PJ; Peronists ) founded in 1946 and the Unión Cívica Radical (UCR; German Radical Citizens’ Union) founded in 1890. The Peronist camp is characterized by fragmentation into different currents or electoral alliances with different programmatic approaches. This is how NC Kirchner came into being 2003 the left-Peronist alliance Frente para la Victoria (FPV; German Front für den Sieg). In 2013 the conservative-Peronist electoral alliance Frente Renovador (FR; German Renewal Front) was formed as an antipole to the FPV. The Kirchner camp was newly formed in 2017 in the Unidad Ciudadana party (UC; German citizen unit). The UCR is part of the bourgeois-conservative alliance Cambiemos (German Let’s Change), founded in 2015, to which the parties Propuesta Republicana (PRO; German Republican proposal; founded 2005) and the Coalición Cívica (CC-ARI; German Citizens’ Coalition) belong.

Unions

The Argentine trade unions traditionally have great political influence and relatively high membership. The largest trade union federation is the Peronist Confederación General del Trabajo (CGT).
