Argentine President Cristina Fernández congressional group, 'Victory Front' submitted a bill in the Lower House to regulate street protests in a move that seeks to “guarantee and reinforce” the rights of citizens forced to deal with roadblocks and traffic chaos. The project bans the carrying of weapon by security forces during demonstrations too.
Argentine president Cristina Fernandez denied point blank any prospects of her running for office for a third consecutive period or any other elected post in the 2015 elections. Member of Congress Carlos Kunkel, considered an 'ultra-Kirchnerite' said on Christmas that at the end of her mandate Cristina will continue in politics. However Cristina will apparently decide on the incumbent presidential candidate for 2015.
A close advisor to President Cristina Fernandez lawmaker Carlos Kunkel defended the possibility of amendments to the 1994 Argentine constitution but cautioned that “no formal decision about it has been made on a congressional or party level.”
Argentine lawmaker and close counsellor of President Cristina Fernandez Carlos Kunkel rejected on Tuesday the idea that the ‘Kichnerite era’ could end if President Cristina Fernández is not re-elected in 2015 presidential elections as has been suggested by some of her followers and the opposition.
The rumours of a constitutional amendment in Argentina which could include a re-re-election review privileging a possible third consecutive mandate for President Cristina Fernandez have again resurfaced and this time by a close confident of the Kirchner family.
Relations between Argentina and the United States are ‘excellent’ said ultra ‘Kirchnerite’ lawmaker Carlos Kunkel who discarded as ‘interested parties’ versions indicating certain ‘discomfort’ in President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner administration with the coming visit of President Barack Obama to El Salvador, Chile and Brazil.
