Cristina Fernández Presidential Candidate for 2015

The president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, is in the process of changing a constitutional amendment in order for her to run a third term in 2015.
She holds a majority in both houses facilitating her attempt to adjust the amendment to her benefit. Evidently extending her presidency is a main objective on her agenda for the coming months.

The increasingly persistent campaign that exists to promote a constitutional amendment allowing the president to seek a third consecutive nomination is currently prohibited by law. She has not publicly acknowledged that she will be running, however her followers say she is currently the only candidate that can guarantee continuity of the current “project.” It is clear that one of the characteristics of the Argentine government is the lack of predictability and the concentration of power.


From my point of view, any attempt to extend her presidency is an attack on a Democratic country. The Constitution of Argentina is one of the primary sources of existing law in Argentina and any attempt in changing it outrages. I am against any constitutional amendment that will give power to one person.

People in Argentina are outraged by the news of her most probable re-reelection, and many feel powerless, violated and afraid of speaking up. They feel like prisoners in their own country.

La presidenta de Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, está en el proceso de cambiar de una enmienda constitucional para que ella se postulara a un tercer mandato en 2015. Ella tiene mayoría en ambas cámaras para facilitar su intento de ajustar la enmienda a su beneficio. Evidentemente extender su presidencia es un objetivo principal en su agenda para los próximos meses.

La campaña cada vez más persistente que existe para promover una enmienda constitucional que permite a la presidenta buscar una nominación por tercera vez consecutiva está prohibida por la ley. Ella no ha reconocido públicamente que va a correr, sin embargo sus seguidores dicen que es actualmente la única candidata que puede garantizar la continuidad del actual “proyecto”. Es evidente que una de las características del gobierno Argentino es la falta de predictibilidad y la concentración de poder.

Desde mi punto de vista, cualquier intento de extender su presidencia es un ataque a un país democrático. La Constitución de Argentina es una de las principales fuentes de la legislación vigente en la Argentina, y cualquier intento de cambiarlo atentados. Estoy en contra de cualquier enmienda constitucional que le da poder a una persona.

La gente en Argentina están indignados por la noticia de su más probable re-reelección, y muchos se sienten impotentes, violados y con miedo de hablar. Se sienten como prisioneros en su propio país.

    So sad and disturbing when the people of a free nation feel helpless, powerless like “slaves”. Time to speak up and make a change.
