Argentina: Elections show the need for a socialist alternative

28/04/2003, The first round of Presidential elections in Argentina have left former Peronist President Carlos Menem in a run off with the government backed Néstor Kirchner, also a Peronist standing for the Unión de Centro Democrático. These elections have revealed a massive political fragmentation amongst all of the parties. As the Spanish daily El País commented the elections have shown: "…an historic political fragmentation" (24 April 2003). There were three Peronists candidates, three former members of Unión Cívica Radical, four candidates from the socialist left and three supporters of the military, retired generals.

07/07/2001, Argentina’s financial crisis is threatening an economic meltdown which could also sink the economies of South and Central America and have a catastrophic impact on the world economy.
