Peronism in Argentina
The newly elected president is an extension of the Peronists' camp in the country, a group that rejects neoliberal politics and belong to the leftist camp.
Peronism is a left-wing Argentine ideology linked to the policy of former President Juan Peron, who ruled Argentina for nearly 10 years between two presidential periods and founded a system of government facing capitalist liberalism.
Juan Perón presided over Argentina between 1946 and 1955, and was overthrown by a military coup in June 1955, led by the navy fleet led by General Eduardo Leonardi, following a revolution against the deterioration of the political and economic conditions in the country.
Peron then fled to Paraguay, and then to Spain, which made him self-exile, and stayed there for eighteen years until he returned to run again for the presidency in 1973, and wins and remains in office for one year, after he passed away in 1974.
The Peronists, who follow the Juan Peron curriculum, adopt leftist ideological policies that reject neoliberalism and consider alternative to it, which could open the door to a hidden clash with the United States in the coming period, with Mauricio Macri's departure from power and leftist Alberto Fernandez holding the reins.
