Kirchnerism

Argentine political movement

Kirchnerism (Spanish: Kirchnerismo [kiɾʃneˈɾizmo]) is an Argentine political movement which supports the populist ideals of Néstor Kirchner and his wife Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, both of which were Presidents of Argentina. At first it was seen as part of Peronism, Kirchenists do not support Peronists and identify as part of left-wing populism.[1][2][3]

Néstor Kirchner (left) and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (right) served as Presidents of Argentina from 2003–2007 and 2007–2015.
