  • Description

    President Maria Estela Peron, her health weakened by months of political crisis in Argentina, left Buenos Aires on Sunday (14 September) for a rest.

    She flew out from the capital's Municipal Airport to the Escochinga Club in Cordoba province 600 kilometres (375 miles) northwest. She was accompanied by the wives of the commanders of the three armed forces. The commanders were at the airport to farewell her.

    Crowds of cheering people also went to the airport and chanted "Viva Peron" as she walked to her aircraft. President Peron was accompanied by her constitutional successor, Senator Italo Argentino Luder. He will be interim President while President Peron is away.

    Officials said President Peron would return to the capital by 16 October, in time for Peronist "Loyalty Day" celebrations the following day. However, there was speculation she might step down permanently.

    Meanwhile, on Tuesday (16 September) Senor Luder made a surprise reshuffle in the Cabinet only 48 hours after taking office as Interim President.
