  • Description

    Argentina's Justice Party Congress met in Buenos Aires on Saturday, and nominated 77 year-old General Juan Peron, as their Presidential candidate for the country's Presidential elections in September.

    Hundreds of supporters of the former President packed the Cervantes Theatre to hear the results. They burst into renewed applause when it was announced that the General's 42 year-old wife, Isabel, had been chosen as Vice-Presidential candidate.

    Shortly after the nominations were approved, however, the Congress received a message from Senora Peron, asking that the General be given "a few days" to decide whether or not to accept the nomination.

    According to his doctors, he has been suffering from a minor heart ailment since he returned to the country in June after nearly eighteen years in exile.
