  • Description

    Amid rumours of her pending resignation, President Martin Estela Peron made an unexpected appearance at a military graduation ceremony in Buenos Aires on Thursday (6 February). The President has been on "holidays" sparking rumours that she was intending to submit her resignation unless the country showed support. Her late husband played a similar game ... and won.

    Mrs Peron went to the Colon Opera House to hand out sabres to non Argentine cadets who have been studying in Buenos Aires under military scholarships. Other sabres were handed out to honours graduates from the Argentine military services.

    Speaking to the cadets. President Peron said spiritual values were losing ground to materialism and violence was becoming a sign of the times. Only the day after she spoke, urban guerrillas claiming to be the true followers of the late President Juan Peron assassinated a director of one of Argentina's biggest industrial empires. They also kidnapped a businessman as they continued a campaign, started in September, against the Government of President Maria Peron.
