Background: After only three days in office Argentina's interim-President, Italo Luder, has started reshaping his cabinet and sworn in new Interior and Defence Ministers.
Senor Luder heads a caretaker government that will be in power while President Maria Estela Peron takes time off to recover from nervous exhaustion. However observers are now predicting that the sudden cabinet changes could indicate that Senor Luder intends to stay in power longer than the two month reign officially announced.
On Tuesday (16 September) he swore in Senor Angol Robledo as Interior Minister and Senor Tomas Vottero as Defence Minister. The newcomers replace Colonel Vicente Damasco and Senor Jorge Garrido. Informed sources say further changes in key ministries are planned.
The night before there had been minor street clashes between police and demonstrators during an anti-Government rally at the Luna Park sports stadium. About ten thousand people attended the rally held to commemorate the fall of General Juan Peron's government in nineteen fifty five. The General was ousted by the military. He returned from exile in Spain in nineteen seventy three and ruled Argentina until his death in July last year.
