  • Description

    General Jorge Rafael Videla, President of Argentina, has surprised the nation by making a rare public appearance.

    The President took up a position on the balcony of Government House in Buenos Aires on Saturday (8 May) to witness the changing of the guard ceremony.

    It was the first such ceremony since the new regime took power from Maria Estela Peron earlier this year.

    The presidential guard is composed of a squad from the Regiment of the Mounted Grenadiers, created by Argentina's independence hero, Jose de San Martin.

    The squad is replaced periodically in a brief and colourful ceremony but the occasion does not call for the presence of the Head of State.
