Rep. Ullado and Undersecretary Corach, both members of the Argentine government, spoke on their country’s political system, elections, and government. The Argentine government, loosely based on the United States system of government, has undergone a number of military coups in its history but is now based on a Constitutional system. Argentina’s Parliament is made up of a House with 254 directly elected representatives and a Senate of 48 indirectly elected members. Undersecretary Corach said Argentina was currently undergoing privatization of a number of industries, including the airports, television, and gas stations, led by the “economic revolution” of the current Argentine president. A short videotape from the Chamber of Deputies in Buenos Aires showed the Argentine president addressing a session of the Argentine parliament. close
