This weekend marks ten years since the Kirchner family came to power in Argentina.

Cristina Kirchner, who succeeded her husband Nestor Kirchner in 2007, plans to celebrate the anniversary, which comes amid flagging economy and high inflation.

Cristina and her late husband Nestor together led the country since the latter was first elected president in 2003, leading Agrentina out of devastating economic crisis to a period of surging growth.

Critics say that rising corruption, crime, and Cristina's increasingly authoritarian tone have caused the president's popularity to plummet, sparking massive anti-government protests in recent months.
