Testing time for Argentina leader

Defeat of candidates belonging to ruling party raises doubts about Cristina Fernandez's re-election chances.

    In modern Argentinian politics, President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner continues to dominate.

    After her husband, former President Nestor Kirchner, passed away last year, her approval ratings skyrocketed. However, there is uncertainty about her re-election in the forthcoming presidential election, in October.

    The defeat of her candidates in recent elections show that Kirchner still has work to do to win in the first round of elections.
