2 - Argentina since 1946

On 24 February 1946 General Juan Domingo Peron was elected president of Argentina in an open poll. Peron, after trying with limited success to obtain the backing of the traditional parties, decided to launch his presidential candidacy by appealing to the popular support he had developed when in office. In January 1947, when the organizers of the new party approached Peron to approve the name 'Partido Peronista', they explicitly sanctioned another and more decisive feature of the political structure of the movement. The Argentine Revolution found itself on the defensive at the end of 1966. Ongania had alienated those who had supported him and was under pressure on the military front. Between 1946 and 1948, Argentina had to face the obstacles to its foreign trade raised by boycott which the United States government had imposed as a consequence of Argentina's neutrality in the Second World War.
