President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was sharing lunch today with outgoing and elected provincial governors from the Victory Front ruling party.

Cabinet Chief Aníbal Fernández today said the swear-in ceremony and the handover of power must take place in Congress “as established by the Constitution.” He was rejecting statements made last night by lawmaker-elect Emilio Monzó, who confirmed that Macri will be sworn-in as president in Congress, but that the handover of power will take place at the Government House.

An oral criminal court today sentenced former president Carlos Menem to four years and six months of prison and former Economy Minister Domingo Cavallo to three years and six months, in the trial for alleged illegal “bonus payments” while in office.
