Boudou in charge of presidency
Article 88 of the National Constitution says the Vice-President will be in charge of the Executive Branch while President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner recovers from her health condition.
The president had been ordered a 30-month rest after she was diagnosed with a subdural haematoma. Boudou had to cancel two official trips to Brazil and France and today headed the first official ceremony at the Government House, where he stressed the president was taking "a needed and deserved rest."
