Outgoing vice president Cristina Kirchner was the protagonist of an unusual move when she entered Congress this afternoon to join the Legislative Assembly where Javier Milei took office as the new President.
The former president responded to some insults with “fuck you.” He was accompanied by his son, the national deputy Máximo Kirchner.
The libertarian Javier Miley was sworn in this Sunday as the new president of the Republic of Argentina before the National Congress and began a new mandate in the uninterrupted democratic cycle since the return of democracy in 1983 with Raúl Alfonsín.
The leader of La Libertad Avanza plans from Hotel Libertador at 10:30 escorted by the “General San Martín” Horse Grenadier Regiment, arrived at Congress after 11:30.
The Legislative Assembly begins led by the outgoing vice president, Cristina Kirchner. The legislative procedure began with the appointment of the legislators who will make up the Interior and Exterior Commissions, respectively, who are in charge of receiving Milei and Victoria Villarruel at the esplanade.
From there, Milei was taken to the Blue Room, where he met Villarruel, signed the Books of Honor of the Honorable Senate of the Nation and the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation. Immediately, with Villarruel, he went to the place for the Interior Commission.
First, Cristina Kirchner swears in her successor who will then be in charge of the Legislative Assembly: at 12 the new Government legally begins.
Villarruel swears in Javier Milei
The vice president Victoria Villarruel swore in Milei as the new President and immediately after the Chief Government Notary read the corresponding minutes and proceeded to send the insignia, which The outgoing president, Alberto Fernández, handed over the baton to his successor.
Javier Milei will take office on December 10 as the president of Argentina.
Symbolically, this is the act of formal investiture although, unlike the swearing-in, the conferment of presidential attributes is not legally conferred. The tradition of presenting the virtues was established in 1960 under the Ceremonial Regulations of the Presidency.
The oath protocol is given in article 93 of the National Constitution: “Upon taking office, the President and vice president will take an oath, in the hands of the president of the Senate and before the Congress that meets in Assembly, respecting their religious beliefs. , to: ‘act with loyalty and patriotism in the position of President (or vice president) of the Nation and faithfully observe and ensure that the Constitution of the Argentine Nation is followed.’
Afterwards, Milei and Villarruel signed the Notarial Act in front of the Notary General of the Nation and, when this ceremony was over, the President began to give the classic speech, but not on the spot, but instead. He did this on the steps of the entrance to Congress, on Entre Ríos Avenue.
In this way, it will imitate the ceremonies of the leaders of the United States, who do it from the doors of the Capitol.
