Carlos Soria is an Argentine Justicialist Party (PJ) politician, currently mayor of General Roca, Rio Negro Province. He was the Secretary of Intelligence of the Argentine Republic during parts of 2002. He was appointed to temporarily fill the position by then President Eduardo Duhalde, after the fall of Fernando de la Rua's government.

Soria was elected a deputy in the Argentine Chamber of Deputies three times until called on by Duhalde to become Secretary of Intelligence.

The major event in Soria's term as Secretary was his indictment on the assassination of two piquetero leaders, because of the alleged participation of SIDE in the operation. For more information, see the article about the incident here.

Ater Soria's resignation following his alleged involvement in the 'massacre', he stood as PJ candidate to be governor of Rio Negro in 2003, without success, but was elected to be mayor of General Roca.
