Topics: Argentine governors Argentine Justicialist Party politicians

Gildo Insfran (b. 1951) is an Argentine Justicialist Party (PJ) politician, current governor of Formosa Province.

Insfran, a veterinarian, became a provincial legislator in 1983. In 1987, he became vice-governor of Formosa under Governor Vicente Joga, serving for two terms.

Insfran replaced Joga and became Governor of Formosa in 1995, with former governor Floro Bogado as his own vice-governor. He subsequently fell out with Joga, who has pursued his bid to be re-elected to the Supreme Court of Argentina, appealing against the changes in Formosa's laws allowing Insfran to be re-elected indefinitely. Insfran was re-elected in 1999 and again, by a large margin, in 2003. Having been close to former President Carlos Menem, Insfran is now close to President Nestor Kirchner, who defeated Menem in 2003.
