Herminio Iglesias

Herminio Iglesias was an Argentine politician.

The son of Galician immigrants, at the age of 13, Iglesias began to work in a factory, where, at age 21, he was appointed as a union shop steward.

Henceforward a supporter of the Peronist Party, Iglesias was elected as the Mayor of Avellaneda in the Province of Buenos Aires upon Juan Domingo Peron's 1973 return from exile and subsequent election to his final turn at the Argentine Presidency. Aligning himself with Peron's most right-wing adviser, Jose Lopez Rega, during the internal strife that followed Peron's 1974 passing, he was dismissed from this post following the 1976 military coup headed by General Jorge Videla.
