Hilda de Duhalde

'''Hilda Beatriz 'Chiche' Gonzalez de Duhalde''' is a politician in Argentina. She is a Senator for Buenos Aires Province and the wife of former President Eduardo Duhalde.

Gonzalez de Duhalde was born in Lomas de Zamora, Buenos Aires Province and studied to become a teacher. She has five children with her husband. She assisted her husband in his political career and took on several public positions in family and women's policy.

In 1997 Duhalde was elected a Deputy for Buenos Aires Province, serving again from 2003.

During the presidency of her husband, she was Minister of Social Welfare and ran the country's food programme, a key role in the aftermath of the country's economic crisis.

A member of the Justicialist Party (PJ), Duhalde has nevertheless opposed the government of fellow Peronist Nestor Kirchner. She came second in the 2005 senatorial elections to Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the President's wife, although she was the official PJ candidate.
