Jose Alperovich

Jose Jorge Alperovich is an Argentine politician, currently the governor of Tucuman Province.

Alperovich was born in Banda del Rio Sali to Israeli parents, in 1955. He was a member of the centrist Radical Civic Union until he was approached by the then-Governor of Tucuman, Julio Miranda, to be provincial economy minister, joining the Justicialist Party in 2001. He became a national senator in 2001 and won as governor in 2003 and 2007.

Some commentators alleged that he would not be able to become governor if elected because of the provincial law that required him to give an oath on the Christian Bible. Nevertheless, the Supreme Court's amendment of Tucuman's Constitution allowed Alperovich to take the oath using the Hebrew Torah, helping preventing future religious discrimination against potential candidates.
