Nestor Carlos Kirchner was the President of Argentina from May 25, 2003 until December 10, 2007. A Justicialist, Kirchner was previously Governor of the Province of Santa Cruz. Currently, Kirchner is a National Deputy, elected for Buenos Aires Province in 2009.
Kirchner was little-known internationally and even domestically before his election, which he won by default with only 22.24 percent of the vote in the first round when former President Carlos Menem (24.45%) withdrew from the race.
Soon after taking office in May 2003, Kirchner surprised the world by standing down powerful military and police officials. Stressing the need to increase accountability and transparency in government, Kirchner overturned amnesty laws for military officers accused of torture and assassinations during the 19761983 "dirty war" under military rule.
