Argentina: Honouring Alfonsin

Argentina is beginning to mark 25 years since the end of the dictatorship. Accordingly, President Fernandez de Kirchner unveiled a bust of the first democratic President after the junta, Raul Alfonsin, in the presidential palace. Alfonsin himself, now 81 and present at the event, stated that "there will be no more de facto Presidents here" (referring, naturally, to the succession of illegitimate presidents during the dictatorship).
