The Casa Rosada, where the Kirchners have made their second home for the past 12 years, was emptier than usual on the Monday following October 25th’s elections. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner cast her vote and quietly stole away to Río Gallegos where today she pays homage to her husband, former President Néstor Kirchner, on the fifth anniversary of his death.

Cristina and her son Máximo plan to visit the Mausoleum in Santa Cruz where Néstor’s remains lie. While Cristina has yet to officially comment on the ballotage resulting from Sunday’s elections, she has reached out to her sister in law, Alicia Kirchner, to congratulate her on her victory as the new governor of Santa Cruz.

Cristina and her son Máximo plan to visit the Mausoleum in Santa Cruz where Néstor’s remains lie. While Cristina has yet to officially comment on the ballotage resulting from Sunday’s elections, she has reached out to her sister in law, Alicia Kirchner, to congratulate her on her victory as the new governor of Santa Cruz.

Born on February 25, 1950, and elected into office from 2003 to 2007, the defunct president guided Argentina into more progressive social policies. After taking power in 2003, Néstor vowed to make prosecuted repressors of the last military dictatorship who committed crimes during the Dirty War of the 1970s  see justice. So far, 500 people have been sentenced, and over 1,000 convicted.

The former President suffered a heart attack and died at age 60 in his Calafate home.
