Background: Former Argentine President Arturo Frondizi paid a visit on Senor Juan Peron, the country's former strongman, on Friday (December 1) to discuss the political future of the country.
The meeting was one of several that Senor Peron has held with former presidents and the leaders of political parties since his arrival back in Argentina on November 17.
No details of the discussions with Senor Frondizi were released.
But the talks came at a time when the military government of President Alejandro Lanusse is refusing to rescind a residence ruling which effectively bars Senor peron from running for President in the general elections next March.
Senor Peron, who went into exile when a military uprising ended his nine-year-rule in September 1955, returned to Argentina almost three months after the August 25 deadline for potential candidates to take up permanent residence in the country.
Leaders of more than 20 political parties who met with Senor Peron shortly after his return have asked the military government to rescind the deadline, claiming it was unconstitutional.
The elections are aimed at ending almost seven years of military rule in Argentine and General Lanusse has pledged that he will hand over to the elected authorities on May 25.
