Background: In Argentina, thousands of youthful supporters of General Peron gathered outside his suburban home in Buenos Aires on Saturday (21st July) demanding that he be made President at once. Dr. Hector Campora resigned form the Presidency nine days ago after only seven week in office to clear the way for General Peron to become President.
Now Presidential election have been set for September 23rd and General Peron is expected to run and win, but the Peronist Youth Organisation wants the process speeded up.
As well as chanting "Peron, President, immediately" the demonstrators also chanted slogans hostile to two of General Peron's closest aides; his Private Secretary, the Social Welfare Minister Jose Lopez Rega, and the Secretary general of the Confederation of Labour, Senor Jose Rucci.
The young Peronists have accused the two aides of being "counter-revolutionary", and it holds them responsible for the boldshed when General Peron returned to Argentina last month after nearly 18 years in exile.
General Peron is reported to have urged the youth leaders to give the provisional government their full support and contribute to keeping the peace.
The 77-year-old General left his home on Sunday for the first time in tow weeks to call on a heart specialist. The Doctor said later that the General was in very good health.
