Background: A right-wing Peronist was sworn in as Governor of the province of Cordoba in Argentina on Friday (15 March) after a wave of violence sparked by a police revolt two weeks ago, which toppled the elected governor Ricardo Obregon Cano.
A force of 150 heavily armed police ringed Government House as the former history teacher, Duilio Brunello, took his oath as the Federal Government's trustee. Police dispersed demonstrators who threw leaflets attacking the new provincial authorities and Federal government of President Juan Peron.
Early the following morning left-wing urban guerrillas of The People's Revolutionary Army blew up a radio station which had been occupied by supporters of the rebel police. Police said other bomb explosions damaged a police station, a union building and several private residences.
A gun battle between left and right-wing factions of the Peronist movement was reported at the headquarters of the Health Workers Union which the rightists had occupied when the police rebelled.
The new Governor, Senor Brunello, will take his orders direct from the Federal Government. He is closely linked to General Peron's Private Secretary, who is a right-wing leader.
The former Governor, who resigned after the police revolt ???ripped him of effective power, came under pressure after General Peron had ordered a purge of extreme left-wingers in his Justicialist Party. At least seven people were killed in the battles that followed between the ousted Governor's left-wing supporters and police.
