President Alberto Fernández will inaugurate today the 141st period of ordinary sessions of the National Congress, the last of those initiated in his Government since December 2019. It is expected that the speech will have a quota of review and defense of his management and a perspective marked by this year’s elections.

In what will be his fourth opening of an annual Legislative Assembly, the head of state will inaugurate the new parliamentary year in a ceremony that will begin at 11 a.m. in the Chamber of Deputies.

Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will be in charge of the formal rigors of the act and will receive the president on the esplanade of the Legislative Palace on Entre Ríos Avenue, to later escort him to the Blue Room of the Senate to sign the minute book.

Unlike the previous three years, Fernández de Kirchner will be accompanied by the new president of the lower house, Cecilia Moreau, who last year replaced the current economy minister, Sergio Massa, in leading that body.

The vice president will previously attend the formation of the Foreign and Interior commissions that make up deputies and senators from different political spaces to receive the head of state.

The period of ordinary sessions extends between March 1 and November 30 of each year; After this last date, the Executive Power is empowered to extend the ordinary ones and/or call extraordinary sessions.
