El Congreso: De la Transición a La Actualidad

Desarrollo Económico | 2023

  • Abstract

    The text analyzes the evolution of the Argentine National Congress after the transition to democracy in 1983. One of the main questions of the time was how President Alfonsín would govern without a solid parliamentary majority. Despite the initial challenges, the Congress operated under a unanimity rule to pass laws by consensus. There was a high degree of cooperation between the governing party and the opposition, and the use of decrees of necessity and urgency (DNUs) to legislate in important areas. The text shows that the Argentine Congress functioned continuously, maintained some autonomy in its agenda, and proved to have the capacity to deal with crises during the political transition.
