The most recent move against the Kirchner legacy comes from a ruling Cambiemos (Let's Change) lawmaker, Josefina Mendoza, who is pushing in Argentina's Congress for a law to heighten restrictions on public monuments.
"It seemed important to me that we establish a standard by which people who are prohibited from taking public office [due to their criminal record] should not be represented in public spaces, streets or monuments", Mendoza told Perfil.
In the meantimes, some local government authorities seeking to rid themselves of references to Kirchner are taking things into their own hands.
The City Council of San Rafael in Mendoza resolved last Wednesday to remove the name of “Néstor Carlos Kirchner” from the local bus terminal, in place since the ex-president’s death. Kirchnerite Mayor Emir Félix might yet veto the initiative.
