Argentina: Where’s Cristina?
Remember when Hugo used to absent himself?
As of Thursday, it had been 37 days since she last spoke in public. And she hadn’t posted any messages to Twitter since Dec. 13, when she fired off a typical volley of 20 tweets.
That has been feeding speculation in Argentina about her health in the wake of surgery on her head in October, and questions about who is running the country.
Fernandez made her last public appearance on Dec. 10. Three days later, she made her last comments on Twitter criticizing a protest by police.
Her last official photograph was taken on Dec. 19 at a meeting held at an Islamic center.
Cristina’s scheduled to attend the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States on Jan. 28 in Cuba, and the Mercosur meeting on Jan. 31 in Venezuela.
If she doesn’t make it, Uruguayan president José “Pepe” Mujica won’t be able to hitch a plane ride to those events.
