Argentine Peronist party chooses new leadership

Argentina's Peronist party, regarded as a possible winner of next month's elections, chose Italo Argentino Luder as its presidential candidate. The former provisional president and senator is considered a moderate nationalist in the Peronist movement and has published books on law and politics. The elections will return Argentina to democracy after almost eight years of military rule.

Former President Maria Estela Martinez de Peron was named president of the party. She is the widow of party founder Juan Peron and has lived in Spain since she was ousted by a military coup in 1976.
