What is Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s Net Worth?
Cristina Kirchner is an Argentinian Politician who has a net worth of $115 million. From 2007 to 2015, she served as the President of Argentina and the former First Lady to President Néstor Kirchner.
Cristina was entangled in numerous corruption scandals during her two-term in office as President. However, she was also accused of treason, obstruction of justice, and fraud immediately after her tenure was over.
Kirchner assumed the position of the Vice President of Argentina in 2019.
On the 19th of February 1953, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was delivered in La Plata, Argentina. She was singlehandedly trained by a single mother Ofelia, a Peronist union leader. Her mother later got married to a bus driver and anti-Peronist name Eduardo, when Cristina was only two years old.
Kirchner attended Popular Mercantil and Misericordia schools when she was in her teenage age, She later obtained a degree in psychology from the National University of La Plata but later switched to study law.
While still in college, Kirchner was opportune to meet Néstor, her husband who assisted her in pursuit of political ambitions. Soon after, she got involved in justicialism and liberalism.
Kirchner married Néstor after receiving her undergraduate degree, and they migrated to Patagonia together. She began her career in the provincial legislature there, registering in 1980 at the Tribunal Superior de Justicia of Santa Cruz.
Kirchner then served as a legal representative for the Justicialist Party before joining the Comodoro Rivadavia’s chamber of appeals. She also became a member of her husband’s legal team.
Kirchner was chosen as a Santa Cruz Province deputy in 1989. A few years later, her husband was appointed governor. Kirchner won the election for national senator in 1995, and after a contentious term in office, she was expelled from Congress in 1997.
Subsequently, in the next midterm elections, she campaigned for national deputy, and then, in 2001, she ran for senator. In 2003, Kirchner took up the role of First Lady after her husband was elected President of Argentina.
President of Argentina
In 2007, after her husband decided not to run for a second term, Kirchner decided to run for president on the Front for Victory ticket. She eventually won and eventually came into power in a nation that was dealing with a number of issues, such as inflation, a weak energy infrastructure, issues with public safety, and agriculture industry demonstrations.
Kirchner, who had a poor approval rating during her first term yet campaigned again in 2011, a year after the death of her husband, who had been very influential throughout her administration, was a strong supporter of hers. The largest margin of victory for a presidential candidate in Argentina since 1983 went to her in her reelection.
Kirchner’s two tenures as president were comparatively difficult. She ran afoul of the agricultural community right away, suggested a taxing scheme that was turned down, and sacked the head of the Central Bank.
She nationalized the energy company YPF as long as the price of public services was still being subsidized.
Kirchner also aimed to continue the work of her late husband by managing a number of human rights laws, such as the ongoing legal proceedings against military officers implicated in the Dirty War.
Her establishment of currency controls during her second tenure contributed to the nation’s sovereign default in 2014 and the subsequent plunge into economic collapse. The next year, Kirchner resigned from her position.
Despite all of her corruption-related issues, Kirchner was chosen to serve as vice president of Argentina in 2019 after Alberto Fernández was elected as the country’s new president. Her resignation from the Senate followed.
Kirchner was the subject of an assassination attempt in September 2022 when a man attempted to shoot her in the face; finally, his weapon did not discharge, and he was detained.
Legal Charges and Corruption Scandals
Numerous corruption scandals including, among other wrongdoings, extortion, corporate harassment, and money laundering characterized Kirchner’s presidency.
Following her resignation as president, Kirchner was charged with a number of crimes, including selling dollar futures at a discount that she later proved to be false. Kirchner was charged with treason in late 2017, but since he was a senator at the time, he was not subject to punishment.
Kirchner was charged with obstruction of justice again the following year for the terrorist attack on the AMIA in 1994.
In addition to the other counts against her, Kirchner was charged with corruption in connection with claims that her administration had collected payments in exchange for public works contracts.
Kirchner had two children, Florencia and Maximo, with her husband Néstor. Néstor suffered a heart attack and passed away in October 2010.
She is also the author of “Sinceramente,” a book that was published in 2019. Kirchner is also the founder of the Patria Institute called the Thinktank.
