ALMARAZ, María Gabriela. Ambición política por la reelección en las provincias argentinas. Revista SAAP [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1853-1970.
The literature on political careers and political ambition states that structural chacateristics of the political system create the political opportunities that shape the ambition and behavior of politicians. In Argentina little has been said about the creation of political opportunities through constitucional reforms, especially in the subnational arena. By modifying the rules on reelection of the provincial executive, the latter creates new opportunities for the political careers of the gobernadores. Given the importance of the governorship in the Argentine political system, this article focuses on the factors that explain the subnational diversity regarding constitutional reforms and types of reelection of governor.
