ROCCA RIVAROLA, Dolores. Relationships and definitions on belonging within government-actively supporting ensembles during Kirchner and Lula's administrations: main arguments. Temas debates (En línea) [online]. 2013, n.26, pp.39-75. ISSN 1853-984X.

Based on a conceptual frame that diagnoses a scenario of fluctuating political identities and transformed political parties, this paper presents some arguments about the ways organizations, networks and groups defined their belonging to a government supporting ensemble “oficialismo” in Lula's Brazil (2002-2006) and Néstor Kirchner's Argentina (2003-2007), the internal dynamics, the sort of relationships they established with other actors within the oficialismo, and how they bonded with the government. I argue that analyzing these two active and organized government supporting ensembles by using the terms party in office or partisan coalition would be to forcefully reduce the heterogeneous variety of organizations and groups that composed the organized political orbit of both leaders. Therefore, the paper proposes an approach through the concept of oficialismo. I have opted not to study these ensembles from a institutionalist perspective of how government coalitions function. Not only because such an approach would prove to be inadequate to understand the Brazilian and Argentinian political representation contexts in those years. But also because the thesis is guided by another purpose -it wishes to comprehend in depth, through empirical work and based on the testimony of their own actors, the prime features of two government supporting ensembles. Three government supporting sectors are defined in both cases: social organizations, national labor federations and what I have called the "partisan space".

Palabras clave : Kirchner; Lula; Government; Identities; Parties.
