Member of Argentina's Justicialist Nationalist Movement, a supporter of Juan Perón, or an adherent of his populist and nationalist policies. Perón's poorly defined political philosophy embraced elements of both left- and right-wing ideology, combining a commitment to the redistribution of wealth with authoritarian nationalism and disregard for civil rights. After his death in 1974, the Justicialist movement was weakened by factionalism, but it continued to play an important role in Argentine politics and had adherents elsewhere. See alsoCarlos Menem.
