Eduardo Duhalde is an Argentine politician and lawyer who served as the President of Argentina from 2002 to 2003. He was born in Lomas de Zamora and after his school level education, went to the University of Buenos Aires to study law. Initially, he was engaged in academics and worked as a professor of law at the National University of Lomas de Zamora but his political ambitions were clear as he simultaneously signed up for the Justicialist Party and took charge of the local branch of the party before long. His first political post was that of the mayor of Lomas de Zamora after he won the mayoral elections in 1973 but within three years he was expelled, like many others, following the commencement of the dictatorship. After the dictatorship ended, he returned to politics and entered the senate once again, before going on to regain his position as the mayor of Lomas de Zamora. Subsequently, he served as the vice president of Argentina and then as the Governor of Beunos Aires. In 2002, he became the interim President of Argentina and served for a period of roughly 16 months.
