Civic Front For Santiago

The Civic Front for Santiago (Spanish: Frente Cívico por Santiago) is a provincial political electoral front in Santiago del Estero Province, Argentina. It operates as a bloc in Congress.

The Civic Front is effectively a coalition of members of both the Radical Civic Union (UCR) and the Justicialist Party with some socialists. Most of those under the Civic Front banner are supporters of the Front for Victory of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Néstor Kirchner.

At the legislative elections of 23 October 2005 the party won three of the 127 elected deputies (out of 257). The province's governor, Gerardo Zamora (UCR) was elected on the Civic Front ticket at the same election. In 2007 the Front won all four positions for national deputy in the Province and two out of three Senators.

Famous quotes containing the words civic and/or front:

    But look what we have built ... low-income projects that become worse centers of delinquency, vandalism and general social hopelessness than the slums they were supposed to replace.... Cultural centers that are unable to support a good bookstore. Civic centers that are avoided by everyone but bums.... Promenades that go from no place to nowhere and have no promenaders. Expressways that eviscerate great cities. This is not the rebuilding of cities. This is the sacking of cities.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    Here, in front of the summer hotel
    the beach waits like an altar.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
