Is the figure of the First Lady eliminated in Argentina? 

The role of the First Lady in the region is a complex issue. Governments have adopted diverse positions on the scope of this figure, generally occupied by the president's wife, although sometimes also by sisters or daughters of the presidents. The absence of specific regulations gives rise to a wide range of actions for this role.
