Carlos Saúl Menem (July 2, 1930 – February 14, 2021) was an Argentine politician and writer. He was the President of Argentina from July 8, 1989 to December 10, 1999.[1] From 1973 to 1976 and again from 1983 to 1989, Menem was Governor of La Rioja.

After he moved to Chile, Argentina tried to extradite him. In 2005, he became Senator for La Rioja.

In 2003, he ran for president again and narrowly won the first round of the election. However he dropped out of the race after seeing that Néstor Kirchner would beat him in the second round.

On 15 December 2020, he was hospitalized in Buenos Aires for a urinary tract infection.[2][3][4] On 24 December, he suffered from kidney failure and put in a coma.[5][6] Menem died on 14 February 2021 from problems caused by the infection, aged 90.[7]
