Politics

The internal products of the provinces are merged into the national product, and then the national budget is decided, including what percentage of it is given to each province. Provinces are free to choose their own utilization of the assigned percentage of the national product.


Each province has also its own government, with a governor, a senate and a deputy chamber. It is not uncommon though, for the national government to intervene in a province under internal instability or after a corruption scandal, designating an intervenor to replace the local government until the situation is normalized.


Many provinces have had, or still have, governments controlled by a single family. This is the case of the Rodriguez Saá[1] in San Luis Province, the Saadi[2] in Catamarca Province, and many others, often involved in corruption or criminal scandals that are never solved, such as the murder of María Soledad Case in Catamarca.
