It’s fair to say Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner would not be elected if politics was a dance competition after her recent performance at a political rally in Buenos Aires.

Mrs Kirchner started busting shapes only reserved for inebriated wedding celebrations or in front of the mirror listening to guilty pleasures – not in front of a huge crowd.


Mrs Kirchner repeatedly made an open finger salute, a gesture which is synonymous to her political movement.

The jovial dance moves were in celebration of Daniel Scioli, the chosen successor of Mrs Kirchner’s Victory Front party.

Mr Scioli, however, did not celebrate too early and chose not participate in the dancing. He is currently leading the polls ahead of the first rounds of the presidential elections later this month.

Monday's dancing is not the first time Mrs Kirchner has been let loose on stage; watch the clip below from last year.
