Former President Maria Estela Peron on Tuesday made a surprise visit to her homeland. "I wanted to be in Argentina and here I am," she told reporters at Ezeiza International Airport. Peron's arrival from Spain, where she has lived since 1981, comes at the beginning of what promises to be a bitter political campaign that will culminate in national elections next May. Peron, 57, has stayed out of politics since she was overthrown in 1976 by the military and held under house arrest for five years.
