The Partido Republicano (Eng. Republican Party) was a major political party in Argentina. It was the only party with the right ideology in Argentina, and was holding enough members (over 200) to make it the first largest party in the country. The Partido Republicano was a member of the Universal Party of the Right.
Today the party is down to only 2 members.
The Partido Republicano was founded by United Kingdom immigrants as the Partido Nacionalista Argentino/Argentinian Nationalist Party back in BETA. hSeldon took over the party and changed its name to Partido Republicano Argentino.
Later, Templario reformed the party, creating the actual logo and bases and the Partido Republicano name. However, Templario had to left the game, so Jose Miguel, with only 15 days of life was called by Templario to take the role of party president. Jose Miguel changed the party's ideologies from Far-Right to Center-Right.
Pedro Alejandro Pereyra won the party elections in July and was re-elected in August, during this period the PR moderated more its position in politics and continued growing, however, the Progressive Left became the second party, bringing an end to the former democrat-republican bipartisan.
After the second period of Pedro, Fedegen won the presidency two times, returning to a more conservative point of view in the party, but continuing with the center-right politics. The party grew in activity during these presidencies.
Also, between Jose Miguel's and Fedegen's presidencies, the PR merged with some members of the Far-Right Argentinian Nationalist Party, increasing the number of far-right members of the PR and giving more variety to the party.
November of 2008 was a very difficult period for the party,, a relatively new member to the party, who came from the Progressive Left claiming that his former party's ideals weren't similar to his own, won the party elections. The party then suffered an internal crisis, with a party president that allied with far-right politicians to win elections, a division between party members, polarization between centrists and extremists.
But the problems increased with December's elections. Ameri didn't want Jose Miguel to win, because he believed that it would mean the "personalization" of PR in a small group of people (Jose Miguel, Fedegen, Pedro Alejandro Pereyra), so he tried to make a paramilitary group, formed by him, a centrist member called Payta and a far-right member called Yanka. The last one left the party because he felt bad there, Payta told everything to the other members of the party.
Ameri then joined Matipunx (Moderate-Far-Right) to run for the elections, Ameri also told Payta that he was supporting Matipunx because he believed that if Matipunx won, Jose Miguel and Fedegen would be politically dead and Matipunx wouldn't have sufficient time for his presidency so Ameri would become the hero of the PR.
Ameri's plans never gave result, Payta told Jose Miguel about Ameri's plans, then Jose Miguel and the other two candidates: Matipunx and, made a pact to not allow Ameri continue growing politically and avoid giving him power, granting the party's safety as a political and democratic organization.
Jose Miguel won the elections, creating the Universal Party of the Right along with PRB and PDV's party presidents. The party's forum was changed.
Irenfrea was the first party president (not counting) that wasn't one of the oldest generations of Republicans, because Templario, Jose Miguel, Pedro Alejandro Pereyra and Fedegen had been members since the first two months of the party. Later, he became Country President, but renounced because he had problems in RL. During his party presidency, the party grew to become the country's first party and obtain the government.
