The national deputy of the Civic Front and former intendant of the capital of Santiago del Estero Hugo "Lito" Infant was found today without a life at his address, at the age of 70.
The decease of the municipality of Santiago de Estero (governed for two terms between 2009 and 2014) would have been a cardiac arrest product, as suggested by the first versions of the diffused event by local means.
The body was found near 6:00 a.m. this Sunday in his home located in the "La Horqueta" private neighborhood, south of the capital of Santiago.
The news of death generated commotion in his province, which he was representing since 2019 with a bench in the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation, as head of the Front Civic blog that responds to the governor Gerardo Zamora.
In a radical cradle, Infant was a municipal employee and, as a result of his militancy, he held positions in the public service: he was a councilor, president of the Deliberative Council, an intendant until he summoned the National Congress in the hands of the governor.
During his ephemeral passage by the House of Representatives, he came to complete just one year, absent in more than half of the sessions, absenting 89 times, according to data published by the Deputies portal.
The last public appearance of Infant had been last Friday when he was part of the toast of the day of the UCR of Santiago of Estero.
Following his death, the current intendant of the capital santiagueña, Norma Fonts, decreed three days of mourning in the city.
