"Two challenges have dominated Latin American politic in the twentieth century.The one is the struggle to overcome persistent poverty and economic underdevelopment and second is the effort to create and consolidate democratic forms of government. In many cases, this transitional period was completed in open and so called "free elections" as well as an unexpected freedom of press and party organizing. Still, visible poverty, inequality an corruption are core of the problems for majority of Latin American countries that are undergoing the process of democratization."
