Resumen

TOWNSEND-BELL, Erica E.. Uruguay 2018: A Year of Mixed Signals and Open Questions. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.2, pp.367-390. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2019000200367.

Uruguay faced significant headwinds in 2018. The Frente Amplio is confronting a slowing economy, and its most challenging election yet. Overall, economic growth is positive, but reduced from the previous year; inflation, unemployment, and the deficit are above target rates. After the loss of a deputy in 2016, the Frente returned to a strong legislative efficiency rate in 2018. However, the party remains vexed by President Tabaré Vázquez's ever lower approval rating, which dipped to a nadir of 30% by year's end. The party's challenges are extensive. Economic stagnation, low presidential approval ratings, a slim parliamentary majority, and disaffected voters fuse to create substantial unpredictability for the 2019 elections and the country's future political configuration.

Palabras clave : Uruguay; Frente Amplio; Latin America; Economic Slowdown; Pink Tide.
