Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has received medical clearance from doctors to return to work.
A month ago Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner underwent surgery to remove a brain clot on her brain.
A government spokesman, Alfredo Scoccimarro, said the results from scans the president had on Friday had been satisfactory.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, 60, is expected to resume her official duties on Monday.
“On Monday there will be a medical re-evaluation to determine the pace at which she can resume her daily tasks,” said Alfredo Scoccimarro.

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner won’t be allowed to fly for at least another 30 days, and she’ll undergo further tests on December 9.
The Argentine president had surgery on October 8 to remove blood that had pooled on the surface of her brain after she fell and knocked her head.
While Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has been receiving treatment, her allies have suffered heavy losses in mid-term elections that reduced her majority in congress, ending any speculation that she may try to amend the constitution to allow her to run for a third term in office.

Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner will undergo surgery on Tuesday to treat bleeding on her brain, doctors have said.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, 60, was earlier ordered to rest for a month after doctors discovered the subdural hematoma.
The subdural hematoma was diagnosed as she was undergoing tests for another condition on Saturday.
This means Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner will have to suspend campaigning for congressional elections.
The break from campaigning is considered awkward for the president as some opinion polls have suggested the government could lose control of Congress in the poll on October 27.
Medical experts say recovering from this type of surgery is a long process, and her lay-off is now likely to be longer than a month.

The president’s spokesman, Alfredo Scoccimarro, had issued a statement on Sunday saying her doctors had carried out a brain scan in August after a previously undisclosed trauma – thought to be caused by a fall.
They found nothing untoward, but on Saturday, she went to hospital for checks for an irregular heartbeat and also complained of headaches.
A further scan revealed the subdural hematoma – bleeding between the brain and the skull.
The hospital treating her said on Monday she had experienced a slight loss of muscular strength in her left arm the day before.
Doctors said she needed surgery to drain the subdural hematoma.
President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was first elected in 2007 and then returned to power by a comfortable majority in 2011.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s husband, former President Nestor Kirchner, died after a heart attack in 2010.
