The Triumvirate started its functions on October 8, 1812 with Antonio Álvarez Jonte, Juan José Paso and Nicolás Rodríguez Peña as its members, after a small revolution product of the return of José de San Martín and other patriots from Europe, that forced the dissolution of the previous Triumvirate, and the creation of a new one.

  • Nicolás Rodriguez Peña (172 for - 12 against)
  • Antonio Álvarez Jonte (147 for - 35 against)
  • Juan José Paso (96 for - 87 against)
