In the middle of the official intern due to the increase in rates and the intention of Martín Guzmán to run to Federico Basualdo, an official who responds to Cristina Kirchner, the Minister of Economy suffers a new focus of pressure K with the request for the replacement of the IFE, in full second wave of coronavirus.
It was the Minister of Development of the Buenos Aires Community, Andrés "Cuervo" Larroque, who made the claim for the return of the official family assistance plan, implemented in 2020.
The provincial minister considered "essential to continue a policy such as the Emergency Family Income (IFE)", although he clarified that these aid should be reconverted "into policies so that they do not receive any type of questioning."
The decision not to restore the Emergency Family Income is one of the flags that Guzmán maintains firm, with the purpose of trying to reduce the high fiscal deficit, in a year in which, unlike in the past, almost all economic activity is in functioning.
It was President Alberto Fernández himself who ruled out the return of the IFE.
"I do not plan for the IFE to return for now because the economy is working. In industries there is a low risk of contagion thanks to the protocols," said the president in April, although he clarified that he does not lose sight of "that the situation is very serious. for many people".
However, the demand for more social assistance grows week by week, as the precarious economic situation deteriorates further with the advance of the second wave of the pandemic.
In fact, social movements that are part of the Government also question the speed of the Executive to appease the crisis, warn about the fall of trades, lack of food, claim places of power in the Frente de Todos and demand the return of the IFE.
At the time, the IFE -which was paid in three installments of $ 10,000- covered 9 million people
He affirmed today that the objective of the social aid policies implemented by the provincial government in the context of a pandemic is to "establish a level of dignity and end, at least, destitution" in the district.
"We have to establish a level of dignity and end, at least, with homelessness," Larroque said Monday in statements to Radio Provincia.
The internal one by electrical energy
Guzmán has experienced a strong internal in recent days due to his decision to run to the undersecretary of Electric Energy, Federico Basualdo, within the framework of the adjustment of the rates of that service of 9%.
Despite the fact that on Friday from the Ministry of Economy they had spread that the minister had asked him to resign, Basualdo remains in office with the support of Kirchnerism.
This same Monday, the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillof, made public his support for Basualdo and rejected a further increase in the electricity tariff.
"Federico Basualdo is an excellent official," said the provincial president in statements to El Uncover radio.
"Edenor and Edesur have an impact on the suburbs. If there is talk of an increase it cannot exceed 9%. Beyond the rumors, achieving an increase of less than 2 figures is important," added Cristina Kirchner's former Minister of Economy.
That statement collides with Guzmán's intention that there be a new adjustment in the electricity service before the end of the year.
