From both sides they let it be known that

the conflict ended


The Minister of Economy Martín Guzmán will continue in his post,

although he has not been able to fire his subordinate

, the undersecretary of Electric Power, Federico Basualdo.

President Alberto Fernández backed Guzmán.

The Instituto Patria, in Basualdo


But although it seems that both "sides" seek to lower the foam on the conflict, this Tuesday from

Kirchnerism they came out to show that Basualdo continues with his activity as if nothing had happened


Hours ago, however, from Economy they said that Basualdo should leave his post sooner rather than later.

The way to make it clear was the

diffusion of a meeting of Basualdo

, and the Comptroller of the ENRE, the electricity regulator, Soledad Manin, with representatives of the Union of Light and Power.

The bottom line between the officials was the increase in rates.

While Guzmán sought to

reduce subsidies

with increases similar to inflation in order to remove fuel from the fiscal deficit, from the harshest Kirchnerism and La Cámpora they fought for

a minimum increase

, almost testimonial, so as not to affect the pockets of consumers in the election year .

Last Saturday a 9% increase was announced for Edenor and Edesur.

For now, that would be the only increase for the year.

Guzmán hoped to announce another in July to total 15% for the year. 

According to the statement from the meeting with Luz y Fuerza, the ENRE auditor explained that the agency is completing the verification of the execution of the first stage of the investment plan and electrical distribution infrastructure works in the AMBA,

"promoted by the Entity Regulator and the Undersecretariat of Electric Energy ", so that there are no doubts


"In this framework, the distributors executed more than 800 million pesos in the first quarter of the year, and

the second

stage has


with an investment commitment of 1,493 million pesos," they added.

The fact that Guzmán has the rank of minister and Basualdo of undersecretary does not mean anything in a government where the vice president sets the agenda.

In fact, Christianity has

already forced the departure of Guillermo Nielsen

from the YPF presidency, where a man from Máximo Kirchner, Pablo González, ended up.
