With the most intense disputes of Together for Change this time concentrated in the PRO, the radicalism seeks to
greater relevance in the discussion
for the lists and the weight in the decisions of the coalition. After settling in the ballot boxes their interns in the main districts and even with the bids that are maintained within the party, the UCR referents define the strategy with a focus on the province of Buenos Aires: the different sectors agree that the
electoral offer in that territory will be key
to negotiate places with partners or fight in the primaries.
The talk that Facundo Manes will give this Wednesday at the National Committee generated
enthusiasm in the party and support from the actors
of Together for Change. Even without confirming if he will be a candidate, his presence - and his brother Gastón was conventionally elected by the UCR in March - will try to be used to "appear" in the fight for leadership in the PRO. "I am very happy that the UCR incorporates Manes and
I hope he accepts being a candidate,
" Elisa Carrió tweeted this Sunday.
Less than a month and a half after the closing of the lists, the radicalism faces
two inmates at the same time
: its own supporter and the bidding with the allies.
In the competition for the Provincial Committee, if there was a coincidence in the speeches and the proposals, it was in order
to stand in a different way
in the discussions with the PRO.
The lack of definition of María Eugenia Vidal - and at this point the perception almost taken as a fact that she will not run in Buenos Aires - strengthened that aspiration, although the
lack of a strong figure
worked for the UCR as an obstacle to moving forward.

The ruling party led by Maximiliano Abad, winner in the March internal by a tight margin against the sector referenced in
betting that this time Manes will give way
to electoral politics and will be a candidate.
Alfredo Cornejo, head of the UCR, came out to promote as a letter to the neuroscientist that stretches the determination.
“Facundo is a
figure of renewal, fresh, who was not linked to the provincial or national government
That should be the profile ”, argued the former president of Mendoza and current deputy, and proposed Manes to head the list.
If confirmed, one of the campaign axes of the Frente de Todos would be annulled, focused on the efforts of Mauricio Macri and Vidal, according to that point of view.
Not only Cornejo encourages this nomination: also Gerardo Morales, Mario Negri and
, who had been involved in the Buenos Aires intern to support Abad. In turn, it could count on the
support of a sector of the PRO
for which it would function as a way out of the conflict over the possible candidacy of Diego Santilli. For example, for
, the most emphatic in the rejection of the Buenos Aires deputy chief's landing.
"In most of the strong provinces in which we can win, we are going to lead, but
to balance internal power we must fight in Buenos Aires,
" acknowledged one of the referents on the discussion with the PRO.
He was referring to the conditions in principle more favorable for the UCR in Mendoza (Cornejo are at the top of the list for senators and Julio Cobos for Deputies), Córdoba (possibly with Negri) and Santa Fe (José Corral and Mario Barletta).
Even so, the preponderance of the PRO in the city and province of Buenos Aires, with the underlying dispute between Macri and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta for the leadership of that space,
captures the attention and centrality
of Juntos por el Cambio.
With a contrasting gaze on Manes, without the expectation that this time he will decide to be a candidate, Posse
prepares the guarantees and the assembly of the lists to compete in the primaries
in tandem with Emilio Monzó and leaders of Peronism.
The mayor of San Isidro was willing to leave the municipality to head the ballot.
"We are going to build a plural list, of very strong belonging to Together for Change,
absolutely from Buenos Aires
with a national project for the province," he told
In the March intern, he was supported by Martín Lousteau, although Posse distances himself from the proximity of the national senator with Rodríguez Larreta.
For instance, he rejects the "dispatch" of City leaders, in reference to Santilli.
