Alberto Fernández

will not be the only one who will have to reorganize his cabinet with the closing of lists with the almost certain pre-candidacies of Defense Minister

Agustín Rossi


Santa Fe

and with the eventual return of the head of Social Development

Daniel Arroyo

to Congress on behalf of the Province.

Axel Kicillof would

also “lose” two bishops: the head of the Health Portfolio

Daniel Gollan

, who would second

Victoria Tolosa Paz

on the national ballot, and the Minister of Government Teresa García, who would lead the ballot of senators for the first electoral section . 

If Gollan is finally confirmed as a candidate, he will be replaced by Vice Minister

Nicolás Kreplak

, leader of La Cámpora.

The organization led by

Máximo Kirchner

would add more legislators to Congress (it pushes candidates in Santa Fe, Ciudad, Córdoba, Jujuy and Río Negro, among other districts).

With Andrés Larroque he already occupies a ministry of the Buenos Aires administration.

The probable candidacy of

Teresa García

would serve to order the Buenos Aires Senate where the Frente de Todos is preparing to snatch the majority from Juntos por el Cambio.

Kicillof does not have its own robust armed force in the legislature, where it depends on the men and women of the mayors and Cristina and Máximo Kirchner.

García knows the cloth and would remain with the

presidency of the ruling bloc

. She held a seat in the Buenos Aires upper chamber until 2019. She was also a national deputy. "Team that is not touched," had suggested the Buenos Aires chief of staff Carlos Bianco at the beginning of the week, in accordance with Kicillof's desire not to disarm his Cabinet.

Tolosa Paz

, the president of the National Council for the Coordination of Social Policies, who has reserved first place on the ballot at the request of the President, first passed through Olivos, where Fernández remained throughout the day.

In the afternoon, he met with

Santiago Cafiero

at the Casa Rosada.

In the ruling party, everything is secretive and no one confirms whether the candidates have already begun to sign the official forms.

Official sources assure that this step would take place this Saturday at the Casa Rosada or at the headquarters of the PJ on Matheu Street.

From Olivos and via Twitter, the President sent signals from some of his representatives on the national lists.

He posted a photo with

Eduardo “Bali” Bucca

, who reached the Upper House on the same ballot that had Florencio Randazzo as senator in 2017 and met with the president on Thursday. If his candidacy and Gollan's are confirmed, there will be two doctors to defend the official vaccination plan in the campaign. "We agree on the need to generate sanitary and productive conditions to rebuild the economy and put Argentina on its feet," tweeted the former mayor of Bolívar, who from the Lower House and the Lavagnist bloc accompanied almost all the projects of the Frente de Todos. Bucca is the second deputy from the Pan-Peronist opposition to join the ruling party in Congress. The Mendoza José Luis Ramón had already made the jump. 

The mayors of the Buenos Aires PJ will occupy the main places in the national ballot for the Province. They will be largely

the deputies of the President in the Lower House

, as published by



Mariano Cascallares, from Almirante Brown; Alberto Descalzo

, from Ituzaingo and

Leonardo Nardini

, from Malvinas Argentinas, have good chances of occupying a place on the charts. Juan Zabaleta, of Hurlingham, could replace Arroyo in Social Development. Ariel Sujarchuk, from Escobar, but closer to the vice president, is also in the running to fill one of the 15 “entry-level” spots. Daniel Menéndez -from Barrios de Pie now associated with Evita, who are closer to the Rosada than to the Senate- also have a chance to enter.

Sergio Massa

has three seats reserved and, almost certainly, Marcela Passos will occupy one of the main ones.

For Kirchnerism, it could also renew Fernanda Vallejos and the unionist Hugo Yasky, from the CTA.

The representatives of the CGT also claim their places.

The next hours will be of tension.

For the deputies for the third electoral section - bastion of Peronism - the main seats will be Federico Otermín, current president of the Buenos Aires lower house, and Facundo Tignanelli, the side of Máximo Kirchner.

The mayor of Esteban Echeverría, Fernando Gray, after his fight with Máximo Kirchner, will lose the seat of his delegate Fabiana Bertino, but he would not leave the official armed force. 

Cristina Kirchner

, meanwhile, followed the names of her candidates in the Senate and in the company of Interior Minister Wado de Pedro.

Sergio Massa

does the same in Deputies. In the ruling party, they do not rule out the surprise factor that the vice president likes so much and that paved the arrival of

Alberto Fernández

to the Casa Rosada in 2019. Sources of the ruling party suggested that in the last hours the president of the Senate and the head of the Chamber Lower pressure once more with the possibility that Cafiero leads the Buenos Aires ballot. The President resists and pushes his candidates for the first places in the lists of the main urban centers of the country. "

It is false, the candidacies are almost closed

"they insisted near the leader of the Frente Renovador.
