A baqueano of the political interns knows that the composition of the lists of candidates
leaves wounds and shows the future game
In coalitions, such as Together for Change and the Front of All, the weight of each of the sectors that compose them is expressed in these nominations.
Also, they anticipate battles to come.
Larreta knew how to
pass the rake
, but at every gaming table you always have to be with your guard up because, suddenly, luck can turn around. The mayor of Buenos Aires must feel satisfied: he took out chips that annoyed his long-term purposes and put one of his on the big table of the Province with Carrió, Jorge Macri, and, some venture, even the radical Posse. Larreta takes a risk and the PRO is stretched. In the City, in a time impregnable radical bastion, it is sheltered in the Buenos Aires vote, the fiercest anti-K, which is embroiled in that feeling with the Cordovan. But it is in Buenos Aires territory where
Larreta plays a large part of his future project with Santilli
The favorable forecasts for this bet have begun to be questioned. There are data, which they handle in the ruling party, of the
growth of Facundo Manes,
the freshest event so far, that are enthusing radicalism and putting a ceiling on the growth of Florencio Randazzo. With Manes and with the testimonial challenge in the City, the UCR is sending a message that it is willing to
in the opposition coalition. He had lost that role long before - the historic floor was touched by Leopoldo Moreau with 2.3% in 2003 - that Ernesto Sanz fought for the alliance with the PRO as a useful formula to defeat Scioli in 2015. And Macri, later , He sent them to the siding.
The interesting thing is that the radicals are telling Larreta that whatever fate of Manes they hope will be auspicious, they
will challenge him for the presidential candidacy
. The presentation in Capital has the same meaning, with more modest intentions, which also points to the alliance that Larreta has with the radicalism of Yacobitti, Angelici and Nosiglia, all sponsors of Lousteau.
In the ruling camp there is a certainty: whatever the result of the elections, which looks difficult, there will be a rethinking in the coalition. The environment of Alberto Fernández is excited and promotes greater resistance to the pressures of Kirchnerism: Juan Zabaleta would join the Government and Daniel Arroyo will be a candidate in the Province. The other casualty, Agustín Rossi in Defense, already has Daniel Scioli as a candidate, promoted by Cafiero. The ambassador in Brazil has long wanted to
return to the mud of domestic politics
but his prayers have not yet been answered. It is also true that the relationship between Fernández and Cristina has become very tense in this time.
The partial results of the government retract the vice president, who tries to ignore the economic, social and health situation,
as if she were an observer
of what is happening in the country.
These tensions will increase and will be expressed in the government.
And it is logical that this happens because, after November, we will enter the last stage of this political experience of which none of the central protagonists can evade their political responsibility.
