You cannot complain

. Neither in 2013 nor in 2015 were you so armed,"

Máximo Kirchner

said with a laugh

- more words, less words - to

Sergio Massa on

the edge of the

closing of lists

last Saturday. The wink may be exaggerated, but it is eloquent. Eight years ago, the leader of the Renewal Front competed and defeated Kirchnerism and in the 2015 presidential elections he garnered 5 million votes. Now,

the head of Deputies will maintain

- if there are no surprises - the number of seats for the Province that he obtained in 2017 when he wanted to imprison the vice president and asked "to

ignore the violent people of La Cámpora


At this point it seems like a mere anecdote.

The leader of La Cámpora and Massa showed a pragmatism that allowed them to place themselves - with different volumes - among the "winners" in the official cast.

The organization of Cristina Kirchner's son could

secure seven deputies

and add one more seat in the Senate, in addition to the seat that

Anabel Fernández Sagasti

will surely renew


For almost a year, these former political enemies have built a trust that transcends the limits of Congress.

They sealed an alliance from which - for example - they lobbied to push

Santiago Cafiero out

of the Cabinet chief disguised as a candidacy that

Massa: Buenos Aires business and middle class in Deputies

Massa added three women leaders to the Buenos Aires national list with an almost certain ticket in the Lower House:

Marcela Passo, Mónica Litza and Micaela Morán


The fourth massista,

Jorge D'Onofrio

was in a relegated place but close enough to reach the Chamber in the next 4 years before any replacement.

Matías Tombolini

will have visibility in the campaign, but he was somewhat far behind, in fifth place on the Buenos Aires ballot.

The great triumph of Massa, however, is not in the National Congress but in one of its bastions: the

Buenos Aires Legislature


There, according to the accounts made by the FR, would add a legislator for the first section (Sofía Vannelli);

to the mayor of San Andrés de Giles, in the second;

two in the third (Nicolás Russo and Ayelén Rasquetti);

a senator for the fourth (Juan Martínez);

one for the fifth;

two deputies for the sixth and possibly one for the eighth.

They are more than the five benches that he defends.

Marcela Passo, the deputy close to Sergio Massa, the day she signed her new application in the Province.

In addition, a provincial senator will be added for the place that Agustina Propato,

Sergio Berni's

wife, will leave vacant

, who will now be a candidate for national deputy.

They would add eight legislators from the FR who have a mandate until 2023.

As for the Congress, the President of Deputies aspires to be able to have a block that responds to him among those who count the deputies of provincial governments.

It was only offside with the candidacy of

Cachi Martínez


Agustín Rossi's



Massa will insist on

tax relief packages, transformation of social plans into formal employment

and with the

focus on security


"We need more deputies to defend the working middle class," argue the FR shipowners.

La Cámpora: progress in the Province and the Interior

Interior Minister

Wado de Pedro

supervised with Massa the closure in several provinces such as Chubut, Entre Ríos, Misiones and Tierra del Fuego.

La Cámpora's harvest on the charts was overwhelming. Not only will he consolidate his power in the Buenos Aires Legislature. He also got two safe deputies on the Province list (

Constanza Alonso and Rodolfo Iparraguirre

) and one for the City (Lorena Pokoik).

ranks second on the Santa Fe governor

In Río Negro, in agreement with the Minister of Justice Martín Soria, they relegated Evita deputy

Ayelen Spósito

and secured the first place on the list for

If the FdT surprises in Entre Ríos, it could add another legislator.


Mabel Carrizo from


will seek to renew her bank on the list from the ballot sponsored by Lieutenant Governor

Osvaldo Jaldo


Anabel Fernández Sagasti, the La Cámpora senator who is renewing her seat.


Fernández Sagasti

might not be the only camper in the Senate.

If Peronism wins in La Pampa,

María Luz Alonso

would join


Gabriela Estévez's

candidacy for second senator 

will be practically testimonial. 

De Pedro

also imposed in Salta the undersecretary of Provinces of the Ministry of the Interior,

Emiliano Estrada

, in agreement with the governor

Gustavo Sáenz

, candidate for vice president of Massa in 2015. In the Executive there was annoyance, because the noisy exit of Rossi from the Ministry of Defense it covered what on paper was the formal incorporation of a governor to the armed forces of the Frente de Todos. In practice it was already inside.
