Amid the tensions in the PRO, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta sends signals for the Buenos Aires succession


A photo was taken of a space candidate after Jorge Macri pressured him not to support the radical Martín Lousteau. The differences with the cousin of the former president.

The tension within the PRO due to the succession of

Horacio Rodríguez Larreta

in the City continues to generate friction and friction in space.

On Tuesday, the Buenos Aires Minister of Government, Jorge Macri, added pressure to Larreta to begin to define a support and in an interview with Clarín he maintained that the head of Government assured him that "he is not going to support Lousteau" and that he will give a boost to a PRO candidate.

Larreta's reaction, which cooled his relationship with Jorge Macri after the photo he took with Patricia Bullrich, came a few hours after the definitions of the former president's cousin.

On Tuesday night he appeared with one of the pre-candidates for the succession of the City, the vice president of the Legislature Emmanuel Ferrario, who has already announced his intentions to go for the succession.

He is not the only one who scores in that race within the PRO.

To that list must be added the Minister of Health, Fernán Quirós, and the Minister of Education, Soledad Acuña.

Larreta, until now, gives air to all who want to fight for the succession and seeks to promote an internal Juntos to define who will stay with the City.

The conflict within the PRO is with the figure of Martín Lousteau, the radical senator who wants to be head of government and who is in good harmony with Larreta.

He has an office in Uspallata, the seat of the Buenos Aires Government, and has just taken a photo with the mayor on a tour of Mar del Plata that was highly questioned on the networks, but that the senator used as support.

This is the image in which both, together with the governor of Jujuy Gerardo Morales and the deputy Diego Santilli, pose as The Beatles on their album Abbey Road.

Larreta's decision to show up alongside Ferrario aims to send signals to the PRO's competitors and especially to Jorge Macri, who has the support of his cousin, former President Mauricio.

In the team of the head of government they took note of the meeting of Macri (the former president) with Patricia Bullrich in Cumelén.

Although they sought to tone it down, they know that the photo that circulated after the meeting in which Macri and Bullrich are embracing with their partners, contrasts with the meeting that the former president had with Larreta at the end of the year: not a single image was released and there was a secrecy about what they talked about.

Larreta, in public, maintains that he will let all the PRO candidates tour the City and go to a great STEP in which the possible successor is defined.

But the truth is if the four scored in the space were in the same internship against Lousteau, the radical's chances would grow.

Mauricio Macri received Patricia Bullrich in Villa La Angostura and they talked about the PASO in Together for Change.

That is why they are still looking for a way to solve that obstacle.

With a party internal within the PRO or with a definition of the Buenos Aires head of government.

For now, Larreta does not give any indication of how this inconvenience will be solved.

In the City, moreover, the date of the elections for head of government has not yet been decided.

Although everything indicates that they would go with the generals, no one completely rules out that they can be doubled.

There is already precedent: in 2015, Macri brought forward the Buenos Aires elections that Larreta won so that they would serve as a boost to his presidential candidacy.
