In the ruling party they doubt the President's polling station and say that he will not calm the internal one


The Government has already contacted governors, piqueteros and trade unionists to discuss the electoral strategy of the Frente de Todos.

In the ruling party, they relativize the scope of the electoral table that the President agreed to convene this week.


It will not serve to institutionalize the Frente de Todos

or for Cristina and Alberto to reconcile

, but it can be an instance of dialogue to start ordering us," explained a member of the Cabinet who maintains a well-oiled link with all sectors of Peronism .

The composition of that ecumenical table is still unknown, but

as Clarín announced

, there will be presence of governors, delegates of the President, La Cámpora, the CGT and the social movements.

The Casa Rosada has already begun to convene all the sectors of the coalition to hold a first meeting.

The tentative date heard by some of the provincial leaders contacted by the Deputy Chief of Staff Juan Manuel Olmos is

next Saturday, February 11


Among Fernández's ministers who are involved in politics, there are

doubts about the advisability of holding a meeting with too many interlocutors

and promoted through the media.

“That's only going to last one day.

Trust and basic guidelines must be restored,” explained an official with his own game respected by La Cámpora and the President.

Very close to the President they are more enthusiastic and justified the breadth of the table.

"If representatives of each group do not go,

they will all kick

. Yes, we can make campaign decisions and it is correct that we all unify the message," explained one of the men who listens the most Fernández.

Some of the founders of the Frente de Todos emphasize that it is not clear if there will be

a "golden rule

" for the elections, as happened in 2019. In the elections that enthroned the Fernández family, it was established that

there would be no inmates in any district governed by Peronism



Jorge Capitanich

from Chaco asks to work on consensus candidacies - and he himself promotes his name to occupy the place at the top of the ballot - in Peronism there are many doubts about the design of a hypothetical internal one.

"And if there is more than one ballot in the provinces to elect deputies or senators, how would they cross over?" they wonder.

The equation could have the form of Y (with several lists for executive positions and one for legislative positions) or X (with several lists for executive positions, one for legislative positions, and several for provincial positions). 

Today in the ruling party there are more voices that suggest the need not to repeat the experience of 2021, when -only in the Province- the Frente de Todos

threw 51 ballots overboard


“Together for Change showed that a competitive internship can enhance the space,” said a mayor who in his district knew how to compete with La Cámpora.

The governors continue to differ from the national strategy.

Ricardo Quintela

from La Rioja

joined the batch of 15 governors who

decided to split the provincial elections

from the national ones.

Sergio Massa

, who insists that he will not be a candidate, had an active participation in the de-escalation of the inmate, which -after a year-end truce- intensified with the 


messages of Wado de Pedro against the President.

The Minister of Economy - who does not stop receiving governors in his office - was

a bridge between the Fernández family

, who in the last hours

reestablished their contact via Telegram


The camporista minister and main CFK delegate visited the vice president on Monday in the Senate hours before publishing a thread of tweets to try to calm the intern.

In his environment, however, they stressed that there was no contact between the President and - on paper - his political minister.

“They did not stop making off with

Juanchi Zabaleta


(Santiago) Cafiero


We made one and

almost sank the ship

, ”a camporista official boasted.

The road map to order the official discourse still generates doubts among the partners of Peronism.

“We cannot campaign with what we did in these 4 years.

We have to talk about the future

, ”says another member of the Cabinet.

That plan collides, for now, with the movements of Fernández, determined to promote his management.

Fernández only shares acts with three ministers: Gabriel Katopodis, of Public Works;

Santiago Maggiotti;

of Habitat;

and Victoria Tolosa Paz, from Social Development.

The first two have a good relationship with Fernández and were at the Buenos Aires FdT meeting in Merlo, although today they cannot be considered Albertistas.

The head of the Social Portfolio was not invited to Merlo, but she accompanied the President to an act that mixed management and politics with the mayor of Ezeiza Alejandro Granados.

The Albertista piquetero

Luis D'Elía

publicly nominated her to be

Fernández's vice candidate


"After Cristina said she was getting off, Alberto took the opportunity to recover some of the political centrality," reflected a minister consulted by this newspaper.

Among the most pragmatic referents of Peronism, La Cámpora and some Buenos Aires mayors, the question persists of which candidate could

retain Cristina Kirchner's votes

at the national level.

Above all, to guarantee a victory in the Province, the mother of all battles and a district without balloting.

Axel Kicillof has already shown that he can do it in the Province, where he intends to be re-elected.

The numbers of the polls that support his operation for re-election (and that until now seemed to have convinced his detractors), constitute the main argument of various leaders for the governor to go to the top of the national ballot and run from the bonaerense.


It is almost impossible to retain the governorship if we lose the presidential election

," they warn.
