For four hours, the leaders of the main opposition coalition met in Palermo. The management of Sergio Massa, the main focus of the questions. Mauricio Macri was not there.


national table of Together for Change

met this afternoon in Palermo, in a meeting that lasted for more than four hours and from which debates arose around the

economic, institutional and security situation of the country

, in addition to the design of the space electoral strategy for this year's elections.

Authorities from all the parties that make up the coalition participated in the summit, a total of 23 people, but, as


anticipated , the former president of the Nation Mauricio Macri, who is still on vacation in Villa La Angostura, where he works with his own meeting schedule.

Even without being present, a good part of the Macrista discourse of recent days prevailed.

In line with what the former president declared in La Pampa on Saturday, the statement released by the National Board of Together for Change pointed harshly against the Government for "leaving a situation worse than that of 2015 and an armed bomb to the Argentine people".

Specifically, alluding directly to the management of Sergio Massa, they declared "against the use of financial instruments in pesos, adjusted in dollars with interest rates impossible to pay, or in dollars at usurious rates. With this, the government national does nothing more than speculate with leaving a time bomb for the next government".

Patricia Bullrich, Gerardo Morales, Miguel Ángel Pichetto, Maximiliano Ferraro, Horacio Rodriguez Larreta, Gustavo Valdez, Rodolfo Suárez, Luis Naidenoff, Humberto Schiavoni, Alfredo Cornejo, Martin Lousteau, Cristian Ritondo, Juan Manuel López were present at the meeting in La Escondida de Palermo. , Mario Negri, Maricel Etchecoin Moro, Ramón Puerta, Federico Angelini, Laura Machado, María Eugenia Vidal, Ernesto Sanz, Ricardo López Murphy, Sergio Abrevaya and Alberto Asseff.

The economic diagnosis, central in the talk

Before the meeting it was known that the

agenda was going to revolve around four axes

, divided into blocks, which were agreed upon by the PRO, the UCR, the Civic Coalition and the Republican Peronism.

Of all of them, the most transcendent arose from the analysis made by the economists of each space.

For the Civic Coalition was Matías Surt, for radicalism, Eduardo Levy Yeyati, for the PRO, Luciano Laspina and Hernán Lacunza, and for republican Peronism, Juan Carlos Sánchez Arnau.

During a period of the talk, as reconstructed by


Laspina, from the PRO, had a brief meeting with Gerardo Morales, from the UCR, over how to face a future economic solution.

In the communiqué that the members of JxC agreed to publish, they pointed out "the public indebtedness of the government of Alberto Fernández, which had a record increase."

And it was highlighted that this generated "a financing crisis in pesos that had its epicenter in June 2022."

"Since then, the Central Bank was forced to buy public debt for the equivalent of 2.3% of GDP, circumventing the limits on financing to the Treasury established by its Organic Charter. For its part, the National Treasury began to execute successive exchanges of debt that disguise the lack of genuine financing, in order to avoid a new default or a greater monetization of the public debt.Despite the denial of the Government, this has placed the country in a delicate scenario of financial fragility that increases the risk of a chaotic exit. In short, a situation that, far from solving the problems, irresponsibly tries to shift its impact to the day after the elections," the leaders said in the text released.

Tension between the PRO and the UCR for Mendoza

Perhaps the most critical moment of the debate occurred when from the Radical Civic Union there was a consensual position when going out to repudiate the attempt of Omar de Marchi, a former Macrista leader today related to Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, to break Mendoza's change and compete in the PASO outside.

Governor Rodolfo Suárez, his possible successor Alfredo Cornejo, Morales and Martín Lousteau were from the radicalismo who asked the PRO for explanations for that attempt by De Marchi.

Both Larreta and Patricia Bullrich, president of the PRO, promised to maintain unity in that province, one of the three that currently governs Together for Change.

There was another space linked to Mendoza, related to the delivery of land to Mapuches that the Government recently signed.

"We repudiate the arbitrary handover, by the National State, of lands to alleged Mapuches, who are not native to Argentine territory, and we ratify that this decision will be rendered null and void by a next government of Together for Change. Within this framework we stand in solidarity with the people of Mendoza," they said.

Another conflict on the horizon exists in Neuquén, where Rolando Figueroa, the former lieutenant governor of the MPN, broke with the provincial government and is shaping up to fight for the governorship, sponsored by the PRO, especially by Mauricio Macri.

This candidacy brings anger to radicalism and the Civic Coalition, which supports Pablo Cervi in ​​the general elections on April 16.

They accuse Figueroa, who is also a national deputy, of having given a quorum to the Frente de Todos in votes in Congress in recent times.

One of the few leaders who spoke in public was Maximiliano Ferraro, of the Civic Coalition.

"For the CC it was a very good meeting of work, climate and debate that met the objectives. For us it was important to address the economic aspects, the situation of JxC in the provinces and the programmatic agreement," said the person who coordinated the summit.
