Another intern between Patricia Bullrich and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta: now for the use of Tasers


The head of the PRO accused the head of government of not making the decision to use them. In the City they respond that the issue is locked by the Nation.

A new internship broke out within the PRO between the two main presidential candidates of the space, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and Patricia Bullrich.

This time the focus was on security and the use of tasers.

The president of the PRO and former Minister of Security strongly questioned the head of government and assured that the stun guns were available to be used and that Larreta did not "make the decision" to start using them.

"There is a court ruling that authorizes the use of Tasers. Instead of asking the government for so much permission, which always tells you no on purpose, I would tell Horacio: make the decision," Bullrich said in an interview.

Lately, the former minister has been in tension with the head of government, accusing him of being "lukewarm" when it comes to making decisions.

But from the City they went out to cross Bullrich and denied that the problem was Larreta's lack of decision.

He maintains that the problem is that the Government does not allow them to enter the country despite the fact that the City has already bought them.

One of the first to cross Bullrich was the chief of staff, Felipe Miguel, who had already had run-ins with the former minister when she threatened to break his face during the presentation of Mauricio Macri's book "For What".

"CABA has already decided to use the tasers. Indeed, we bought them more than two years ago but the National Government has stopped the import since then. It is not a matter of deciding to use them but of being able to import them," wrote the Buenos Aires chief of staff on Twitter.

And then he added: "The obstacle to the import of taser pistols is in the Justice. Two weeks ago there was, before a CABA amparo, a court ruling ordering ANMAC to define the situation. I repeat: it is not a matter to decide use them but to be able to import them. As soon as CABA has the tasers, it will use them."

It was not the only voice in the City that came out to cross Bullrich.

The General Secretary of the City, Fernando Straface, said: "Let's clarify the confusion. The Court never ruled on the Tasers. CABA obtained a favorable sentence from a federal judge to import the Tasers on 2/8/23. The National Government appealed the 9/2/23 and suspended the authorization. Without a final ruling, no government can buy Taser."

The Taser episode reflects the electoral tensions between Larreta and Bullrich.

Both seek to be PRO candidates for president and for now they cannot define how this internship will be solved.

Bullrich is usually the toughest with the head of government whom she accuses of being soft due to his moderate style.

The Taser debate was back on the scene after the murder last week of a police officer.

A man took her gun from her in her subway and shot her when the officer tried to intervene in a violent situation.

The City Police, in addition, is in a complex moment after the Buenos Aires Minister of Security and Justice, Marcelo D'Alessandro, took leave for the alleged leaked chats.
