Alberto Fernández travels to Chaco and avoids meeting Cristina Kirchner in the Puebla Group


The President chose to maintain his visit to Governor Capitanich and will not be at the "Popular Will and Democracy" conference that he organized together with regional leaders to support the vice president and denounce "Lawfare" against him.

Alberto Fernández

will not be present this Tuesday at the "Popular Will and Democracy" meeting, a day he organized with other regional leaders to denounce the lawfare against Vice President

Cristina Kirchner

and offer her support after the conviction for the National Highway case that, if if it remains firm, it will prevent him from holding public office.

The President, as confirmed by official sources,

will travel to Chaco after noon and will not be able to be part of an event that "was organized at his request

. "

The curious thing is that in December, when it was initially planned, before it was postponed due to the positive Covid condition that Cristina suffered, the president was going to be in charge of the opening.

In a panel in which there were almost no changes, the closure was also maintained: the speaker will be the vice president, after the interventions of former presidents Ernesto Samper (Colombia), José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero (Spain), Rafael Correa (Ecuador) , Evo Morales (Bolivia), the Spanish jurist Baltasar Garzón and the Chilean leader Marco Enríquez-Ominami, founder like Fernández of the Puebla Group.

At the opening, where the President was scheduled to speak in December, there was an inclusion that symbolizes the profile that Kirchnerism wants to give to the meeting: ultra-Christian senator Oscar Parrilli from Neuquén will speak, who will speak after Samper, another founding partner.

The suspicions regarding the absence of Fernández, who agreed to meet hours before with leaders of the Puebla Group (between this afternoon and early Tuesday morning he would see them at Casa Rosada), are part of the climate of extreme tension facing the Front of Everyone, especially since the Ks left the door open to a possible breakup.

At Casa Rosada

they deny that Fernández's lack of compliance obeys a request from Cristina to the members of the Puebla Group so that he is not from the game

and they emphasize that he must comply with the commitment to visit Capitanich in Chaco that was scheduled for last week and that it had to be postponed due to the medical recommendation, due to the herniated disc that forced him to rest at Quinta de Olivos.

"He is going to receive the Puebla Group at Casa Rosada and in the afternoon he travels to Chaco," said a close collaborator of Fernández, who assured that in any case "his participation in the afternoon summit was never planned."

In Casa Rosada, in the offices of the communication team headed by spokesperson Gabriela Cerruti, they explained that the President's focus is on the III World Forum on Human Rights organized by the International Center for the Promotion of Human Rights of the UNESCO, in which leaders of the Puebla Group will also come together and which will take place in Buenos Aires from Monday to Thursday, the date on which Argentina commemorates Remembrance Day 47 years after the last military coup.

"The President is going to be at the most important human rights meeting in the world, in which there are some 15,000 registered from different countries and with government representation," they highlighted, in what was intended to be a contrast to the day organized by the

Puebla Group

, where today leaders who are not in power are registered.

"For Alberto, it had a different function when everyone was on the plain. Now the goal is in Celac (the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) and Unasur," they added.

All in all, Fernández will reappear almost parallel to Cristina.

Capitanich awaits you at 7:30 p.m. in Resistencia

to enable the work on the National Route 11 highway. Cristina, meanwhile, will be the fifth and last speaker at the closing panel of the Puebla Group, which will start at 6:30 p.m. Therefore, unless there are last-minute changes, at Casa Rosada they must adjust the tour based on what happens at the Kirchner Cultural Center.
