After the tensions, how was the private talk between Alberto Fernández and Sergio Massa to calm the inmate


The President and the Minister of Economy took advantage of the trip to Mendoza to clarify positions and clear the internal. The impact of Malena Galmarini's phrase.

When Malena Galmarini came out to publicly admit Sergio Massa

's anger

at the "political operations" that "come from the Casa Rosada," she did not know that hours later the Economy Minister would get on the plane with Alberto Fernández.

Those who have known the dynamics of this couple for decades assure that it is not usual for them to review their agendas for the day in a family environment and consider the version "absolutely credible. 

It is that Galmarini's harsh statements had reverberated in the two camps of the ruling party, partly because they came to whiten a fight that until then had only manifested itself off the record.

All in all, the media raid that the head of AySA carried out this Wednesday for World Water Day forced a talk between Alberto F. and Massa that served to decompress tensions after messages and crossed accusations and that the Government closed ranks in defense of the exchange of bonds of the Anses and other official organizations for bills in pesos. 

The President took a first step towards a reunion with Massa when he picked him up by helicopter at Casa Rosada.

He could have gone directly from Quinta de Olivos to Aeroparque and waited for him on the plane he used to go to Mendoza, but when the Tigrense confirmed that he would join after the meeting with bankers and businessmen at the Palacio de Hacienda, he decided to change the course. Route.

Thus, Fernández waited for him at the heliport and together they continued on their way.

Publicly, in the act, they were in tune and the President made an effort to praise the Transportation policy, one of the portfolios that Massa has led with his troops since he took office in 2019.

Although the economy was not addressed, Massa enjoyed the scene because it sounded like a claim from his team (he was accompanied by the minister Diego Giuliano and the president of Trenes Argentinos, Martín Marinucci) at a time when the reproaches he received from the Front de Todos and that, as Galmarini explained, for the Tigrense they arose from the presidential environment, they had made him explode with fury on his return from Panama. 

Massa, who, like Fernández, manages the timing of the media and journalists very fluently, warned that the criticisms that multiplied after the February inflation index was known were generated from Balcarce 50. This despite the fact that the only

voices of alert they contributed the kirchnerismo.

"Sergio's message was clear. If they play silly internity putting the economy at risk, he will answer," an unquestionable source from the minister's environment confided to Clarín.

From Casa Rosada, official sources assured that the President's proposal "was the same as he always says: that he does not send anyone to operate or testify," and that he conveyed "that he does not know where journalists get the things that are said." against Massa and his economic management.

In this sense, there were no major complaints: although the relationship is far from being that of extreme trust that led the Tigrense to return to Kirchnerism at the hands of Fernández, they know that there is no room for more fights and they agreed to look "forward".

The climate of the talk, as this newspaper was able to learn from different interlocutors on both sides,

was "sincere" and much "calmer"

than the tone of the telephone call on Sunday, which did not end on the best terms.

So much so that, as Clarín recounted,

Massa did not get to consult the President for the details of Edesur's intervention.

"They have known each other for many years, they are not going to fight for two or three offs, but they had things to talk about," explained one of the sources. 

Then they talked about management.

The unemployment data stood out, which fell to 6.3% and was later exchanged in pesos, and the impact that the measure could have not only on the markets but also on the Anses Guarantee Fund.

Massa, who had already prepared the draft of the DNU that was signed by Alberto and the rest of the ministers, was confident that the measure would have a positive impact due to the level of support from the banks and because he said he was convinced that it would It will allow us to have a tool to order the markets. 

"They returned together in the afternoon and finished rushing the signature of the ministers so that the DNU would come out quickly," they said from the Government.
