In the midst of the operative outcry, Cristina Kirchner organized an intimate dinner with former presidents and leaders K


He shared a "dense meeting" in San Telmo after the act on Tuesday with former presidents of the region. Máximo Kirchner joined the meeting. The details of the meeting.


reserved dinner

was in the San Telmo neighborhood, just 400 meters from the Casa Rosada.

It is a place on the ground floor of Calle Defensa, in the same building where Senator

Mariano Recalde

has his offices and where the exclusive restaurant

La Panadería de Pablo

used to work .

The president of the Buenos Aires PJ intends to inaugurate a sort of Peronist bunker or basic unit there and it already functions as the venue for exclusive meetings in La Cámpora.

In this glazed room with a garden, 

Cristina Kirchner dined with the former presidents

 of the region who participate in the Puebla Group, which brings together former progressive leaders from the region, and with whom she had shared an exhibition at the CCK minutes before.

None of the former heads of State and Government who accompanied her at the closing of the day "

Popular will and democracy. From the military party to the judicial party

", within the framework of the III World Forum for Human Rights, wanted to miss the agape, which lasted almost two hours. 

The former judge

Baltasar Garzón

, the former president of the Spanish government,

José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero


and the former presidents of Colombia,

Ernesto Samper



Rafael Correa


Bolivia, Evo Morales;

and the head of the Puebla Group and former Chilean candidate 

Marco Enríquez-Ominami


Also present was the former Uruguayan president

José Mujica

and his wife, former senator and vice president

Lucía Topolansky


"Pepe's thing was quite a gesture, because he is not part of the Puebla Group and

he came only for her

," said a regular CFK interlocutor.

The detail that caught the attention of several of those present was that the

Vice President sat next to her

- at the main table together with the Latin American leaders - the Minister of the Interior

Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro

, who

adds miles, acts and gestures as potential Hard Kirchner


if the former president is not at the top of the ballot.

This seemed to be one more in that sense.

The meeting was joined, in addition to De Pedro, by the main references of Christianity who were sitting in the first rows of the CCK: the Treasury attorney

Carlos Zannini

, the governor

Axel Kicillof


the host


and Defense Minister

Jorge Taiana, among others.

The Buenos Aires Minister of Development for the


Andrés Larroque

also participated , one of those who most pushes the chances that the Vice President will revise her decision not to be a candidate.


Eduardo Valdés

, who acted as moderator in the CCK, was from the party.

Máximo Kirchner

was also among the guests.

The deputy and head of La Cámpora had not been present at the meeting led by his mother in the CCK.

The former president of the ruling block thus completed

two meetings on the same day with the Minister of the Interior and with the governor

, with whom he had shared an act in Lomas de Zamora that served to silence the internal noises, after the deputy's claim to the president from Buenos Aires in Avellaneda on Saturday of last week.

There, curiously, De Pedro was one of the speakers at the inauguration of the Health Center in the suburban area and seemed to

close the door on Daniel Scioli

"Dinner was nothing more than a

relaxed meeting

," they minimized close to the former president.

Among the diners they also pointed out that there were no political definitions of tenor.

"The important thing had already been said in the CCK", deepened one of them.

Another of the relevant presences at the dinner was that of the almost unknown camporista leader Franco Metaza, director of International Relations of the Senate and one of those in charge of coordinating CFK's international agenda.

Before dinner, in the imposing CCK auditorium, the Vice President renewed her criticism of the judiciary, the media, and the opposition;

she remembered with nostalgia the first 12 years of Kirchner's support and spoke to the young people.


If they are going to put me in jail, I don't care

. I care that we build a democratic state again," said the former president almost at the end of her speech.

Despite the fact that they were there because of Cristina Kirchner, Correa, Garzón, Samper and Morales mentioned

Alberto Fernández

who was inaugurating a section of a route in Chaco at the same time.

"They see it as a

primus inter pares

," explained leaders close to the President.

On one of the occasions in which he was evoked, the Argentine head of state

was not even applauded and there were even isolated whistles

The President had led a meeting on Monday at the Casa Rosada with the leaders of the Puebla Group.

Correa even backed Fernández amid

diplomatic tension with Ecuador

and Guillermo Lasso's criticism of his successor. 

Samper, who was the only one who had been received alone by the President in the previous one, had his reward after the praise he gave to Máximo Kirchner's group.

"Some of us would like to have this enthusiasm in our homes at this point in life.

I am going to take a group from La Cámpora to help me organize them

," said the Colombian in the CCK moments after the militants shouted "

Cristina President


The organization invited him to give a talk at a local party in the Capital.

This Thursday the former Colombian head of state will visit the Malvinas Museum. 

The Vice President, meanwhile, received

Pabel Muñoz

, the elected mayor of Quito with the Citizen Revolution ticket, Correa's force, in the Senate on Wednesday afternoon.

"In February he obtained a

great victory in the mayor's office after years of political persecution

in Ecuador," CFK said via Twitter.

Some of the San Telmo diners are still excited that the former president emulates the Ecuadorian mayor.
