The official internal: the alliance for 'convenience' between Axel Kicillof and Wado de Pedro


The governor does not want to be a candidate for president and props up the minister to avoid the pressure of Máximo Kirchner, if Cristina does not change her mind. Mutual winks and the role of governors.

Although they are far from being friends and maintain subtle differences in political direction,

Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro and Axel Kicillof are aware that they need each other


They know that the future of both is connected and that they represent to each other the solution to their problems in the internal one that goes through the Frente de Todos for the candidacies.

And in the last hours the rapprochement was more exposed because they appeared together and exchanged messages and winks in an electoral key, and they begin to position themselves as the two main pure candidates of Kirchnerism. 

The Minister of the Interior, who has been moving for more than a year with the expectation of being an option for Cristina Kirchner, in the event that she maintains her position of not running, is not the favorite of La Cámpora or Máximo Kirchner.

Strictly speaking, with the numbers in hand, the deputy makes known his claim that it is the Buenos Aires governor who represents a pure K list in a STEP against the President.

Others maintain that

the vice president's son's obsession has to do with clearing the way for the province of Buenos Aires for someone who better represents his interests: Martín Insaurralde, from Lomé, Buenos Aires chief of staff, is one of them


Kicillof resists, talks about his continuity in the Province of Buenos Aires and is unperturbed by the versions.

Only a possible request from Cristina could make him change his plans.

Beyond his personal claims, he was always unconditional before the will of his political boss.

In a context in which Kirchnerism suffers from the lack of names that take off in the polls, this possibility is not remote.

Kicillof is, after all, the one who retains the highest percentage of Cristina's votes


"Axel Lanzado loses two or three points from what she has today," a consultant confides to this newspaper who, in any case, states that her departure from the ballot for governor could complicate her triumph in the district.

Another important aspect to take into account.


Kicillof does his part to push Pedro's Wado moves.

This week he added it to the inauguration of a hospital

in Lomas de Zamora and, in front of Máximo Kirchner, he praised the work of the Interior Minister.

That photo had been planned to clear up the rumors of tension that were revived when the leader of La Cámpora asked the governor "to raise the militancy to the places of decision."

Kicillof used that act to play in tandem with De Pedro, another that generates some suspicion in the ranks of the deputy because he also has a direct link with Cristina, who did not even resent the noise generated by his journey through Expoagro. 

"Wado has not stopped a day of walking throughout the interior of Argentina," Kicillof started

in a speech in which he was surprised to focus on the role of the minister. 

“When we were still in a pandemic, Wado de Pedro began to call each of the governors and governors to find out what works we needed.

He told us to think, not so much about the urgency, but about what work we needed to be able to transform the productive structure of each one of the provinces.

That is why what he did will surely contribute to the next 20 years of the development of our country”, he remarked.

And the auction was electoral.

"Wado: you give us the peace of mind that someone is thinking about Argentina in the long term," he highlighted, in what seemed like an attempt to show De Pedro as a reliable interlocutor for the governors in the face of what is to come. It's all a paradox because several of the Peronist leaders who could welcome a De Pedro candidacy do not hide their concern at the possibility that the chosen one is Kicillof.

Kicillof's support for the Minister of the Interior was so forceful that the Mercedino's communication team, which controls the Twitter account "La Remisería de la Rosada"(@La_remiseria) was in charge of compiling the phrases he dedicated to him: there were 9 mentions in a short speech.

The video was accompanied by a suggestive phrase: “Friend to be friend is a section of love that grows and grows.

No matter who likes it".

Close to De Pedro they avoided answering internal issues but they did highlight "the good coordination that exists with the province."

On Kicillof's side, they did not answer questions. 

 However, in the act there was retribution for the governor


De Pedro :

"Axel, as a citizen of the province, I want to tell you that since Felipe Solá's management I do not see a management so committed

to the needs of the people of Buenos Aires " .

The wink is not limited only to Kicillof but also includes a criticism.

He subtly exposes the eight years of Daniel Scioli's government, which made its way into the Buenos Aires PJ and did not have a Kirchnerist imprint.
