With Macri ousted, the K say that they maintain the operative clamor for Cristina, but the tension grows over the candidacies


In the Frente de Todos they recognize that the decision of the former president does not stop the internal one. The main names in dance.

Cristina Kirchner

continues without reviewing her decision,

Alberto Fernández

insists on his re-election operation,

Sergio Massa

juggles between the economic program and his electoral future,

Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro

persists with the installation of his figure and

Daniel Scioli

bets that the disorder I finished positioning it again as in 2015.

The decision announced this Sunday by

Mauricio Macri

, who anticipated that he will not present himself as a presidential candidate in the elections next August, did not change the electoral scenario of the Frente de Todos for now,

crossed by a growing internal tension

that, to make matters worse, returned to to be exposed with the ex-president's announcement.

For something, the first reaction of the presidential entourage in Santo Domingo, before embarking on Manhattan, was to let it be known that the vice president should imitate Macri's example and leave electoral competition free in Peronism.

Kirchner's response came immediately: they asked Fernández for the umpteenth time to deactivate his re-election project, "

like Carlos Menem in the balloting"

of 2003, from which he gave up so as not to run into certain defeat against Néstor Kirchner.

Official sources from the various sectors of the Frente de Todos consulted by this newspaper highlighted this Monday that the announcement of the founder of the PRO does not change the plans of the government coalition at all.

"In fact,

we never measured him as a candidate, we never believed that he would run

," explained an official who works for the Casa Rosada and who knows the polling system used in official offices as an official.

What's more: in the hard core of Kirchnerism , Patricia Bullrich

has been seriously 

analyzed for a long time , even more than

Horacio Rodríguez Larreta


Perhaps for convenience: for the Government it is better to compete with the former Minister of Security, that is, with the hawks of the PRO.

The head of government, according to analysts, has more chances than his internal rival in the face of the general elections in October.

If Macri's definition clears the way and accelerates the internship between Rodríguez Larreta and Bullrich, the two main presidential contenders of the opposition coalition,

in the Frente de Todos it does nothing but expose once again the internal disorder


"Our problems are ours, not someone else's

," sources K. 

Operation outcry in Chaco

It was Cristina Kirchner's decision at the end of last year, when she announced that she would not run for any position, that changed the logic of the ruling party and

plunged it into an internal crisis greater than the one it was in


"At most, it distracts for a while,"

a consultant who works for both coalitions emphasizes to

Clarín .

In this context,

a sector of Kirchnerism insists on the need for the former President to review her decision


This Saturday, the outcry operation will move to Chaco:

Andrés "El Cuervo" Larroque

, one of the main promoters of that plan, will land in Resistencia to lead a plenary session of the militancy against "the ban" similar to the one that debuted in Avellaneda a few years ago. weekends.

Without Cristina Kirchner on the field

-in the vice environment, the signals about her next moves are confusing-

, the Ministers of the Interior (De Pedro) and the Economy (Massa) continue to be positioned as

the two leaders capable of occupying that place


What's more: now, in the environment of one of them, they are wondering, after Macri's announcement, if it will not be convenient to loosen up with the offensive against the President and for him to continue with his operation until he finishes resolving the road map of Kirchnerism.

"There are conflicting opinions"

, they now trust.

In public and in private, Massa insists that his work remains focused on the economy.

The minister was irritated by the "operations" -so he warned the President himself by phone last weekend- which, according to him, installed Albertismo to bury him electorally after the INDEC made official the inflation of February around the 6th, 6%

Massa was scheduled to leave this Tuesday night, at 11 p.m., for Washington to later join the presidential entourage that will meet with Joseph Biden this Wednesday.

In the camp of the former mayor of Tigre there are mixed feelings.

Beyond the troubles of inflation and the crisis of reserves, focal studies

show that part of society values ​​the effort of the minister


It is, paradoxically, the advice that Albertism recently landed in New York sends him: that he fulfill his management and not be a candidate. 

La Cámpora, the group led by Máximo Kirchner, is torn between Massa and De Pedro, without losing sight of the story against the "proscription". 

The organization is going through decisive hours.

With Kirchner at the helm, there are those who are still nominating

Axel Kicillof

for the Presidency to try to test the final landing in Buenos Aires territory.

The Minister of the Interior, meanwhile, opened new offices in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of San Telmo, and is dedicated full time to positioning his image while waiting for Cristina Kirchner to provide certainty about his future.

The other leader in the uncertain dance of names of the ruling party is Scioli


The ambassador in Brazil wants to compete in the PASO.

A goal of almost two months was set to try to settle and wait for the results of the surveys.

This Monday he was in Cañuelas and in Florencio Varela, last week he landed in Córdoba and at this time he was returning to the neighboring country.

"Daniel is going to wait to see what happens with Alberto and Cristina, but he is going to go to STEP. If Sergio (Massa) goes, even more so,"

they slipped around him.

The relationship between the two is lousy.

Almost the same as the relationship between Kirchnerism and the Casa Rosada:

there is no decision or announcement in the opposition that can change this scenario.
