Máximo Kirchner will get on the brand new presidential plane with Sergio Massa to China this Sunday. However, if it depended on the head of La Cámpora, the economy minister would not be the presidential candidate of the ruling party. The son of Cristina Kirchner is convinced that the best candidate of Peronism is Axel Kicillof, but believes that the Vice President will not ask anything of the Buenos Aires president, who prefers to go for his reelection.
Deputy Kirchner believes that Kicillof has to realize only the "historic moment" that he has to live and that requires, he believes, that he puts his body to an uncomfortable campaign with triple-digit year-on-year inflation and with more poor than in 2019.
Kirchner and Kicillof were in the select group of 4 leaders who surrounded the Vice President on Thursday on the stage of Plaza de Mayo with Massa and Eduardo "Wado" de Pedro. The governor was to the right of the former president and the deputy to the left. Cristina unites and divides them.
The leader of La Cámpora believes that for the objective of retaining the Province the best possible candidate is that the best possible candidate goes on the most relevant ballot. "Axel does not realize that he has the same chances of being president as of being governor," said a leader who will be part of the national delegation in China. If Kicillof yields to pressure to go on the presidential ballot, incidentally, he will release the gubernatorial locker that Kirchner intervened in 2021 with the landing of Lomense Martín Insaurralde. Kicillof's chief adviser Carlos Bianco said this week that Kicillof will agree to run for president if the former president asks him to.
Sergio Massa and Malena Galmarini this Saturday at their home with Axel Kicillof.
In Buenos Aires and national Peronism, Monday's photo of Kirchner and Pedro with mayors was interpreted as part of the payment for a possible castling between the presidential minister and Kicillof. When the interior minister began building his candidate profile in 2021, his aides used to warn that his dream had always been the governorship. "Now 22 more provinces and the City have joined," they ironize. Anyway, in May, De Pedro only had one activity outside the Buenos Aires territory.
There are several who consider a gesture of "political myopia" the threat of the Buenos Aires president to split the provincial elections from the national ones. They argue that this decision would give Javier Milei the key to define the elections, if, for example, he does not decide to play in the provincial elections to harm Kicillof.
Cristina Kirchner's son ends his term as a deputy. There are several leaders who nominate him to occupy a more relevant place on the ballot, as a candidate for national senator for the Province, especially if the Vice President is not moved by the request of the militancy in the Plaza de Mayo who sang: "One more and let's not anymore."
The canillita and Buenos Aires senator Omar Plaini, an ally of Christianity, nominated him for any office. "Maximo Kirchner is a superlative cadre in a position to occupy any place," he told Radio Splendid on Friday.
Close to Cristina and Máximo Kirchner they do not close any doors. "For June 24 – the closing of lists – there is a long way to go. Máximo is the main owner of the space and always aims to build a powerful space from the electoral and political ", they affirm in the small table of Christianity.
For that, Kirchner also travels to China. La Cámpora will also be represented in the delegation by the deputy Paula Penacca, who has aspirations in the City, and by the head of ENARSA Agustín Geréz. In addition to the head of the Central Bank Miguel Pesce and the technical officials of Energy and Transportation and the head of the Lower House Cecilia Moreau, who answer to Massa, there will be Deputy Chief of Staff Juan Manuel Olmos, representative of the national PJ.
Before traveling to China, Massa shared an act with de Pedro in Mercedes, full of proselytizing winks, to inaugurate the section of the railway that connects the land of the Minister of the Interior with the gastronomic pole of Tomás Jofre. On Thursday night, after the act of CFK, the southern Conurbano was filled with posters with the name and image of the Minister of the Interior.
"We can make mistakes. We committed them, many. But have no doubt that we govern Argentina with our hearts in our hands and we think about Argentina with conviction and dreams for the future. We can have one place or the other. We have no concern about our place. In this way we work dreaming of the unity of our people, in the unity of our space, in the future of Argentina as a development project, "said the Minister of Economy.
De Pedro, before, scored 3 of CFK's 4 favorites. "Our generation, with Sergio, with Axel (Kicillof), we are going to rethink a new Argentina," he said. An official of La Cámpora interpreted that the candidates for President, Vice President and Governor will emerge from that shortlist. "Order is still a mystery," he said.
After that act with De Pedro, Massa added another political photo. He was shown with Kicillof at his home in the run-up to the trip to China. There was also his wife, Malena Galmarini, president of AYsA.
On Monday, the interior minister would visit the governor in La Plata, accompanied by AFA president Claudio Tapia, who joined the campaign against bullying that Pedro announced. Tapia comes from starring in a suggestive lunch with mayors.
De Pedro, meanwhile, made time to attend a plenary of the university youth of the Evita Movement in Florencio Varela, where he had attended last week to lead a plenary of the youth branch of La Cámpora. The minister took a photo with Emilio Pérsico and provincial deputy Patricia Cubría, wife of the head of Evita, who wants to compete against Fernando Espinoza in La Matanza.
The leaders of Evita who met this week with Cristina and Máximo Kirchner believe that the best way to mobilize disenchanted voters is with PASO, especially in the lower stretch of the ballot. That discussion is not settled. "They ask us not to be a butcher shop," they say. Several of these leaders comment between astonishment and uneasiness that the sons of several of their companions announce without shame that they will vote for Milei.
