In mirror to the dilemma in the national fight, the Frente de Todos of Buenos Aires must also decide if it goes to a PASO or manages to install a consensus candidate. Meanwhile, there are several leaders already launched into the fight for the head of Government walking the streets of the City.
This week, the plane in which the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, left for China was also boarded by the main reference of La Cámpora, Máximo Kirchner, and Juan Manuel Olmos, deputy chief of Cabinet and key shipowner of Buenos Aires Peronism. There are expectations that on the return they will land with the directives for an electoral agreement in the district.
Last March, the national deputy Leandro Santoro and the Minister of Tourism, Matías Lammens, -the last two pre-candidates of the ruling party in the City- appeared together in what many interpreted as a nod to the possibility of alliance.
With the addition that they included in the postcard the Christian lawyer Graciana Peñafort, director of legal affairs of the Senate. Peñafort, a well-known militant in the space led by the Vice President, never ran for elective office.
This sector is committed to a formula of unity. "We believe that the best thing is to have synthesized internal differences to be able to question the other sectors," Santoro said in a dialogue with this newspaper. In that case, they imagine a very proactive campaign on the problems not solved in the City, such as rents and the lack of infrastructure in specific sectors.
Meanwhile the national senator Mariano Recalde does not make any public move, beyond the dissemination of his book on the 15 years of Macrismo in the Buenos Aires territory,
In his environment they remember that every time it was necessary for him to present himself as a candidate he did it, in all formats. "He is actively working with all spaces, but it is clear that the definitions of the candidacies in the City will be finalized once the national strategy is confirmed," they pointed out close to him.
The Patria Grande sector of Juan Grabois, for its part, insists on the alternative of disputing a PASO. Like what he proclaims at the national level, they are not willing to accompany any candidate who is not pure Cristina. For example, against Recalde they would not face, but reject the alternative that Santoro is the only candidate.
The analysis they make is that putting "moderate" candidates and "the least similar to Kirchnerism", as they describe Santoro who has radical extraction, it was already proven that they did not do well.
They promote the humorist Pedro Rosemblat, who became known for his character of "El Cadete", on the radio El Destape, the medium of journalist Roberto Navarro.
In turn, the former Minister of Women, Gender and Diversity, Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta, and lawyer of Milagro Sala, is also running as head of the Buenos Aires government for "Movemos", backed by ATE and the CTA Capital of Daniel Catalano.
Of the 12 national deputies for the City whose terms expire this year, there are four from the Frente de Todos. Among them are Eduardo Valdés -the "friend" of both Cristina Kirchner and Alberto Fernández-; the camporista Paula Penacca, and Itaí Hagman de Grabois. They are joined by the also Christian Mara Brawer.
The opposition map
In Together for Change it is expected that this week it will be defined -through poll- who will be the candidate of the PRO: Jorge Macri or Fernán Quiros. Whoever is elected will have to face the radical Martin Lousteau in the internal one. Ricardo López Murphy and Graciela Ocaña are also listed.
The libertarian Javier Milei takes the current Buenos Aires legislator and broker, Ramiro Marra, as his candidate for head of the Buenos Aires government, which will be made official in the next few hours. In turn, from the environment of the leader of
