The internal one in United Republicans continues: Justice ruled in favor of García Moritán in a dispute against López Murphy

The Justice ruled against a series of presentations that had been filed by the former Minister of Economy, Ricardo Lopez Murphy, to the detriment of the sector of United Republicans that responds to Roberto García Moritán.

"The Judicial Branch of the Nation resolved a series of legal issues that crossed the internal of the liberal party United Republicans (RU), of special relevance for the partisan elections that will happen next Sunday, June 4," reported the spokesmen of the Buenos Aires legislator.

Among the issues that the Justice left without effect are the requests that Lopez Murphy had made for the nullity of two party conventions, the blocking of more than 10 candidacies and the approval of files of more than 800 members.

The deputy and the legislator are at odds within the party they are part of, which in turn is part of Together for Change, after Lopez Murphy decided, without consultation according to Garcia Moritan's sector, to run for head of government. They also denounce that he tried to align the party behind the candidacy of Patricia Bullrich.

Days ago, the discussion erupted strongly in United Republicans. The reason: from one wing they rushed to warn that Lopez Murphy had lowered his candidacy for head of government, but he himself came out to ratify it: he said he will compete outside the party and will try to prevent Garcia Moritan, who has already run for the same position, from running.

Javier Milei denounces offensive against his campaign

Presidential candidate Javier Milei published a series of tweets on Monday in which he said his candidacy faces an attack from the "political and economic establishment" that includes "sinister speculations."

"In recent weeks various sources have confirmed what we already knew: there is a concerted decision among the political and economic establishment to try to stop the advance of our space," starts the deputy of La Libertad Avanza.

According to the economist, the campaign includes "television channels that 24/7 are dedicated to misrepresenting" their "positions to scare the population. Unknown essayists who suddenly swarm by all means with sinister lucubrations about my private life."

Carlos Bianco: "Axel continues to do what he has to do: manage and gather the votes for the election"

Kicillof "is making a historic management," Bianco said.

The chief adviser of the Buenos Aires government, Carlos Bianco, said that Governor Axel Kicillof "continues to do what he has to do: manage and gather the votes for the election" while the Frente de Todos (FdT) defines the best strategy and chooses the candidates for the October elections.

In statements to Radio Perfil, the official said that "Axel never analyzed this as an individual project or a personal whim" and pointed out that "he is governor and is a natural candidate for re-election because he is doing a historic management and is the one who measures the most in the polls."

"But we are part of a political front and a collective process, so what that front defines will be done under the leadership of Cristina Kirchner. Axel continues to do what he has to do: manage and gather the votes for the election," Bianco argued.

Martín Lousteau continues campaigning in the City

The pre-candidate for Head of Government of the City, Martín Lousteau, met on Monday with a group of residents of Caballito, with whom he talked about the security situation and the problems of the neighborhood within the framework of his electoral campaign.

Lousteau was asked about his proposals to confront the pickets and explained that his plan includes "sanctioning a new contraventional code, as was done in Jujuy and Mendoza and we will apply the criminal law to those who damage public property or commit a violent act.

"We must put an end to the culture of picket, of appropriation of public space and the cultural habit of anything goes to replace it with a culture of coexistence," said the radical senator.

Luis Juez: "Despite the money that Córdoba puts, we are going to shit on votes"

The pre-candidate for governor of Together for Change in Córdoba, Luis Juez, warned on Monday about the large expenditure of money that the ruling party is allocating to the electoral campaign, but assured that in any case the opposition will win in the elections.

"We recovered two very important places in the south of the province of Córdoba that were in the hands of Peronism. When Peronism governs, the ruling parties have a monstrous distribution of resources. It is an obscenity impossible to sustain," the Cordoba senator said in an interview on CNN Radio.

"I have never seen such a waste of money in a campaign. With the difficulties we have in health, education and with retirees, it is still an indecent proposal (...) Despite the money, we are going to shit them to votes. Ours goes the other way," he added.

"We want the Peronist candidate to be defined once and for all. I think the best thing is that there is a big STEP within the Frente de Todos," said one of the general secretaries of the CGT in an interview with Radio Futurock.

"The only one who could be the only candidate is Cristina, but I think that today the healthiest thing is an intern. Cristina's decision has already been made, she is not going to be a candidate. But he is right, beyond the candidates we need a government program, "added the Teamsters unionist.

El embajador en Brasil, Daniel Scioli, ratificó este lunes su precandidatura presidencial, en medio de la interna caliente del Frente de Todos y tras el adelanto de Clarín sobre la sospecha de un grupo de intendentes del PJ sobre su postulación y la falta de avales.

"I'm not looking for a position to negotiate, I don't know what," he said in a dialogue with FM Delta. And he explained that he has endorsements at the provincial and national level.

Scioli said that he has been working with the Minister of Social Development, Victoria Tolosa Paz, his eventual pre-candidate for governor of the Province in his electoral arm.

"If there is something I gave is testimony of responsibility in each of the places where I have had to compete. They know that if he won the PASO I am going to the meeting point of all sectors, of our political space and of undecided independent citizens, who do not want the path of dollarization or dynamite everything, but based on what has been built to continue building a future for the country, "said the ambassador.

From the campaign team of the former deputy from Santa Fe, they confirmed that the launch will be through a video that will be disseminated through the leader's social networks around 19:30 p.m.

"When Alberto (Fernández) decided not to be a candidate, I began to visualize the possibility of being able to be one. Because as chief of staff, as long as there was a possibility that the president would run for re-election, it was not appropriate for me to make a move in that direction," Rossi explained in a radio interview Sunday.
