More pressure K against Daniel Scioli: now they want the governors not to give him their lists to compete in the PASO


Highlights: Argentina's presidential candidates are working against the clock on the assembly of their lists. Daniel Scioli has already secured his own leaders in "90 percent" of the province of Buenos Aires. The Chaco considered a single candidacy "possible" but doubts about whether it can "fulfill the perspective of integrating everyone" "We are going to accelerate the PASO," says the Buenos Aires ambassador to Lula da Silva, "Regardless of who their (Kirchner's) is"

The ambassador in Brazil says that he has already covered '90%' of the province of Buenos Aires with his own candidates and trusts in his relationship with the governors to avoid the blockade of Kirchnerism, which seeks to complicate it in the Interior.

A pro-government governor who insistently asks to remain anonymous and, due to the suspicion that exists in the Frente de Todos, that no details be given of the region to which his province belongs, that last week he received a message from a reliable interlocutor: he anticipated that the idea of Máximo Kirchner, that each candidate assemble their own lists in the province of Buenos Aires, With the aim of discouraging internal competition, move to the whole country.

That is, Daniel Scioli and the rest of the pre-candidates for president must have their own electoral schemes. "That does not help us, I want (the ballots of legislators) to hang from each president, we must add the votes of all and expand," the president reasons to Clarín, who admits that he gave an ambiguous answer to gain time and avoid reprisals.

The request, according to the polls made by this newspaper, was transmitted to at least three other governors, but in Kirchnerism they admit that there could be more. In fact, in the campaign team of Wado de Pedro they relieve the support – for now not explicit – of around 14 presidents. "Almost everyone who always meets in the CFI (Federal Investment Council)," they specify.

There, precisely, they will meet next week to try to advance in a common position in the face of the closure of lists. The appointment was scheduled for June 12, two days before the deadline for the registration of electoral alliances, but was brought forward without a formal explanation. Even the Chaco Jorge Capitanich warned that "it could be advanced even more." So much haste generates different interpretations.

Scioli, for the time being, has already initiated contacts with the governors. Although his campaign collaborators deny it, this newspaper was able to learn of two presidents with whom he addressed the issue. His team is not worried and is convinced that it will not prosper. "He has a good, long-standing relationship with most. And besides, the governors do not want a mess, in almost all of them they split and only deputies and senators are elected, "says a Sciolista operator.

"There are three different strategies (for the PASO, the general elections and an eventual runoff) and it is important to understand the need for a federal approach," Capitanich said in a dialogue with C5N.

The Chaco considered a single candidacy "possible" but warned that doubts about whether it can "fulfill the perspective of integrating everyone."

The assembly of the lists, a key issue

As this newspaper said, Scioli and Agustín Rossi, who launched on Monday, are working against the clock in the assembly of lists throughout the country. In the case of the Buenos Aires ambassador, although he would prefer to have the mayors' ballot available, he has already secured his own leaders in "90 percent" of the province's districts. Even in those where they govern mayors who integrated the sciolismo in the past, as the case of Almirante Brown, in charge of Mariano Cascallares. This Monday there was a summit with referents of the first and third electoral section where it was passed in clean who will be the shipowners in the most populous districts.

There are still certainties in some not minor: La Matanza, for example, where Scioli awaits a definition of Fernando Espinoza. "They get along very well, Daniel does not want to hurry," they justify.

Something similar happens in the interior of the country: his intention is not to move forward and bets on a gentlemen's agreement with the governors. "Daniel respects the territorial logic of each province and does not want to arm until they define them," they said from his team.

The ambassador, who returned from Brazil on Tuesday night after accompanying Alberto Fernández to the meeting with Lula da Silva, asked to accelerate the assembly so that there is no doubt that he is not going to get off. "We are going to the PASO regardless of who their candidate (for the K's) is," they say close to the governor.

The team, which is made up of former Buenos Aires cabinet chief Alberto Perez, former ministers Oscar Cuartango, Eduardo Aparicio, Nora de Lucia, and Carlos Gianella, and some officials, such as the current director of the National Bank, Martin Ferre, Rodolfo Manino Iriart (Argentine Post Office) and Pablo Pernicone (Nation Services), were surprised by the calls they received in recent days. "We did not pass the ambulance yet and several wounded have already appeared who want to help," they graph.
