Jorge Macri took advantage of the cut to Kicillof to pressure for City funds


Highlights: Jorge Macri took advantage of the cut to Kicillof to pressure for City funds. The elimination of the Buenos Aires Fund narrows the Government's margin to not comply with the Court's ruling. In the Casa Rosada they reject a change of scenario. Javier Milei: "Nacho" tries to deny resources to Luis Caputo and Luis Torres. "He steals the resources of the provinces," says Ignacio Torres of Milei's private chats with Caputo.

They consider that the elimination of the Buenos Aires Fund narrows the Government's margin to not comply with the Court's ruling. In the Casa Rosada they reject a change of scenario.

In the midst of the escalation of conflicts between the Government and the provinces, and with Axel Kicillof as the new one targeted by Javier Milei after his fight with Ignacio Torres, Jorge Macri

took the opportunity to pressure for the return of the percentage of co-participation

that Alberto Fernández had cut to the City, in September 2020, and which led to the creation of the Fiscal Strengthening Fund now eliminated and the reason for another judicial dispute in this case between Buenos Aires and the Nation.

A representative of the PRO and one of the 10 leaders united in what was Together for Change, the Buenos Aires mayor signed the statement of that group in support of Torres in his fight with Milei although he distanced himself from the tone of the Chubut native and

seeks to move with balance

in his relationship with the President.

As soon as he took office, he maintained the claim for the co-participation funds that Horacio Rodríguez Larreta had initiated, while at the same time showing discursive harmony with the positions of the ruling party.

"The City has a proposal made to the Nation, which comes from the previous government, so that the co-participation is fulfilled.

That claim is presented to the President and the Minister of Economy

," said Jorge Macri this Monday, at the inauguration ceremony. of the school year in a school in Pompeii.

“We hope

it is completed quickly because we need those resources

to guarantee the best possible education, among other things,” the mayor advanced.

Judicial dispute and negotiations

According to the City's calculation, since the ruling of the Supreme Court in December 2022 that raised the co-participation to 2.95, the national government accumulated a

debt of $437 billion, which with interest would amount to $844 billion


Macri and Néstor Grindetti, Buenos Aires Chief of Staff, had taken the claim to the Minister of Economy, Luis Caputo, at the beginning of January, without the Government giving in.

There was also a meeting with Guillermo Francos - Minister of the Interior - and Jorge Macri

insisted on the issue before Milei himself

in a talk of an hour and a half in Rome, when they coincided with the canonization of Mama Antula in the Vatican.

To what extent does the elimination of the Buenos Aires Fund favor the scenario for the purpose of the Buenos Aires mayor?

“It could be a first step

,” they hinted at a certain expectation in the City.

“We have been in talks since the new government took office.

There is a recognition that this debt exists and its legitimacy, unlike Kirchnerism, but they said that there was no money.

Now that issue changes

,” they noted near Jorge Macri.

As Axel Kicillof pointed out in La Plata, the resources for the Fund were contemplated in the 2023 Budget, in force this year due to the extension due to Milei's decision not to send a project to Congress.

At the Casa Rosada they did not confirm whether the cut to the province of Buenos Aires will be followed by a benefit for the City.

In the Ministry of Economy

they rejected a change based on the decree

, beyond the intention of maintaining contacts with Buenos Aires officials on this issue.

“The dialogue is open with the head of Government.

If there is one thing he is right about, it is that the money belongs to each of the jurisdictions.

We will see how progress is made with what is currently at the judicial level

,” spokesman Manuel Adorni limited himself to saying during the press conference.
