Why Javier Milei will speak at night: the unusual Chicana to annoy the "caste"

2024-02-29T22:44:04.360Z

Highlights: President Javier Milei will deliver his speech before the Legislative Assembly at night. The change would alter a usual routine of Interior legislators, who travel to their provinces on the weekend. Milei had already shown signs of his obsession with differentiating himself from the caste when he assumed his mandate. "I hope they bring posters or get offended and leave their seats," evaluated a collaborator of the President, hours before the presentation. "The disregard for the Legislative Branch feeds back into the Government," says a government source.


It will be this Friday, at the opening of legislative sessions. His obsessive fight against the political class.


"

And...a little bit to ruin your weekend too. For the deputies and some of those in here

."

While he rolls his eyes to an undefined place, as if to highlight the "in here", an official reveals to

Clarín

one of the reasons

that led President

Javier Milei

to deliver his

speech before the Legislative Assembly at night

.

He says it like he's enjoying it.

It's Thursday afternoon and, we have to give the official credit, several employees greet each other in the hallways of Casa Rosada wishing each other

"good weekend!"

.

Don't you work on Fridays?

This year, the opening of ordinary sessions, always scheduled for March 1, fell precisely on the last business day of the week.

Typically, presidents give their speech in Congress between late morning and noon.

Milei changed

.

This change would alter a usual routine of Interior legislators, who travel to their provinces on the weekend (Friday included).

As this newspaper already reported, part of the modification of the protocol is in line with the core of the L (ibertarian) story: make everything different from the political class, "break the status quo."

Also, official sources assure, the schedule can help to have

a larger television audience

.

The collateral damage?

The night is also usually more conducive to cacerolazos.

"They can also make cacerolazos at us at noon. Besides,

where is it written that we have to talk during the day?

", they up the ante in the Government.

40 minutes, the inheritance and let the posters come

Although the Government is quite careful with the content of the presidential speech, there are some defined general parameters.

It would last "about 40 minutes" and will focus on "inheritance

. "

As this newspaper also anticipated, another disruptive element would be the place from where the President will speak.

Instead of doing so from the historic Parliament dais, he would do so

from a

specially placed lectern.

The lectern that was placed in Congress and from where Milei would speak in the Legislative Assembly.

Milei had already shown signs of his

obsession with differentiating himself from the caste

when he assumed his mandate.

She left the premises and spoke "to the common people" from the steps of the palace.

"

I hope they bring posters or get offended and leave their seats

. Everything that comes in that sense is a gain for us," evaluated a collaborator of the President, hours before the presentation.

Does that imply that Milei is going to directly provoke them with her speeches?

Silence

.

In the opposition there is fear of attacks and a debate was generated about what to do if this happens.

Data in hand, in La Rosada they assure that

politicians and union members top the rankings of discredit

in the eyes of public opinion.

The media is also mixed there.

"It's true, but you journalists, in general, are paid by the private sector.

It's not the same

," says an official source, as if to distinguish who the main targets would be.

The President's fury with some colleagues raises at least one question.

The disregard for the Legislative Branch feeds back into the Government.

Milei already made it clear that the first part of his administration

could do without the work of deputies and senators

.

Medium and long-term reforms do not.

That is why another plan is hatching in his head, when he has not yet completed three months in power:

to hold a big election in 2025

, allied with Macrism, and to definitively advance Congress.
