The governor of Buenos Aires province, María Eugenia Vidal, ensures that the ruling party's list of candidates and the election calendar will be determined "after March" next.
"The most important nomination is Mauricio Macri and it has been defined. The rest of the candidates and the election calendar are discussions for next year. Today is not on the agenda of people or me," he said in an interview published by the newspapers La Nación and Clarín .
Vidal made a statement after a week in which he speculated at an early election in the province of Buenos Aires.
He insisted that Macri "must be re-elected" and that, for his part, he would fulfill the commitment with the people of Buenos Aires to "not become presidential candidates next year."
"The Buenos Aires people know that I have defended them all this time and I will continue to do so. In addition, I will fulfill the commitments that I took with them and that did not take another governor: not be a presidential candidate next year," he said.
In addition, he avoided the pronunciation of changes in the election calendar in the province of Buenos Aires.
He noted that "all options are open and possible," although he clarified that "it is not time to discuss them" because "today the election is not on the people's agenda" or even his.
According to Vidal, the election calendar and nomination strategy is something that will be resolved "with the President, with the national Government, in the area of Change as in 2015" and there will be no definition "at least until March".
"The candidates are not determined by politics, but by the people," he said when asked about the possibility of nominating former president and senator Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and if that would benefit the Buenos Aires government. "At present there is a community sector that Cristina wants to become a candidate and that is independent of what people think," such as "there are sectors that want Mauricio to be a candidate".
For the governor of Buenosairean "there are no supporters or assemblies or meetings that determine them. This is society."
He considers that Cambiemos continues to express "what Argentina wanted in 2015 and what they still believe in, even with mistakes and success and with all that remains to be done" to reach "Argentina without lies, without corruption, with real work and not with poster. "
"If anything is clear in recent years, there is no one in Cambiemos who decides and others will praise Casa Rosada," he said.
"We all have the capacity to discuss, to increase differences and reach agreement," Vidal warned.
