A silent but fierce internal developed during these hours in the Buenos Aires provincial bosses and must be carried out with the possibility of next year's general election, which some believe will increase the likelihood of re-election. governor María Eugenia Vidal and Cambiemos adherents are still in the scenario of deepening the economic crisis.
The governor did not take a clear position on this issue, but allowed the debate, and this week during the seventh electoral tour tour slid, almost simultaneously, some details about how negotiations with the national government on additional funds developed for 2019, where the possibility of electoral progress was one provincial pressure tool.
"For our new works, we hope to restore Dana Conurbano's renewal, I told the mayor, I do not like to promise what I am not sure to fulfill and we must wait to restore the reform so that there is a new job," Vidal said. after meeting Gustavo Cocconi, head of communal Tapalqué as part of an official visit to the districts in the center of the province.
That is the key to understanding why this time the president did not automatically march with Rosada. Is that even within the framework of possible agreements with the president Mauricio Macri, is obliged to give a message of independence which also breaks its figure from responsibility in the economic crisis.
On the side of the split, although not openly acknowledged, the majority of the ruling party's ruling parties, especially in the conurbano districts where Macri's negative image can seriously damage their chances of being re-elected, aside from Peronism starting abroquelarse in the region who awaits the national definition and the mayor of Cambiemos has no weapons to face the progress of the opposition and maintain, in addition, the presidential vote.
The latest information available says that only in February the Cambiemos campaign team will make a decision regarding the Buenos Aires electoral decision, even though in reality, the definition will be given again by the PRO, once again eliminating radicalism, even though the power of a hundred years will see well an open eye, especially if it's within the framework of a national strategy that includes Mendoza, the governing province Alfredo Cornejo.
Double play at Massismo
The Renovador Front was the first room to urge the holding of elections, although in this case the aim was to allow the intendants to call elections outside the national calendar and, according to rumors, were not completely rejected, Sergio Massa I will ask Vidal as the currency to accompany the budget.
The agreement was unsuccessful and massism oscillated and although it was still the best choice to change from adding votes to deputies to approve "legal law", it no longer had a clear position on the progress of the election and at some point until it seemed that territorial leaders from the space had freedom act to close agreements with the Peronism sectors.
Meanwhile, Frente Renovador also tested the land to launch the first of its predecessors to the governor, deputy Jorge D & # 39; onofrio, it did not complete the formalities of its intention to compete, but it was shown as the most active figure on the bench, with strong criticism of the provincial government and a peaceful outlook with the rest of the opposition.
Peronism fights back
If complicated techniques for the electoral process are considered, without doubt that provincial Peronism is an absolute winner, counting in its history with collectors, testimonials, registration laws and, of course, lists sheets and papers, which sometimes guarantees traction from top to bottom and sometimes – sometimes from the bottom up.
The truth is that now, when the unity agreement is being advanced, it is precisely Peronism that opposes the high measure of electoral engineering, such as the progress of elections in the province, mainly because part of the success in 2019 depends, more than dragging national candidates themselves, whoever it is, from weight negative Macri on conurbano tickets.
In that sense, in addition, it is scientifically proven that the agencies in the midst of voting, especially nominations for governors, are the most likely to produce "associating" effects with other categories, so the whole scheme remains, with voter lists and sheets provide an ideal framework to overturn the "Vidal effect" which is widely feared in next year's elections.
Therefore, there are no pre-Peronism candidates, as Veronica Magario, Francisco Durañona o Alberto Samid, they do not even consider including the issue in the discussion and if it is finally debated in the legislature, prepare as a counter-economic argument, similar to that held by Cambiemos who try to eliminate PASO, that is, to double the election in the commune will be a waste resource.
At the same time, the question of management and critical acid that Magario always launches hardens. This week, the mayor of San Antonio de Areco added that Vidal was "a person who only appeared on television," in a clear allusion to the media attack by the governor in recent days.
In short, Peronism is approaching Cristina Kirchner did not want to know anything by being revealed, but chose to ignore the problem and focus all efforts to mark the mistakes of the Buenos Aires government.
