“Silence please”, was the phrase most repeated by the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa, at the start of the presentation by Chief of Staff Santiago Cafiero. The session, colored by the pre-campaign climate, recorded strong crossings and forced the head of the Frente de Todos bloc, Máximo Kirchner, to demand “respect” from his own legislators and opponents.
“Neither the president, nor the cabinet, nor any legislator of the bloc is thinking about a deputy more or less. Some will be thinking about that. The vaccination campaign is much more important than the electoral campaign,” he said at the close of his speech initial Cafiero, although he immediately chicanered: “Short-term anger or euphoria can give you one more rating point, yes, but it will not give an answer to the problems of the Argentines. The strategy of making the angry people more angry is not constructive for the next Argentina. “
When the time for questions of the Together for Change block opened, the criticisms did not take long to arrive.
“See the straw in another’s eye and not the beam in one’s own eye It is a problem because you are the Government, so please try to take this advice, “the first opposition speaker, the head of the Civic Coalition, Juan López, crossed it, who asked the official what was the” direction “of the management.
Then Waldo Wolff (PRO) took the floor, who began by rebuking Cafiero: “You ask that there be no knock-on effects and this week you said that the country is not ‘shit’. The one who is all the time in the media saying You are grandiose things. But I never once heard you say the word ‘sorry’, ‘sorry’ or any synonyms. “
He did not finish the prayer that from the block of the Frente de Todos, they began to cross him shouting, while Massa again asked for silence.
“President: control the ruling bloc. Capable, as they do not have a block president, they do not know how to behave“, provoked Silvia Lospennato (PRO), alluding to Máximo Kirchner, head of the Frente de Todos bench.
“If you want I will make a list of all the interruptions of your deputies when the head of the Cabinet spoke,” Massa retorted, as he tried to order and asked the pro-government deputies Cecilia Moreau and Gabriela Cerruti for silence.
The situation forced Máximo to ask for the floor to calm the waters. “Throughout this year and the previous one, every time I had to speak, they have yelled, insulted, made all kinds of scandals. I also see now that you who want to be heard,” he began and continued: “I never complained, I never yelled, I never made a fuss. I ask the members of my bloc, deputies and deputies, who are in person and those who are remotely, to respect. We know how to listen. And we expect the same attitude later, “he said.
The weather calmed down but the accusations continued. “You rule. You would have to stop looking in the rear view mirror because it is crashing on all corners. Do you know who portrays the country? Those who see what you are doing. Argentina is doing shit because they have no economic plan “, said Cristian Ritondo, head of the PRO block, at the close of the round of questions from Together for Change.
“I regret that the discussion has not been limited to the data. There was a lot of personal positioning, which goes against what those of us who are carrying out the Government are doing,” Cafiero replied.
Following that logic, he targeted former President Mauricio Macri. “We are not exempt from errors but we are working to raise Argentina and that implies not cutting at 6 o’clock in the afternoon to watch series“.
