Clear competition with Jorge Macri and Miguel Pichetto, the deputy head of the Buenos Aires government Diego Santilli refine the pen to close the list with which he will disembark as a candidate in the Province. Look for a “broad” proposal, which contains everyone, to confront Facundo Manes in an internal that they pretend that it is “of gentlemen”. “The adversary is Kirchnerism”, they assure.
The mayor of Lanús and former Buenos Aires official, Nestor GrindettiHe’s already wearing Santilli’s campaign manager outfit. Although he assures that until the last moment the negotiation will remain open to try to reconcile a unit list, the internal scenario today is inevitable.
In that context, Santilli polishes the names on his ballot. The internal dispute has in favor that there are fewer sectors to which it must conform, but a great one great against: as the lists are going to be mixed, the discussion is concentrated in the first places; the only ones with guarantees of reaching Congress.
The deputy Graciela Ocana (who has her own Public Trust party) is confirmed to second Santilli and be the first woman on the list.
Third place was offered to Vicente López’s mayor, Jorge Macri after he stepped down, but he declined. “It would only be a candidate if it is useful for a unit list. Not in one of the two lists”, assured this newspaper.
Anyway, there will be a place saved for a reference of yours. It is estimated that it will be for the macrista deputy Natalia Villa, That mandate expires.
The third place, they say, could be played for another mayor. Grindetti himself figures in that dance of names. But also for the representation of the Civic Coalition of Elisa Carrió. Deputy Juan Lopez, current president of that bloc in the lower house, it is a sung number. Although he entered as a Buenos Aires legislator, this year General Paz will cross to renew the bank.
The provincial deputy Gabriela besana, which responds to María Eugenia Vidal, and the former Security official Gerardo Milman, from Patricia Bullrich’s kidney, are also among the names.
For his part, Miguel Angel Pichetto, was tempted to be a candidate after deciding to support Santilli with his Republican Peronism, pero did not want to. He considers that it is more valuable to continue contributing from the National Table of the coalition. After 18 years as a senator, the Chamber of Deputies – which has a different style – does not seduce him, although he proposes a man of his confidence to join the ballot.
For socialism, which closed in Ciudad with Roy Cortina and in the province with the Mar del Plata Emiliano Fernández, a place of representation is also sought.
“Many sectors have to be balanced and these days are the ones with the greatest pressure and it is good that this is the case”, point in the PRO.
Santilli prepares for a territorial campaign, of “hand in hand” with the people. It will not reach the 135 municipalities before the STEP in September, but it will seek to cover as many as possible.
The First and Third sections will be the main destinations, along with the Interior. “It’s going to be a competitive intern but not bloody”, they assure. The discourse will be that the internal is to expand the front and not to compete. “The adversary is Kirchnerism,” they repeat, and they assure that they expect the same attitude from Manes. “If not later, it will be very difficult to put the lists together,” they point out.
Together for Change has the difficult task of renewing the seats he won in 2017, his best choice. In total there are 14. However, the Frente de Todos, must also support not only those of Kirchnerism – which that year played as Citizen Unit – but also those of Sergio Massa’s Renovation Front.
