Diego Santilli, candidate for Juntos (in his version without “for the Change”) to fight in the internal with the radical Facundo Manes, picked up the glove before a chicane of Sergio Massa and accused the Frente de Todos of “driving a vehicle looking at the rear view mirror“.
In the launch speech of the FdT candidates, Massa fired at the opposition. “I see in the last hours that Candidates appear who go from one place to another, as if it does not matter if one is rooted in the place where he lives when governing, “he started.
“And that over there happens more in the metropolitan area, I cannot imagine a Salteño accepting that a man from Rio Negro will be a candidate for him from one day to the next, “he said.
Although the president of the Chamber of Deputies he said it without naming anyone in particular, the words were understood as a chicana for Santilli and María Eugenia Vidal.
It is that while until now one exercised executive functions in the City and went on to fight in the province. And the former Buenos Aires governor (who was also deputy head of the Buenos Aires government), now he decided on Capital.
Speaking in La Cornisa by LN +Santilli answered Luis Majul’s question (“Was that for you?”). “Surely. There is not a Buenos Aires man in these six months who has told me that. Today I was in San Nicolás and I went to see my son, “replied Horacio Rodríguez Larreta’s candidate in the province.
“Doesn’t he answer Massa?” The interviewer insisted. “I tell you that there is no Buenos Aires man who has told me that. Massa: there is no Buenos Aires who told me that. That is blaming the other, the same thing that the government of the province and the national government does, “Santilli insisted.

And followed. “Instead of facing the issues and saying ‘we have problems, these things happen and how do we change them’ … I’ll stick with the first five months when the government started, when they summoned you to discuss people’s problems. When the pandemic came they summoned everyone, “he rescued.
In addition, he said that he will look “forward, to the present and to the future.”
Rear view mirror
Santilli said that when he heard the speech (from the FdT) “it seemed like driving a car looking at the rear view mirror.”
“And so we Argentines no longer go out. If the discussion is what happened four, ten or twenty years ago, Argentina does not come out. People’s problems are those of today“, he sentenced.
In this sense, he listed that the concerns are “to make ends meet” or for the children to “be in school, learn and have a better future.” “The problem is the one that takes the bus at five in the morning and is at the mercy of being mugged“he continued.
In his reply Santilli he didn’t mention it either, but when saying that from the ruling party they blame “the other”, it also gave rise to think that he was also pointing to Axel Kicillof (formerly domiciled in the City of Buenos Aires), to be a candidate for governor of Buenos Aires.
The district jump between officials or former officials who move from Capital to Province or vice versa is not a new phenomenon in politics.

It has also been pointed out at the time to Daniel Scioli, in his previous move to Vidal, to Graciela Ocaña and even to Elisa Carrió, who was about to change district to compete, but was finally dropped because her postulation of “sense historical “and consider his” sacrifice “something” useless “.
Perhaps the most remembered of the district jumps – and the largest, if it is about extension – was Cristina Kirchner herself, who was a senator for the province of Buenos Aires – as was her son Máximo, in her case, still a deputy. -, when the roots of both are known in the province of Santa Cruz.
