In the Front of All they perjure that it is not a kept secret under 7 keys, that the truth is that just 19 days of the legal term for the presentation of lists with candidates for the STEP not defined yet who will head the ballot of deputies for the province of Buenos Aires.
As promised by the ruling party, “next weekend” the name of the chosen one will be known and they say that “there are 6 or 7 “ names in dance.
“We are surveying these days”, expand on one of the legs of the ruling coalition. Based on what emerges from the polls, among the main partners of the ruling coalition they will define the head.
Axel Kicillof, Sergio Massa, Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner, in May.
The names that sound are the same that have been repeated for a few weeks: the mayors of Lomas de Zamora and Escobar, Martín Insaurralde and Ariel sujarchuk, the ministers Daniel Arroyo and Gabriel Katopodis and the chief of staff Santiago Cafiero, as well as the councilor from La Plata Victoria Tolosa Paz.
Of that platoon, the one that seems run ahead It is Insaurralde.
The thoughtful political window that he had last Thursday at the event in Lomas de Zamora with Cristina Kirchner and Axel Kicillof seems to have left him in better position than the rest, they interpret in Kirchnerism.
Another advantage for Insaurralde, they say, would be that it has a “plus“for having already gone through a campaign in which headed the Frente para la Victoria’s ballot in 2013, although in that election he ended up falling against Sergio Massa.
The Lomense plays allied with La Cámpora.
After the choice of who goes to the front, in the Front of All you will have to negotiate how the rest of the ballot is integrated.
Everyone’s Front renews in this legislative election 16 deputies for the Province (they have the expectation to make a good choice and get 17 in total).
In addition to leaving all internal sectors more or less compliant, another key is that he expire the mandates of several key legislators of the ruling party, such as Leopoldo Moreau, Fernanda Vallejos and the judicial unionist Vanesa Siley, which is part of the Council of the Magistracy.
Of those from Sergio Massa’s Renovation Front, the terms of office are due to two: Mirta Tundis and José Ignacio de Mendiguren, who still on leave.
The President of Deputies actually logró elect three deputies in 2017: the third was Daniel Arroyo, who resigned to assume as minister and was replaced by Liliana schwindt.
Massa, it is discounted, will try to renew three benches, although you will have to negotiate it.
Buenos Aires candidates
The City’s ballot is not official either, although in reality in the Buenos Aires territory the scenario is somewhat clearer.
“If it was not announced in the City it is because would be naked that in the Province everything is still open and with the opposition going to a very powerful STEP “, they say in the Front of All.
The ruling party renews three national deputies in this election: it puts into play the seats of Gisela marziotta, Gabriela cerruti Y Carlos Heller.
The president of Banco Credicoop ensures that number put to go in third place on the ballot (the expectation of Kirchnerism is to return three deputies for the City).
To lead they say that it is already closed for Leandro Santoro to go, who would have the endorsement of Alberto Fernández, Cristina Kirchner and La Cámpora (the legislator does have friction with a sector of the PJ).
With what the unknown is who will be the woman who goes in second place on the list. One option is Cerruti.
But there is also talk of Cecilia Nicolini, the presidential adviser in charge of the negotiations for the vaccines against the Coronavirus, and Maria Rosa Muiños, vice president of the PJ of the City and current Buenos Aires legislator.
To Muiños, who is also the wife of Juan Manuel Olmos, chief adviser of Alberto Fernandez, her mandate as a legislator expires and as she was already reelected she cannot renew.
