Candidates on demand
This week of closing lists unleashed a nervous breakdown in the corridors of the Casa Rosada. The level of concentration in the decision on the lists for the province of Buenos Aires (the main knot to untie in the internal life of the Frente de Todos) was such that the old recourse of the uninformed was repeated: “What do you have?” The officials asked some journalists, showing the degree of confusion in the albertist troops.
A few hours before definitions of the lists of the Frente de Todos were known, the Minister of Tourism went up to the first floor of the historic house, exhausting his cell phone: “Are you talking to Leandro Santoro or Juan Román Riquelme?”Another member of the national Cabinet asked him, It is that Matías Lammens defined his luck in the Buenos Aires district lists at the same time that he negotiated, as vice president of San Lorenzo de Almagro, the sale or not of the footballer Juan Ramírez to the institution xeneize. But Lammens secluded himself in the office of the president’s chief adviser, Juan Manuel Olmos, one of the main negotiators of PJ Capital, along with Víctor Santa María and the camper senator Mariano Recalde.

After Lammens, the mayor passed by the spacious office of Olmos Juanchi Zabaleta. The mayor of Hurlingham, in addition to being the controller of the PJ de Corrientes, it rings for these hours to occupy the Ministry of Social Development, in view of the fact that Daniel Arroyo will go as a candidate for Buenos Aires national deputy. Other names that arise for this discussion emerge from La Cámpora. One possibility is Laura Alonso, homonym of the former holder for the macrismo of the Anti-Corruption Office. Alonso is an active militant camper who appeared in the trouble for purchases of food with surcharges in Social Development, at the beginning of the pandemic. Will he be able to get to the head of the ministry after that affair? The other one that circulates is Andrés “Cuervo” Larroque, man of confidence of Máximo Carlos Kirchner, who today is the minister of the social area of Kicillof. Those who nominate him say that he would have a political back to fight in a ministry where social organizations have caciques installed, with cash and mobilization power. Those who do not see the “Cuervo” to assume there point out that Máximo’s friend today has a strong political role in Axel K.’s cabinet and that he would leave a gap, for which Cristina’s son has no replacement today. To be continue…

Meanwhile, in the Ministry of the Interior, located on the ground floor of the Casa Rosada, they did not emit a sound when they were asked why Wado De Pedro had not traveled -this last Tuesday- with the President to the Chaco, since the political minister always accompanies the head of state to the interior of the country. Perhaps the answer is in who was constituted, in these times of closures of lists throughout the country, in Cristina Kirchner’s spokespersons in the relationship with the Peronist governors. So much Wado De Pedro as Oscar Parrilli were the ones who drilled the phones of the provincial leaders with the political requirements of the former President. The “orders” were transmitted by the current Minister of the Interior and by the former Secretary General of the Presidency, who followed in detail the closures in each province where CFK has political interests and proper names to defend. How many will the Doctor not have received?

Hair and beard
Jumping to the opposition, this Wednesday the networks were upset with the posts of the main PRO referents who put a photo with a (red) hair in an enigmatic way. That a strange campaign was to install “Colorado” Diego Santilli as the candidate of the PRO unit and allies in the province of Buenos Aires. Despite the unusualness of the idea, the topic quickly climbed and became a trend on Twitter. But this “capillary” idea is not the only one of the “physical” situations that are discussed in the party of Mauricio Macri and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta: many are surprised to see the national deputy Cristian Ritondo with another silhouette. “He lost 14 kilos”, says a collaborator who has seen him on a strict diet since March and who knows that he incorporated physical exercise with a personal trainer. The one who laughs the most at the situation is Sergio Tomás Massa. The president of the Chamber of Deputies, when he sees him in Congress, spends it: “Here comes Ritondo’s brother.” Election silhouette …
In these hours of definitions in the Peronism of CABA. Leandro Santoro, backed by Kirchnerism and at the request of Cristina and Máximo Kirchner, was the one who came as the number placed to head the list of national deputies. But in the Buenos Aires FdT a debate arose at the last minute due to the proposal of a sector that began to question Santoro for seeing him with a very harsh speech to confront María Eugenia Vidal. In that kind of political fight between “Heidi” and a radical K, some imagine that this represents an advantage for the former governor in front of the electorate of the City. Before that, until the last moment, some fight for the alternative that a woman heads the Peronist list: Gisela Marziotta, backed by the SUTERH of Víctor Santa María. Thus, they would see a confrontation and a debate between women, a more voter-friendly situation. In addition, among the arguments they pointed to the unknown fact that Vidal and Marziotta have an ancient history that relates them: both studied at Our Lady of Mercy in the Flores neighborhood. Vidal, a year older, and Marziotta, wore the same green uniform that that all-women school imposed. both on the same shift tomorrow. White popcorn!
