The trip will include a dissertation on “Democratic Dissatisfaction” at a university in Naples. The networks exploded against the former president
The Vice President Cristina Kirchner is at the center of a controversy in her wake travels to Italy, and according to reports, he will not do it on a commercial flight but on a presidential plane.
The trip will include a dissertation on “Democratic dissatisfaction” at the University of Naples Federico II, commemorating 40 years of the restoration of the vote in Argentina.
However, what opened the cracks was the chosen mode of transport: the presidential plane ARG-01, a recent acquisition worth more than 20 million dollars. Although there is no official order yet, there is advance notice for the use of this plane to cross Kirchner.
This fact has generated criticism since the trip is not considered an official mission, which raises questions about the appropriateness of using state resources in this context.
The trip may include an audience with Pope Francis during his stay in Rome, adding another dimension to the significance of the visit.
However, the main focus of public discussion remains on the use of ARG-01, once again confirming the use of public resources in favor of Cristina Kirchner.
The decision to use the ARG-01 presidential plane for an unofficial event may have wider implications, not only for the image of the vice president but also for the public’s perception of the management of government resources. Cristina Kirchner will end her term on December 10, 2023, and will not hold any public office. Currently, criticism of social networks has increased. Some even promote the mobilization and display of the airport for the use of public money for a trip that is not official but personal.
