The dialogue experiment started by the interior minister just two weeks ago, Edward “Wado” of PeterAgainst after attempted murder Christina Kirchner He was on the verge of shipwreck. Casa Rosada’s vague stance against Peronist governors’ demands to suspend next year’s PASO and Kirchnerism’s surprising progress in the Senate to expand the Supreme Court of Justice shattered the possibility that Together for Change could be a political conversation. would agree to. in front of everyone.
The vague hints of references to the ruling party during the final days did nothing more than confirm the distrust in the leadership of the opposition group about the integrity of the call. It is that a few days after De Pedro spoke of reducing the level of political confrontation in informal contacts with a handful of leaders of the UCR and CC or Christina Kirchner, he called for minimal agreements on the economy to be agreed upon and that it should be done. Gave. It is known that he will meet Macri, PJ’s governors double down on pressure to end primariesThe ruling party in the Senate called a session to revise the structure of the Supreme Court in the country, increase the number of its members, and the President Alberto Fernandez Emphasizing on “regulating the use of social networks” to curb so-called “hate speech”.
The renewed animosity of Kirchnerism alerted opposition leaders, particularly as referenced in the “falcon” of Prof. Patricia Bullrich, who disbelieved in La Campora’s call for harmony. Among the moderates they acknowledge that the climate generated by the government does not encourage the possibility of achieving greater expression among different political actors. “It’s a contradiction. They move untimely,” he complained. Gerardo Morales, Governor of Jujuy and President of the UCR, boarding a plane in Milan, Italy, where he traveled as part of an official tour. Morales was one of the JXC leaders chosen by De Pedro to begin talks with the opposition after the failed attack. Those talks did not succeed. There were no new calls for emiliano yacobiti (radical development) or a John Manuel Lopez (CC).
With this he confirmed that dialogue was born dead, there was one acting,Brother Mario Negri, Head of the Fundamentalism Bloc in deputies from Cordoba.
For his part, Mauricio Macri strongly criticized the chance that the PASO would be halted and the reforms of the Court that approved Kirchnerism in the Senate. “If everything in this country is worth everything then who is going to invest? A country that believes that a court can be made bigger than a soccer team”, he insisted in a conversation with Radio Mater.
In the atmosphere of Macri, with whom Christianity had tried to find a rapprochement until a few hours earlier, he confirmed his suspicions that the call to the opposition was a distracting maneuver. “They threaten to call and at the first opportunity they present corrections to the court and the PASO”, he explains.
During the interview, the founder of Pro insisted that he would not sit down with Christina Kirchner to talk about “how to handcuff justice,” but rather about how to recover a culture of work, competence and competence. will talk. Of course, he suggested that the former president should first self-criticize: “The dialogue can be built on the basis of saying here: The ideas we’ve implemented fail,” he said.
Despite the reports, aides of the former president – who will be abroad for several days – insist he received no formal or informal voting. Nor was there any contact between the official envoys and Christian Ritondo, Head of the Pro Bench. “this is impossible. He made everything move. Who can think we’re going to agree to talk about an agenda of issues that includes an election or justice reform?”, he comments on Macro.
After Kirchnerism’s threat to suspend the 2023 PASO and trying to reform the Court without consensus with the opposition, Bulrich seems to be right. It is that the former minister was one of those who objected to de Pedro’s claim to explore the Together for Change vision. He was also the target of criticism from several of his colleagues for not condemning the attack by the Vice President in Recoleta. She claims she decided to wait to hear Fernandez’s speech on the national network because she thought the government would radicalize her position. “I never believed in the call of dialogue. And I said this message of ‘peace and love’ was a lie”, Bulrich launched.
Attentive to the ruling party’s maneuvering in the Senate to expand the Court, the president of PRO is convinced that Together for Change should toughen its position and maintain a belligerent profile against Kirchnerism and its “demolition strategy of justice”. needed. He reiterates that his allies cannot be “naive” or “stupid” in the face of the ruling party’s call for dialogue: “You have to face everything. We can’t eat a single lie or enter their vocabulary.” are,” he says.
As for Bulrich, the JXC must “put a clear handicap” before the government: “Its purpose is to retain power and disarm Christina’s cause,” insists the former official.
Tomorrow, head to Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodriguez Larettarejected the ruling party’s attempt to go ahead with the Court’s extension amid a deepening economic crisis: “We do not want the executive power to administer, pressurize or limit justice. Those are basic agreements. which allow us to organize ourselves as a society and seek peaceful coexistence. If they are not fulfilled, everything else is very difficult”, he insisted.
Close to Laretta they believe that it is difficult to generate a scenario for reaching consensus in the face of the radicalization of the government or its “discrepancies”. However, the head of Buenos Aires bet on confirming his compromise profile: “It’s impossible [dialogar en este contexto]But right now is when you have to maintain that position the most,” say sources in Buenos Aires.
At the UCR they believe that Kirchnerism “used the reprehensible assassination attempt” as political input against the Vice President. “The first law the Senate deals with is an extension of the Court. They have dropped the mask of dialogue”, said centenary party sources.
According to Negri, the final call for the dialogue was a move to avoid “an agenda change” by Christianity and an “interpretation” of the causes of the economic crisis and the adjustment in public spending implemented by Sergio Massa: “any issue with justice is their Do not exceed passion. ”, Slide.
In the Civic Alliance, replacing Alyssa Cario, they evaluate Kirchnerism’s astonishing progress in expanding the Court with concern. “A dialogue agenda is impossible where the central issues of Kirchnerism are impunity, interference in another state power and a change in the rules of the game for the 2023 elections,” warned CC chief Maximiliano Ferraro.
In Cario’s force, they reiterate that the institutional setting for a dialogue to exist is Congress and that it should be limited to the country’s “most urgent problems”. “The dialogue should be honest, without lies or tricks,” completes Ferraro.
Although in JXC they believe the Front of All does not have the votes to approve reform of the Court of Deputies, there are leaders in the space who fear the government may want to seduce the UCR with chairs in the Supreme Court. . “No one should be stuck with Kirchnerism,” he suggests in Prof.
Meanwhile, the debate over the 2023 budget is already creating internal noise in JxC. is that Evolution Radical, the block they lead Rodrigo De Loredo and Yakobiti, surmised that they might “generally” approve the Massa-designed project. “How are we going to negotiate if they already have votes?” Pro’s “Hawk” complained. He suspects a deal to fund universities. Another sign of mistrust that is looming among the allies of the opposition alliance.
