“The best thing is to leave the scene.” Worried about economic decline due to rising social conflict and inflation, Horacio Rodriguez Larettaone of the president together for change Those who hold management positions, a double-edged sword for the national project, are committed to staying under the radar and treading cautiously in an increasingly volatile political landscape.
The mayor is not only concerned about a resurgence of protests due to the crisis and that the government will go ahead with the final suspension of the PASO of 2023, a move that could shake the internal opposition, but also assumes a rarefied climate. The land grab and tire struggle at Villa Mascardi by self-proclaimed Mapuche groups overlap with events that provoked his administration, such as the doctors’ strike, the capture of Buenos Aires schools and leftist organizations’ cuts on the Avenida and Camp July 9. However, the episode that most worries Laretta at the moment is the virtual fracture of the general union of labor (CGT), Later Paul MoyanoThe head of the truck drivers, who struck a deal with the city this week to nationalize the tow truck service, threatens to leave the trio leading the labor union.
owing to the fact that . economic context of together for change, like Hernán Lacunza or Ricardo López Murphy or Guido Sandleris, predict a gloomy outlook for the next two months, monitoring the progress of Buenos Aires’ major crisis. At the same time, his colleagues look with concern at indicators of the social climate: they believe it is their turn to govern and list a candidate for the presidency. “Complicated Times”, with widespread discontent with the ruling class and a severe lack of interest in politics. In this context he says in Uspallata, this is “Tough” Generate hope: “There is a lot of pain and uncertainty with the future,” Graph one of his colleagues.
Faced with a growing economic and social fallout, Mayor’s shipowners predict the country’s landscape will be even more complex in December 2023. Although the budget prepared by the Minister of Economy, serge massait was more “reasonable” And despite criticism for an annual inflation rate of 60% – legible to opposition leaders, Laretta sees the Tigers will have little room for maneuver from now on. He understands that Christina Kirchner’s first warning about Massa’s plan revived the brutal interior of the Front for Economic Policy Orientation. Therefore, unlike the other members of the PRO, he does not believe that Massa could halt the rise in inflation or stabilize the crisis, and pose a threat to JXC. In other words, due to official internal affairs, it would be very difficult for a minister to satisfy the middle class and productive sectors, allowing the government to recover its electoral potential. In this framework, the chief of Buenos Aires attempts to avoid unforced errors and proceeds to carefully preserve his figure and capitalize on dissatisfaction with Kirchnerism. “The best thing that can happen to us is to leave the scene and fight with them”, Repeated in the dome of the city. Laretta bets on coming out with flying colors after the storm passes.
The day before yesterday, at the Buenos Aires cabinet meeting, López Murphy resumed his diagnosis in front of Laretta and his ministers on the economic situation and the resurgence of social conflict. And they warned, above all, about the deterioration in the ability of the state and its forces to restore order. For months, the leader of the United Republicans has warned about the risk of “decapitalizing” the armed forces.
In Laretista Command, they watch with alarm the resurgence of the atmosphere of violence and the context of greater tension in different parts of the country. They imagine the scenario of “Anomie”. And they are concerned about the government’s lack of response. Although the mayor maintains his communicative philosophy, a change in social mood prompts him to harden his positions. For laretismo, it means “demonstration of perseverance”, not “hawking”. For example, the day before yesterday, he published a paper in which he assured that the Kirchner model “failed” and that it opposes “violence”.
The return of social struggle is also being felt in the city. Laretta faced several episodes this week. Municipal doctors went on strike on Tuesday demanding a pay hike, and students from twelve schools in Buenos Aires took over the establishments. Between Wednesday and Thursday, picketing demonstrations led to traffic chaos in the city of Buenos Aires.
Laretta Avenida was satisfied with the actions of the City Police at the picket line and camp at 9 de Julio, and believes that the school is the instigator of politics behind the takeover. “They are seasonal. They usually happen every year around this time”, he says in the city. In parallel, the mayor agreed with Moyano in the conflict over the crane. That conversation was questioned by the hard wing of the JXC. was.
At the small table in Laretta they reiterate that management is a “challenge” and an “opportunity”. For this reason, he bet on managing conflicts and preserving the mayor’s figure for 2023.
