The decision to change the elections in Buenos Aires has changed in Cambiemos. The head of government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, who was already ready to unite the elections in Buenos Aires, will need another few weeks to publish it. The certificate will be in February. The most radical were the radical governors, Alfredo Cornejo (Mendoza) and Gerardo Morales (Jujuy), who were on standby at Maurizio Macri's request to unite until the dispute with Maria Eugenia Vidal resolved. Now, before the President's renewed pressure, suicide people give long and say that the issue will be defined in March. And they complain that there was no internal debate that would define the unification of the province of Buenos Aires.
The look Macri in his strategy of unification of all the over-election choices has so far been set up in Vidal. With his decision to leave any plan other than the one set by the president and his chief of staff Marcos Peña, Vidal managed to escape from that place and allow negotiations on the means he sought for the nation. Now Macri's looks point to the other three provincial governors who belong to Cambiemos and who have not yet come to the foot.
The first is Larreta, which obviously hints from the outset that it will unite the elections in Buenos Aires, which took away national pressure. However, the head of government has not yet determined. In their environment, they indicated they were "near" making a decision. First he will take a break in Brazil to think. In any case, a close head of government has made it clear that the decision will not reach March. Last year Larreta managed to change the law of Buenos Aires, which prevented him from unite in order to have a date available. Not showing resistance, does not get so much pressure.
This is not the case with the radicals that have been in the background of the unification strategy. When Macri received Cornea and Morales in Cumelena, Macri told them that they both had to unite. They stayed to think about it and asked him to first discuss the division issue in Buenos Aires. Now, with the united province of Buenos Aires, they remained without discussion. The manner in which it was solved left believers the taste of a small discussion.
None of them has great reasons for unification. Morales feels secure in winning any opponent, but has an alliance with the Renovating Front that is conditioning him. For now, he has claimed Macri that Jujuy does not contribute so much to the national re-election register. And he suggests that a convincing win by mid-year will be useful to the president: the same argument that Vidal tried and he did. Morales talked with Clarin to express his astonishment by resolving the dispute with Vidal: "I was surprised that what was agreed to be defined in March has moved on. We will adjust to the Cambia national strategy, he said.
In the case of Mendoza, Cornejo can not re-elect and try to impose his dolphin Martino Kerchner. Governor Mendoza is under the pressure of the radical intendants of the province, who claim to have local surveys to go with Macro against them. In short, the radicals still see Macri as a backpack in their local elections. For now, they define the definition forward: by March they will not say anything about the dates of the election.
Meanwhile, Deputy Governor of Buenos Aires Daniel Salvador said Vidal's decision was "best for the province and Buenos Aires."
"There is the same project at the national level, provincial and municipal level, when the analysis is conducted from that political space, we are very confident in the task being done," Salvador said.
For his part, the head of the Buenos Aires cabinet, Federico Salva, who promoted the division along with the political wing of the national government, went out yesterday to point out that Vidal made the decision "thinking that citizens of Buenos Aires did not extend the number of dates they have to go to vote. I also did not want her to sound like guessing on her side. "
However, Vidal clearly made it clear that the split was "a chance to debate what the government has been proposing for years, and that is to change the voting instrument to end the Savannah lists." "The province has electronic voting enabled, there are opposition proposals for a single ballot list and thus improve voting." But this time it was thought to have a simpler calendar and cost issue, he said.
