The Government seeks to put cold cloths on the Volnovich scandal but there is still a definition in the leadership
Almost ten days after the scandal began due to the trip of the PAMI holders, Luana Volnovich and Martín Rodríguez, to a Mexican island, the Government seeks to end the issue, but the scandal continues with an open end. “The travel issue is closed”, they say in Balcarce 50, where they nevertheless admit that it is “an issue to be resolved” the fact that Volnovich and Rodríguez are director and deputy director of the organization and a couple at the same time.
Since the image that showed them together in a bar on a Mexican island was known, the scenario has been changing. From the anger and disappointment that there was in the Government when it was learned that they had traveled despite the presidential request that the officials rest in the country, a sort of “intermediate room” from which the continuity of both in the organism must be resolved later.
For that, the pending meeting between President Alberto Fernández and Volnovich will be key. They agreed to it by phone on Friday, but it has not yet materialized. When it finally happens, her or Rodríguez’s departure from the organization, which manages the fourth most important box in the National State, should be specified.
In the last few hours, Rodríguez’s departure was considered a fact, but was later frozen. In the middle, the stay outside the country of the Minister of Labor, Claudio Moroni, a man of Albertism, to Uruguay was also known. However, several of the voices consulted by The nation They assured that the situations “are completely different”. They affirm that both Moroni and the head of the Territorial Development and Habitat portfolio, Jorge Ferraresi, who traveled to Cuba, “had codes and warned.”
Unlike Volnovich and Rodríguez, members of La Cámpora, both Ferraresi and Moroni are two officials close to the President.
“Their situations are incomparable with those of Volnovich and Rodríguez”, they completed close to Fernández, a statement that they do not share a source from the camporismo. “In addition, the serious thing about Volnovich and Rodríguez is that they left an organization, which is practically a ministry, without political and administrative leadership,” they insist from Albertism. “Alberto is a guy who appreciates values, and what happened breaks his confidence,” they assure.
“If something is clear, it is that nobody here is going to be rushed by the media agenda or the lights,” completed a high source of the alliance of Government to The nation. In this scenario, not only would Fernández enter, but they also mention La Cámpora, the organization led by Maximo Kirchner that make up the holders of the PAMI.
In addition to the meeting that the President and Volnovich owe each other, if something indicates that the definition is not given, it is a fundamental antecedent in the Government and it is the one that has to do with the departure of Marcela Losardo, who for just over a year was Minister of Justice and whose head was insistently requested by the Vice President Cristina Kirchner. “Alberto is to let go. With Losardo he was ten days until he defined “, they remembered before The nation. “He is not letting himself be rushed and less when from the other there is the counterweight that is”, they assure in reference to the camporismo.
This is not Fernández’s first disappointment with a member of La Cámpora. Last September, in the week after the defeat in the primary elections, the President was surprised by the wave of resignations led by the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro, and which included Volnovich and a dozen officials K.
Two days after that mass decision, the head of PAMI even signed a resolution (1290/21) in which Rodriguez was delegated “the signing of all administrative acts.”
