The Peronist governors will accompany the agreement with the IMF in Deputies, but they are worried about the electoral future

CORDOBA.- The Peronist governors -not including the Buenos Aires Axel Kicillo– are looking forward to how the situation will be rearranged in Deputies (and in the Government in general) after the resignation of Maximo Kirchner to the presidency of the block of the Front of All (FdT). Its legislators, they say, will accompany the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), but not only do they not know if the necessary votes will be there, but they are worried about the impact of the “Domino effect” of the internal ones in the alliance.

“This he does not encapulate in Buenos Aires; it is not born and ends there”, points out a source from the San Juan officialdom. In that province, Peronism won the legislative elections by a very narrow margin. The analysis, in general, goes beyond the negotiations with the IMF and points to the next electoral year.

The leaders of the FdT know that the agreement with the Fund involves game adjustments and there are several who they admit that the transfers they receive from the Nation could be cut, especially since there is no budget law. “There is no other option but to accompany, as we have been doing,” slides a minister from a northern province.

The figure “not taking your feet off the plate” was repeated in three of the nine districts consulted by THE NATION. They endorse the decision to “accompany” the president Alberto Fernandez with the attitude they assumed after the defeat in the PASO, when the vice president Cristina Kirchner published his critical letter. “We were by his side; greater evils must be avoided, although it cannot be ignored that there are unwanted effects”, insists the northerner.

The deputies who respond to this group of leaders are concerned because German Martinez -Máximo Kirchner’s replacement- did not call a meeting to analyze the situation; They hope it will be soon. None of the governors have a close relationship with the deputy; two of those consulted stated that they had thought that Jose Luis Gioja, could function in that position.

“There are expressions that are worrying, such as those that suggest that the agreement will be modified in Congress; a block meeting is urgently needed. There are very serious questions that are being said to mark the court and that are not an expression of the block”, maintains a national deputy who answers to a governor of the center.

From the governorates they point out that they have “management responsibilities” so they understand that an agreement with the IMF – they clarify that “in the terms” of what was proposed by Fernández and Martín Guzmán – is also important for the provinces.

On the one hand, because it would give more predictability to the activity and, therefore, to the collection and, on the other, because the financing from international organizations for infrastructure also depends on that.

After the resignation of Máximo Kirchner, there were ministers who pressured some governors. The Cabinet Chief Juan Manzur and the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro had meetings and phone calls. TOAs soon as the pre-agreement was announced, several leaders came out to support the management of the Nation, so they were conditioned by those expressions. They are the cases of the Pampas Sergio Ziliotto, the santacruceña Alicia Kirchner; the sanjuanino Sergio Unac; the chubutense Mariano Arcioni Y Omar Perotti of Santa Fe and Gustavo Melellafrom Tierra del Fuego.

The Riojan Ricardo Quintela also expressed its endorsement Jorge Captainich, from Chaco, spoke of the beginning of a “new stage” with the IMF; He did not refer to the decision of Máximo Kirchner, whom he has used to praise as “a great political figure.”

Some deputies who respond to governors speculate that the head of La Cámpora is looking to grow on his own with his sights set on 2023; they don’t even mention the traditional 30% of the vote that the Vice President seems to have. “It starts from further back, it is what one can assume to understand an attitude like the one he had,” they estimate.

“Máximo accelerated the times in provincial armed – analyzed in Catamarca-. There are internal processes in this district that will begin to be analyzed now.” The reference is to the fact that Governor Raúl Jalil is an Albertist and Lucía Corpacci, a Christian. There was an implicit agreement of two terms each, but corpusism would speed up the clock.
