Larreta and Lousteau, allies in the capital since 2019, met this morning at the pastry shop Las Violetas, in the Almagro district, where they spoke to the residents of the area. “There are always constructive suggestions. We are always looking for ideas to improve people’s everyday lives. We are always thinking about it,” said the mayor of Buenos Aires after the activity. They discussed “security, transit, public space, culture and economy,” according to sources in Buenos Aires.

Pro’s founder’s public support for mayor Vicente López’s use of the license caused an uproar within Together for Change in Buenos Aires. It is that although Larreta involved Jorge Macri to his cabinet in December last year – the agreement was signed after the discussion had passed Diego Santill In the 2021 legislative elections in the province of Buenos Aires – the head of Buenos Aires has not yet decided who he will support as his replacement candidate. On the one hand, the figure of his government minister Jorge Macri, whom he allowed to compete, stands out. And, on the other hand, it stimulates the chance that Larretistas Soledad Akuna (Education and Fernan Cyrus (Health) also hit the ring to retain Uspallata’s Chief Staff Chairman.

In the middle is Lusto, with whom Laretta has a strategic alliance since 2019.

Macri’s blessing to his cousin caused a stir in Pro Da to break the mood of radicalism in Buenos Aires. In the Larretismo sector, they interpreted that the former president was trying to block Larreta and block the final agreement with Lusto, or that he would use Quiro or Acuna’s letters to exchange Bullrich’s domestic support at the national level. Meanwhile, within the ranks of radicalism in Buenos Aires, they insist that the mayor can break with Macri and form an anti-split group in Together for Change. In this scenario, they suggest that Laretta could bet on Lusto in the capital.

The board of Together for Change in the City was so agitated that from the ranks of the UCR in the capital they started the first bursts of friendly fire. as stated They warned on Wednesday that Jorge would not meet the five-year residency requirement set by the Buenos Aires constitution before the election date. Moreover: they remember the predecessor Adrian Perez, who was disqualified from the competition in 2010 due to the decision of the High Court of Justice of Buenos Aires. “Mauricio is a living barbarian: he demands that the constitution be on the table to talk to Cristina, but not to support his cousin, who cannot prove five years of residence. Besides, he was born in Tandil,” they said.

Jorge Macri’s entourage rejected this proposal: they said that the address “will not be a problem” and the minister meets the legal requirements of competition. “He says he’s perfectly fine because he’s been working at Banco Provincia in the capital for the last few years. More than five years. But hey, he’s an adult… when they interview him, he’ll answer them, he’ll have to answer them,” the former president said yesterday on Radio Miter when asked about his cousin’s alleged disqualification from contesting in the city.
