Mauriceio Macri and Maria Evgenia Vidal: lunch and the idea of ​​unfolding the elections

On Wednesday, they met at Suipacha during a tour of Highway 5, but yesterday at noon, at a private meeting in Olivus, for the first time they spoke of the possibility of overtaking the Buenos Aires election for the national calendar, a strategy that encourages wings. Buenosairean policy and this is observed with disbelief by the national executive.

In the morning, the president and governor visited the National Recreation Center, located in Buenos Aires, in Ezeiza, as part of the summer colonies 'My First Feasts' program, aimed at children and adolescents in the suburbs.

Then they went to Residencia de Olivos to lunch and talk about business and management issues. The proposal was made by the president himself who was unable to exchange views with the provincial governor and the former vice president of the Buenos Aires government.

The news was that Vidal "put aside", as the newspaper could have known, the idea of ​​expanding the Buenos Aires election as a way to improve the chances of re-election of Makri himself in the generals of October.

In La Plata, they believe that the victory of the provincial election would strengthen the presidential nomination – now affected by the economic crisis and subsequent social distrust – in August PASO and the general elections in October, and at the same time disqualifying the Peronist party, which has no strong candidate in the province . Even the swords hold the governor that this measure will "hurt" Christina Kirchner's presidential nomination.

However, national and provincial sources have clarified that the electoral strategy in question is being discussed, but it does not deepen that "there are currently no definitions" and that the two leaders will decide not later than the beginning of March. In the province, they believe that this is the deadline, because before a favorable decision is taken, it will be necessary to implement measures to move it (one option is to cancel provincial passages on the case).

As the Buenos Aires factories started raising the strategy, late last November, it was clear that neither Marcos Penya nor consultant Jaime Duran Barba shared it because they believe it weakens the presidential figure.

The truth is that a qualified national government source has thoroughly consulted the agenda of yesterday's Olivis meeting: "They talked about provincial governance, current affairs and planned, infrastructure as a major axis. The division (the electoral) they played but was not the main topic.

Last week, a close associate of Macri entrusts this newspaper to the fact that beyond the dioceses "will not be unfolding and Makri and Vidal will go to the same vote" on October 27th.

Near the President of Buenos Aires, they are saying that the idea is "not to cut" that they do not want to impose an idea but to help Cambemos win the presidential election. "We are Mauritius soldiers, we do not care: we know that Maria Evgenia wins in any scenario, now or in October, so we are in the office of the President," a source close to the governor of Buenos Aires concluded yesterday.
