María Eugenia Vidal shared last week Mauricio Macri and Marcos Peña's reserved lunch to relieve the tensions. Then came the Wednesday meeting in Trenque Lauquen, in which the President and the Governor smiled and was a melody. And finally, Vidal and his officials from Casa Rosada yesterday received the promise that Buenos Aires will have 19 billion pesos for their work to compensate for the devaluation of the Fondo del Conurbano. All the gestures that were undoubtedly significant, he did not achieve to end the governor's concern for next year's election.
This atmosphere of concern was breathed in the modern offices that Vidal had presented at the Museo Ferroviario in Avenida Del Libertador, a few weeks ago, in the flamboyant and strategic area of Buenos Aires. No surprise: The holding and the number of votes are two warning lights for the governor. Vidal, nevertheless try not to lose your smile.
Contrary to the optimism that usually occurs in the main offices of Casa Rosada, offices of the highest officials in Buenos Aires critical appearance is predominant and sometimes pessimistic about the current situation and the future.
One example: a civil servant in Buenos Aires yesterday did not hide his concern Alfredo Olmedo's deputy Infobae– launching his presidential bid to try to imitate Brazilian Jair Bolsonaro. Not because he thinks the Salta man has the opportunity to become president. "But if you take 3 or 4 points, it causes pain, and this is a sign of how bad we are", he said to the medium.
This is the air that nowadays breathe around the governor. Everyone is convinced of it Cristina Kirchner will be a presidential candidate, and no one encourages her to rule out her win. In line with the words of the moment, the Macri-Cristina Superman on the Copa Libertadores Boca River is spoken. Vidal, in principle, plays his own party in the province where he is no ballot, and the election is determined by a single vote. Apart from what has long been happening, they celebrate the existence of STEP to order the electoral commission and turn the elections into a second round.
According to the size of the governor's main staff, 75% of voters have already chosen to vote in 2019. Thirty-something Macri and a similar percentage consider Cristina. It is said that the other peronism candidates did not sell 12 points and did not notice anything that suggests that this scenario will change.
"Mauricio is staunchly poor, close to 35 as the dollar's bottom line., the mixture of irony and the resignation of the Buenos Aires official.
Surveys on Vidal show that Cristina's numbers are more or less the same. The reason for the bribe's notebook and the lines of court summons did not disappear in the vote. The only way CFK reduces is to repeat the main officials of the province to improve the country's economy. And he trusts that the situation can be reversed around the elections, injecting money in the suburbs.
"María Eugenia reached close to 40 points, but Cristina nearly 38% last year and does not fall off and no matter who the nominee is. Even Sapo Pepe is approaching 40% of Cristina's hands"He told Infobae one of the most trusted men in the governor. And as an example to the Moreno Municipality, where the numbers managed by the ruling party say that Mayor Walter Festa receives a positive image today of only 18 percent. Cristina would be close to 45% and without the mayor's candidacy would be unsuccessful, even if she was Festa.
In this scenario, and as Vidal recently said in public, Buenos Aires officials believe that there is no place for the governor next year for the presidential race. "Who gives you the domain?" asked about. And immediately added, "Our best team is Mauricio in the Nation, María Eugenia in the province and Horacio in the city, there is no place for any strange discovery".
Finally, and before the agreement with the nations had spread over 19,000 million pesos of jobs, the heads of government recognized the problem of financing the next election campaign. Because of the issues arising from notes and irregular payments from Cambiemos, it is assumed to be the most vivid campaign. There will not be many entrepreneurs who are willing to hire money or many of the officials they ask for. The most important is the structure of the national and provincial government of Cambiemos, as well as the many intentional organizations of chirurgism. Meanwhile, they also linked to large sums of money, from the work of the government to avoid social unrest at the end of the year.
On Wednesday evening she dined with Marcelo Tinelli and yesterday she was smiling again in a television interview. But as the main civil servants in Buenos Aires acknowledge, Vidal has many reasons to worry.
