At the request of the vice president, the Buenos Aires representatives of Unión por la Patria request that the Mayor of Tigre have two lists, one with Juan Grabois and the other with only Axel Kicillof. The plot of the confrontation.
The next President must govern an Argentina with 1,298 municipalities. What was never seen is that one of the candidates to lead the country refuses to bring on his list a mayor of the Conurbano with two consecutive terms and in search of a new re-election. That is what happened in Tigre and tries to explain the inexplicable: the confrontation of Sergio Massa with the communal chief Julio Zamora.
Going down to Zamora, Massa is deliberately rejecting the votes that the local chief could bring him closer since on August 13 the mayor will go alone on Juan Grabois’s ballot. Curious, the Minister of Economy makes a decision that favors his opponent in the Unión por la Patria primary.
Obviously, he does it to help his wife, Malena Galmarini, who competes with Zamora for the mayorship. he would be a sign of weakness de Massa for two reasons: the first is that he contaminates his national campaign with a fight in Tigre, his small payment. The second is the reason why Massa would have operated so that the National Electoral Chamber lowers Zamora: the purpose would be due to the fact that the polls would be giving Galmarini the loser.
Massa warned him Máximo Kirchner what he was going to do against Zamora. But not Cristina, who got angry when she found out and ordered the three Buenos Aires representatives to help the mayor of Tigre.
Thus, Facundo Tignanelli, Sebastián Blanco and Eduardo López Wesselhoefft asked the Electoral Justice to grant Zamora a second list, in addition to the one headed by Grabois. This ballot has two bodies, that of Axel Kicillof and the municipal one. That is, without a candidate for President.
“What they are asking for is, at least, extraordinary. The truth is, nothing similar ever came to us. A ballot hearing should be called again in which all political parties and coalitions participate for this particular case. Everything is very strange. This appears to be a fight between members of the same coalition (by Unión por la Patria) that since they cannot solve it politically they decided to prosecute him“he tells Clarion a very important member of the National Electoral Chamber.
also before Clariona high-ranking Peronist leader who, due to his party position, has a leading role in the Massa/Zarmora Gate, admits: “From the beginning Cristina’s order was for Julio (Zamora) to be able to carry the two tickets (that of Massa and Grabois) like the one that Malena (Galmarini) will also have. We all know that Sergio proposed to Julio a seat in the Buenos Aires legislature so that he could run for mayor. Zamora would have accepted if his wife, Gisela, was the first candidate for councilor of Malena. Sergio didn’t want to and everything broke. Later he operated with Olmos so that Justice would deny Julio the ballot “.
Cristina’s order to give Zamora a new short list with Kicillof at the head, was transmitted by the private secretaries of the vice president, Mariano and Diego. The problem was that this order was so unusual and far-fetched that even the Federal Electoral Judge of first instance and very close to Kirchner, Alejo Ramos Padilla, had to reject it as inappropriate and out of place.
Such is Cristina’s determination to intercede in Tigre’s brawl that she even gave a second order: that appeal Ramos Padilla’s decision. Now those who must decide are the three judges of the National Court of Appeals, Daniel Beja, Santiago Corcuera and Alberto Dalla Via. The first two had already ruled in favor of Massa when the minister asked to remove Zamora from his list.
Another curiosity: Massa, through the operator and national representative of Unión por Todos, Juan Manuel Olmos, based his request to go down to Zamora due to an “obvious lack of political communion.” What is surprising (or not so surprising) is that Malena Galmarini, who is also a member of the ticket that has Grabois as President, has just ranted against the piquetero: “Voting for Grabois is throwing the vote away”, she attacked seeking to empower her husband . Unless we are inventing a new dictionary, what about the Head of AySA could not be interpreted as much “political communion” either.
