The ruling party continues suturing wounds after the closure: Alberto Fernández received Daniel Scioli and Sergio Massa is shown with Juan Manzur

Are intimate enemiesbut in his eagerness to show unity, Sergio Massa was shown again for the second day in a row with Daniel Scioli. The presidential candidate of Unión por la Patria shared an act at the CCK with the ambassador in Brazil, who hours later visited Alberto Fernández, after the traumatic closure of the ruling party.

“We spoke with Daniel Scioli about the need to build the future together. His institutional commitment is very clear, we must take advantage of all his knowledge and political capital. We are united by a friendship of more than 20 years and the search for a more just and democratic society”, the head of state tweeted after his meeting alone with the ambassador.

In his private life, the former governor and vice president always thought that Fernández could let go of his hand, as recalled by a Peronist leader who speaks with Scioli and works outside of UP.

The President and the ambassador met hours after the closing of lists, during the former’s trip to Brazil to commemorate 200 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The noise continued in the following days. They will meet again on Tuesday, in Puerto Iguazú at the Mercosur Summit. Massa will also travel there on Monday.

Peronism seeks to turn the page after the crossed accusations between the different allies for the closure that left Scioli without a presidential candidacy and two political referents of the head of state, who worked in the campaign of the ex-motornaut, inside the list.

as he told Deputy Chief of Staff Juan Manuel Olmos, Scioli did not accept being the national candidate for Parlasur, an idea that the President and Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero transmitted to him. “I just wanted to be president“said an official who participated in those negotiations.

Some of the Scioli’s closest collaborators they also paid the betrayal hypothesis that slipped from Kirchnerism.

Scioli thus ended a political reconciliation raid which started on wednesday when he visited Cristina Kirchner in the Senate. It had been the vice president herself who anticipated on Monday at the airport act with Massa that she had spoken by phone with the former Buenos Aires governor. “Never in my 20 years of politics have I felt so betrayed.“, was the message that, according to reports, the former governor had transmitted to the former president by phone. Lorena Scioli, the ambassador’s daughter who was also part of the fleeting campaign team, emphasized that reading with publications on social networks that they included the word “betrayal”.

After meeting with the vice president, Scioli received Cafiero at his offices on San Martín street. The chancellor had been targeted by hard Kirchnerism. The ambassador and Cafiero spoke again by phone this Friday afternoon after Fernández received Scioli at noon at Casa Rosada.

In the morning, Scioli shared an act at the CCK with Massa, who received him at the door of the Ministry of Economy. “Friend Minister of Economycandidate for president Sergio Massa, a recognition for putting at the center of the debate that an emblematic example is coming, the role of Aerolíneas Argentinas and its positive impact”, exaggerated Scioli at the act of the flag airline, where the minister was also present of Tourism Matthias Lammenswhose Portfolio was offered to the now ambassador when he had to leave Production due to the landing of Massa.

The staging of unity is multiplied by these hours in the ruling party, when the closure still left a trail of wounded. La Patria es el otro, Andrés Larroque’s group, which was left off the lists, took 96 hours to release a brief statement of support for the candidacy of Massa and Agustín Rossi.

The Minister of Economy received Juan Manzur on Friday, the failed running mate of Eduardo de Pedro.

“At this stage, unity and management must be shown. That is why there is a choral group supporting unity, because it orders and stabilizes each axis. Governors, union politicians and businessmen will continue to emerge in this line,” they explained close to the presidential candidate. The ruling party seeks to value its unity against the internal JxC. In the Renewal Front, they believe that the meetings with Scioli and Manzur are also a gesture towards the center of the electorate that the minister intends to seduce.

There are exceptions, Massa pressured the electoral board to lower the candidacy of Julio Zamora, current mayor of Tigre. The head of Aysa Malena Galmarini, who seeks to stay with the mayor and will carry the name of her husband at the top of the ballot, planned to attend the launch of Damian Contrerasthe Transportation official who will compete in the PASO against the municipal executive of Moreno, Mariel Fernandezvice president of the PJ and referent of Evita.

Scioli was returning to Brasilia this Friday. His role in the campaign is still not clear, although his team is betting that he could share management acts with Axel Kicillof. “Brazil is the country’s most important trade partner. Daniel will facilitate anything that is required or activated, as he always did,” the President’s men pointed out.
