After Baistrocchi’s nod, the Capital PJ Boards came out to support his re-election | Cuyo’s diary

Without hesitation, the presidents of the PJ Capital Boards stressed that they will work so that the mayor Emilio Baistrocchi goes for re-election. Roberto Correa Esbry, from Capital Center; Marcelo Caruso, from Concepción, and Irene Romera, from Trinidad, and gave their support after the community chief, at the opening of the sessions of the Deliberative Council, gave a wink about his future by pointing out that “I encourage any challenge for come”. This show of unity and joint work also occurred on Friday, during a working breakfast that included the president of the Deliberative Council, Ariel Palma, and the head of the block, Fabián Juárez, in order to diagram the political and institutional management of the year, which is the prelude to the 2023 election.

Baistrocchi had already given clear signs of his expectations, such as in December 2020, when on Radio Sarmiento’s “A todo o nada” program he had said that “of course I would like to repeat as mayor.” However, the gesture that he threw now has its relevance because it occurs after the 2021 legislative elections, in which the candidates for national deputies of the Front of All (FdT) fell in the Capital before those of Together for Change (JxC ) by a difference of 28 points. In that contest, Governor Sergio Uñac went out to plebiscite his management, together with that of the official municipalities to counteract the wave of rejection of the national government. Hence, all eyes were on the results in each of the departments. That is why the support of the organic structures of Justicialism is relevant, as is the support of the swords in the communal legislature, which is where the projects of the Executive are approved.

The so-called management, that is, the provision of services and the carrying out of works for the residents, will be key this year to show results, taking into account that there is a possibility that the 2023 elections will unfold and be ahead of the national ones, so the people of San Juan can go to vote in the first semester of next year. It is that in the ruling party and the opposition of the capital they know in advance that a candidate for the Intendancy of this last sector starts from a floor close to 25 percent, due to a certain rejection of Peronism in the capitals of the country. To this must be added the wear and tear that the national government may have if it fails to steer the economy, which also impacts the mood of the voter. Despite these factors, it is also true that the PJ has been winning in the elections in which the leadership of the commune is at stake, as in 2007 and 2011 with Marcelo Lima, in 2015 with Franco Aranda and in 2019 with Baistrocchi. The PJ and the fronts it leads have been receiving setbacks in the legislative elections.

Correa Esbry, from the Central Capital Board, stressed that the mayor’s management “is very good” and that “it will improve over time.” Caruso, from Concepción, stressed that “things are being done very well, to the point that there is a strong investment in each of the districts, while Romera, from Trinidad, also highlighted the infrastructure that has been carried out and that “the fundamental thing is everything what progress has been made with the recovery of squares, lights and paving, plus what remains to be done.

One fact: the working breakfast did not have the presence of blocists, allies in the Council, and whose leadership has been saying that it will promote its own figures on the front, including Capital.

in opposition

The historic opposition candidate has been Rodolfo Colombo, from Actuar, who has several defeats to his credit. He is almost number one for the next contest, although there are voices in Production and Labor that indicate that it is time to install and present a candidate who gives competition, taking into account that it is the main opposition party.
