Governor, vice, four mayors and a minister: How will the campaign affect the management?

The electoral race is underway and nobody wants to lose territory in the middle of the campaign to reach Congress. The candidates for the Senate and Deputies are already in competition. This time, the PASO will have a special seasoning: the “heavy hitters” of Tucuman politics will compete for a seat, but especially for the near future that points to 2023 to govern Tucumán. In other words, the proselytizing campaign will be traversed by both the provincial and municipal government management.

They are not obliged to request a license from their positions to engage in the proselytizing campaign. But, as they are candidates for the National Congress, the messages will have a correlate in each of their administrations: either in the Government House, in the Legislature or in the municipalities of the capital or the interior of Tucumán.

All or nothing

The highest authorities of the province and the main municipalities appear as candidates on different lists. From the governor Juan Manzur, through the lieutenant governor, Osvaldo Jaldo even the mayors, German Alfaro (capital), Mariano campero (Good herb), Roberto Sanchez (Conception), Elía Fernández de Mansilla (Aguilares). To these names is added that of the Minister of Health, Rossana Chahla, which heads the list of candidates for deputies for the manzurismo.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Minister of Health, Rossana Chahla, you will have to do juggling to administer the vaccine management with the campaign events. The current legislation establishes certain limits to develop in the proselytizing field.

What the law says

Article 64 refers to the publicity of government acts. “During the electoral campaign, the publicity of government acts may not contain elements that expressly promote or discourage the winning of suffrage in favor of any of the candidates for elective public office, nor of the political groups for which they compete,” says the norm. -. It is prohibited during the twenty-five (25) days prior to the date set for the holding of the primary, open and simultaneous elections, and the general election, the holding of inaugural acts of public works, the launching or promotion of plans, projects or programs of collective scope and, in general, the realization of any act of government that can promote the capture of suffrage in favor of any of the candidates for national elective public offices, or of the groups for which they compete – it is added -. Failure to comply with this article will be sanctioned in accordance with the provisions of article 133 bis provided for in this Code “.

Cross attacks

Competition will be fierce among applicants. This was demonstrated in the first hours after the deadline for submission of lists. The candidates themselves loaded “thick ammunition” against their adversaries. From the stage and before a mass of followers, both Manzur and Jaldo charged mutual criticism within the ruling party.

In the ranks of Together for Change, the splinters of the electoral fight also jumped in all directions. No candidate wants to waste time or space. Everything that is used to send a message to the electorate will be used until the last minute.

In Buenos Aires

At the national level, something similar happens with the ministers of the Alberto Fernandez. Agustin Rossi (Ministry of Defense) and Daniel Arroyo placeholder image (Social Development portfolio) are among the candidates. His efforts will be crossed by the proselytizing stage. They are also not required to apply for a license during the campaign.

The questions

The electorate waits for the moment to cast the vote. But in this long campaign road with political crosses that will explode like splinters in all directions, these questions arise: Will public management be neglected in pursuit of the proselytizing stage? Will the candidates ask for a license, although they are not obliged to do so?
