Emilio Monzó

The former president of the Chamber of Deputies Emilio Monzó came ninth on the list of candidates a national deputies from Together. In this way, who in the Primary legislative elections (STEP) integrated the ready from Facundo Manes, you already have your Return al Congress from Nation. However, you are evaluating giving a dangerous swerve face the general elections next November 14.

With a short-term perspective, Monzó is already thinking of forming its own bloc, taking into account its distancing from the PRO, especially from the hard-line macrista, as published NA. The fact of having played in the last elections on the Dar El Paso payroll only deepened the differences with the yellow party, which ran entirely behind the candidacy of Diego Santilli, winner in the internship.

From 2010 to the end of 2019, Monzó was part of the PRO and was a key player in the 2015 electoral campaign that decreed Mauricio Macri as President of the Nation. The then president rewarded him by giving him the presidency of the lower house, where he did an outstanding job in building consensus for the enactment of important laws for the ruling macrismo.

However, the differences between Monzó and the hard wing of macrismo, including former minister Rogelio Frigerio, became evident and the relationship deteriorated rapidly in the last two years of the Cambiemos government.

In fact, after the defeat in the 2019 elections at the hands of the Frente de Todos, Monzó put together his own bloc in the Buenos Aires Legislature and threatened to do the same in the national deputies with Sebastián de Luca at the head, but in the end he gave up. At the same time, he created the Dialogue Party, from where he built his own political platform.

It is in this context that Monzó does not rule out, taking into account these antecedents, creating his own bloc independent of the PRO in Congress. Sources in his environment point out that it is still “early” to draw conclusions and that we will have to “wait for the November elections”, but the differences that marked strong internal opposition in the opposition would be decisive for this rumor to become a fact in the eventuality.
