The defeat in the PASO last Sunday caused a severe setback in the Frente de Todos, to the point that the entire Buenos Aires cabinet put its resignation at the disposal of Governor Axel Kicillof.
This is what the Minister of Government, Teresa García, made known this morning: “It is what corresponds and now the governor will define with which team he wants to continue.”
Speaking to Radio La Red, the official said, referring to the ministers, that “none of us is essential and we are replaceable.”
This measure is read by many as an act of pressure on President Alberto Fernández, from whom different leaders of Kirchnerism have been publicly demanding changes in the Cabinet, even before the elections.
And yesterday, during the act that he headed in Almirante Brown, the president was accompanied by the chief of staff, Santiago Cafiero, one of those appointed to leave office, in what can be read as a ratification by the head of state.
Regarding what was the result of the elections, García assessed that “it was lost because there was a reprimand from society.” “There have been multiple reasons such as the situation of SMEs, consumption and a failure in electoral engineering,” he said. And he also indicated that “the component of the pocket component was important in the vote.”
“When a society is in crisis, we must all bet on solving it. It is time to stop licking the wounds of defeat and stop celebrating a relative victory. Now that we ask society how we are going to get out of this pandemic and reactivation economic “, indicated the minister in reference to what is coming.
And he added: “Peronism knows how to listen to the drum at the polls. I think there is a cross-cutting issue that is the emotionality of the vote.” “It is not a defeat caused only by the national question, it is not the responsibility of just one,” he analyzed, to which he added: “the time for proposals has begun.”
A high official source, very close to Governor Axel Kicillof, told eldia.com that “from the day we took office, the Governor has the resignations available. It is a team and it will always be where you need them. In line with what declared yesterday, the cabinet ministers know that none is essential and that if they consider it necessary, the consequent changes will be made. No one is screwed or infatuated with staying in a place or with a proper name. However, what we have to deepen at this moment it is the management and the facts, it does not go through the names “.
