After the commotion that was generated from the holidays from Luana Volnovich, head of PAMI, on a paradisiacal beach in Mexico, it was learned that another Kirchner official chose a destination close to that to spend the summer. Its about Minister from Territorial development Y Habitat, Jorge Ferraresi, who is in Cuba. The ex-mayor of Avellaneda also “disregarded” the president’s “order” Alberto Fernandez of “taking a few days inside Argentina” and went to Cuba.
“The logical thing” was for officials to prioritize tourist destinations in the country, indicated sources from the Government House, as stated NA. In any case, they clarified that Ferraresi’s journey to Cuban lands was carried out after previously speaking with the head of state. With which, there would already be knowledge of it, unlike what happened with Volnovich.
Excuse or consent?
“He came to ask what he should do. He had bought the tickets two years ago and if he did not use them he would lose them ”, pointed out from Balcarce 50. In this sense, the same sources specified that the head of the Territorial Development and Habitat portfolio was willing to cancel his trip based on what Fernández would recommend. You can see that he gave it the go-ahead because it is there.
It should be remembered that two years ago, Ferraresi was mayor of the Buenos Aires party of Avellaneda and he was still not mentioned to occupy a position in the national Cabinet, since he entered to replace María Eugenia Bielsa in November 2020. The former minister resigned from the position Due to the inefficiencies in its management, a product of the coronavirus pandemic, which led to a slowness in the implementation of policies that solved the problems of that Ministry, such as the taking of land in the province of Buenos Aires.
Upset in the Pink House
Regarding Volnovich’s trip, the Government House recognized that the news “did not sit well” with the head of state, since he was not aware of the decision of the national official. However, they clarified that the episode will not entail any consequences for the head of PAMI, whom they described as an official “with great capacity” to carry out her role.
And although they indicated that “there never was” an explicit recommendation by the President for the ministers not to travel abroad, they reflected: “It is common sense. The logical thing was for officials to prioritize local tourist destinations. ” And they described as “an imprudence, a bad decision” of the head of PAMI, akin to Vice President Cristina Kirchner.
