While Fernández criticized Volnovich's trip, Ferraresi also went abroad

In contrast to yesterday’s more benevolent stance, the government was growing uneasy about the trip of the head of PAMI, Luana Volnovich, to the Mexican Caribbean, in the midst of the economic crisis and while the ruling party tries to promote domestic tourism. Although they maintain that Alberto Fernández had not instructed his officials to prioritize vacationing in the country, they believe that staying within the borders was a decision of “common sense for all” members of the national administration and considered that the choice of That fate on the part of the head of the body that manages the retirement welfare project was “reckless.”

President Alberto Fernández himself, towards the end of the year, in an informal meeting that took place in the Quinta de Olivos, confirmed that he had conveyed to his officials that he had no problems with them traveling to rest after a demanding and intense year by the COVID, but asked that “no one travel abroad.” In the Government today they deny that this message has been produced. “He did not ask anyone for anything,” they assured.

In any case, official sources assured, Alberto Fernández will not ask Volnovich, one of the government’s camper leaders, to resign, who was involved in a scandal when a video image that shows her days ago in a bar on Holbox Island emerged. , in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, together with the second official in the organization he leads, Martín Rodríguez.

“The President found it reckless, not to notify and vacation in a destination that is paid in dollars. There was no explicit communication on their part, ”they said at the Government House a day after the images were released, which generated criticism from the opposition. They contrasted his case with that of the Minister of Habitat and Housing, Jorge Ferraresi, who traveled to Cuba as a tourist, but first notified the Chief of Staff.

In any case, they remarked that Alberto Fernández is “understanding.” “He knows that we can all have difficult and imprudent years,” they said in Balcarce 50 to alleviate the questions that had begun to transcend off the record from other national officials who did not take vacations or were in destinations on the Buenos Aires coast or inland. .

Earlier, the Minister of Security, Aníbal Fernández, slipped a question in a contact with journalists accredited in the Casa Rosada after a meeting with the Chief of Staff, Juan Manzur, for a work meeting: “I am not anyone’s guardian, It is a question that must be resolved by someone else, not me, “he said, adding ironically:” Look where I am. I am also in the Caribbean. The others have to explain the other ”.

According to reports, Alberto Fernández and Volnovich, who was appointed at the beginning of his term, have not yet discussed what happened, and official sources ventured that they could do so upon their return. The official’s return date has not yet been stipulated.

Holbox is an island with a white sand beach located north of Cancun, on the Yucatan peninsula. An area very visited by Argentines. Very far from the national destinations promoted by the national government.

The situation generated a quick response from the Casa Rosada. They clarified that Alberto Fernández “never suggested not taking a vacation.” “She is an official who works hard and deserves to take 15 days off,” was the official explanation. Similar to the one they wielded from PAMI. However, today the mood had changed and the official was reproached for the decision.

Ferraresi’s journey

A few hours after images of the head of PAMI, Luana Volnovich, were known in a bar in the Caribbean of Mexico, President Alberto Fernández added a new headache. Despite his explicit request to his officials not to travel abroad – after prohibiting the purchase of tickets in installments – the Minister of Habitat Jorge Ferraresi decided to go on vacation to Cuba with his wife Magdalena Sierra.

As Infobae learned, the same day that the President asked his officials to enjoy their vacations within the country, the Minister of Territorial Development and Habitat warned him that he already had a ticket bought at least two years ago. In fact, he would have warned the president that he would have problems with his wife if they did not make the trip.

Specifically, Ferraresi took flight last week to Cuba with his wife, Magdalena Sierra, who serves as Chief of Staff of the Municipality of Avellaneda, a district governed until a few months ago by her husband.

In addition to the capital city of Havana, public officials also strolled through Varadero, located on Cuba’s narrow Hicacos peninsula. It is a popular spa town, known for its hotels and spa complexes.

Despite being on vacation in Cuba for at least a week, both Ferraresi and Sierra showed themselves on their social networks as if they were in full political activity. In the case of the national minister, he showed photos of himself along with other officials and neighbors in the delivery of credits for a house of his own in the La Costa Party.

He also published photos with the mayor Cristian Cardozo signing an agreement with the municipality to complete 41 homes through the Reconstruir program in Las Toninas. So did his wife. According to his Twitter account, last week he visited the 2022 colonies of the “La Saladita” Sports Center and the “Dock Sud” Sportive Club.

The Ferraresi holidays are known when the Government still does not overcome the political impact of the dissemination of Volnovich’s trip. The images of the head of PAMI on the paradisiac island of Holbox, in the Caribbean of Mexico, began to go viral this Tuesday on social networks and generated a wave of repudiation.
