One of the main topics of this week in political matters was undoubtedly the trip of the owner of the PAMI, Luana Volnovich, al Mexican Caribbean. The situation generated controversy because President Alberto Fernández would have asked his officials not to have their holidays outside the country, but inside. But there was a “contempt” of the request. In this framework, a Kirchner official he left a support to his partner, but they reminded him their travels al exterior in full pandemic.
He is the mayor of Escobar in use of license and current president of the National Entity for Control and Management of the Waterway, Ariel Sujarchuk. In an extensive message on his social networks, the leader supported Volnovich after the criticism received for his trip to the island of Holbox, a few kilometers from Cancun, where he is with his partner, Martín Rodríguez, who, curiously, is the second of the civil servant in the social work of retirees and pensioners of the Argentine Republic.
Not only that she answered those who questioned her about her trip, but also that she sought to minimize the stir generated. But he spiced up the situation by telling Luana to enjoy her “well-deserved vacation” and to bring tequila. “Recharge energy and bring a tequila so that together with our colleagues we can toast a 2022 in which we continue working to expand rights, equalize opportunities and build Argentina that includes all of us,” said Sujarchuk.
On the other hand, he reversed the “vacations of the Frente de Todos” with respect to “those of Cambiemos”. “The double standard in the treatment of the rest of political leaders is unfair. If you are from Cambiemos, you can travel first, go to Punta del Este and they even praise the clothes you wear in the top magazines. If you are from the Frente de Todos, it seems that you have no right to anything. This double rod is outrageous, “he said.
Ah, but Vidal
Meanwhile, the leader of Escobar assured that “Luana did not go on vacation with the money of the retirees.” And he pointed to the national deputy and former Buenos Aires governor María Eugenia Vidal. “I support this support from the coherence because when the former governor spent her vacations in the same destination – while a large part of the Province was flooded – there were several Peronist mayors who defended her from criticism from some sectors before a decision of a purely private nature” , he pointed out.
Sujarchuk’s travels that the official forgot to mention
Exactly one year ago, an unexpected scandal was unleashed when it was learned that Sujarchuk himself had made dozens of trips to the United States without publicly stating the request and approval of the license granted by Escobar’s Deliberative Council. The Buenos Aires mayor on license began in 2020 in Miami (Florida), where he entered on December 27, 2019 and from where he left on January 4 of the following year, as he recalled NA.
That same month, he entered and left that same city in the state of Florida, on January 13, with a brief stay of 12 hours. About 10 months later – when the restrictions imposed by the pandemic on international travel were lifted – on November 20, 2020, Sujarchuk returned to Miami and withdrew on the 24th. Finally, the mayor arrived on December 4 at the city of Dallas and left there on the 8th of the same month, 2020.
