key day for Together for Change, which is heading to an intern

Maximiliano Allica / [email protected]

Today is a key day for the conformation of the 2021 political board. The deadline has arrived to register alliances in the electoral justice and it is also time to define the internal rules of the game of each coalition to compete in the primaries. High impact decisions in Together for Change, which this year is heading towards a momentous bid.

One of the points to be resolved before midnight is the incorporation or not of two poles, the GEN led by Margarita Stolbizer and Avanza Libertad by José Luis Espert, to broaden the spectrum of voters. The first is very close to agreeing and the second wants guarantees that he will be able to go with his own ballot to September.

The other decisive item is that each coalition of parties, such as JxC, has the power to establish its own rules for competition in the PASO. A central aspect to determine today is what percentage of votes the losers will need to place candidates on the final ballot. This percentage is called “flat” or “putting in the minority.”

For example, if within Together for Change, parties A, B and C are presented in primaries, the total of votes obtained by the three spaces is taken and the percentage of each one is measured. One of the three will win and the other two will need to get to the floor for their candidates to put the minority on the final ballot. If the threshold to be exceeded is 30% and party A obtains 45%, B 30% and C 25%, the list that will compete in the general elections will be composed in its first places with the figures of A, plus some from B, but representatives from C are left out.

Two specific cases. In August 2015, Héctor Gay (Pro) competed in the primaries against Roberto Ursino (UCR). As radicalism got few votes and did not reach the ground, the ballot of councilors that finally accompanied Gay in October only included their own and left out the radicals. Another example in Bahia was Unidad Ciudadana in the 2017 legislative elections, where the lists headed by Carlos Quiroga and Rodolfo Lopes were measured in August. There Quiroga prevailed, although Lopes did exceed the floor and in the final ballot they had to include the former mayor in fourth place, in addition to giving him boxes 8 and 12.

What is the relevance of that math this year? Together for Change is about to put a low floor of 20%, which would stimulate competition because it increases the chances of parties starting with a disadvantage in their districts.

Since it exists, Cambiemos would be the most permissive model chosen by the coalition partners. Until now, these internal rules had more demanding floors, of 30%, tending to make the dispute in primaries more difficult. Especially in 2017 and 2019 when there were yellow governments aligned in the Nation, Province and many important municipalities.

But today the Pro must ratify its supremacy within the coalition and found an obstacle: radicalism. So far quite underestimated, this time he pushed to go to the primary or to be given a greater role.

In the Province of Buenos Aires, unlike CABA where the coalition sealed the unit, there will almost certainly be competition between the Pro and the UCR in all sections, both national deputies and provincial legislators and councilors. Today there will be a new summit between party leaders to define the details.

Diego Santilli and Facundo Manes

The radical Facundo Manes is a competitive candidate against the likely yellow contender Diego Santilli, sent by Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. The neuroscientist looks at polls and does not see why he would have to give up the first position on the list on a JxC unit ballot, so he asks to compete in the PASO against the Buenos Aires deputy chief or that the number 1 of an eventual unique ballot is his.

If María Eugenia Vidal played in the Province, the indisputable face would have been her, but when she went to the City and annulled Patricia Bullrich, the Pro does not have outstanding Buenos Aires names.

With Manes as the spearhead, many radicals want to leave the role of subordinates and fight for more. However, there are others who are very pragmatic who understand that in many districts they do not have enough muscle to beat the Pro and that ultimately too many injured people would come out of that intern. Bahia would be a case.

Until last night, the strongest possibility was total competition. If confirmed, on September 12 the ballots headed by Adrián Jouglard from Pro and Emiliano Alvarez Porte from the UCR would face off in the line of Bahia councilors. Curious: it is the Secretary of Government and his undersecretary in the area of ​​Security. In the court of Buenos Aires deputies there are still no names, but the dance is about to begin.

Who will the other parties in the alliance support, such as the Civic Coalition, Republican Peronism and other satellites? At the local level there seems to be an inclination to go yellow, but the rankings will depend on the agreements above. The most concerned are the extra Pro who hold positions in the Municipality, because they assume that if they are forced to stand on their hands against the hosts of Gay they would be putting their places at risk. Nothing is safe at this hour.

What is clear is that it is a primary with the smell of 2023. Larreta has already twisted the wrist in the internal partisan to Bullrich and Mauricio Macri, but he can still stumble over the Manes-Martín Lousteau axis and leave the field open.

“The pelado won the battles at sea, see if he loses the landing,” says an observer with first-hand information. The Larreta-Lousteau pike comes from the elections in CABA of 2015, when the current head of the Buenos Aires government had to perspire until the ballottage to beat the former minister of Kirchnerism and today a senator for the UCR.

As for Bahia, Jouglard is a well-profiled leader for what is coming, a dialogist. And he has someone who will seat him at the table very small. There is still a lot of history to write.

Leaders of All for Bahia.

The Bahiense Front of All is no less restless but, having clear leadership in the Nation and Province, is waiting for the last meetings with the national shipowners to finish sharpening the pencil. For now, all expectations of occupying pigeon holes on the lists remain almost the same as last week.

In turn, behind hyperpolarization, two neighborhood spaces move their tokens. Everyone for Bahia, already without Leonardo Valente, will sign up to participate again. Its reference Sebastián Gómez, who is closely related to the Villarinense mayor and Carlos Bevilacqua, a neighbor, intends to close the list of candidates this week, perhaps tomorrow.

An option that played a leading role in the first decade of the 2000s will also return. Integración Ciudadana confirmed that it will sign up in the race and has even already defined the first three names on its list of councilors: María de los Angeles Rosón, Nicolás Marín and Vanesa Troncozo .

The other protagonist, of course, will be the Left Front, which usually grows in mid-term elections and will try to access a local bank for the first time.

One question is who will wear the Florencio Randazzo shirt. Radio silence. Although someone is always willing to be in the photo.

The minimum objective of the spaces with less scope will be to achieve 1.5% in September that will allow them to compete in the generals on November 14. The maximum, pierce the figure of 8.33% granted by a bench in the Deliberative Council.

There seems to be no place for third parties this year, but no races are lost before starting.

With the discussion about the phases turned off, at least for a time, thanks to the drop in the contagion curve and in the occupation of hospital beds, today much of the debate around the management of the pandemic once again focused on the detection of cases and vaccination. The policy also looks carefully at this data.

The positivity rate in Bahía Blanca, that is, the number of positives based on the tests carried out, is around 40%, a very high figure. The explanation sounds simple: most people swab when they have symptoms, but since last year different doctors have warned that the city needs to be raked in search of the countless asymptomatic patients to isolate them immediately, creating sanitary barriers.

It is a discussion that is going to regain strength in the coming days, because just as the second wave seems to be already foam, the threat of a third wave looms with the massive circulation of the fearsome delta variant, which for now only registers scattered cases in the country but that could spread in these winter holidays, where domestic tourism will have almost no restrictions. The second wave, it is worth remembering, began to take off after the Easter holidays.

A difference in favor compared to April is that there are more people vaccinated. In fact, at this time in Bahía Blanca and the rest of the Province, practically no one is vaccinated who does not want to. The first doses are free at all posts for those over 35 years of age, risk groups of any age, health personnel, security personnel and teachers.

A couple of facts about the local situation. 47.66% of the total population already have at least one dose and 12.59% with two doses. These are figures slightly above the national average, which stands at 44.05% and 11.08% respectively. In addition, last Wednesday was the record day for the number of applications in Bahia with almost 3,600 and the average for July remains high, above 2,800 daily vaccinations.

However, the third wave, inevitable according to most experts, could rage very close to the PASO elections. Three questions: If there is a peak on those days, will the calendar be maintained or is there still room for modifications? If the primaries are carried out at a time of rising infections, how much will the participation of the electorate drop? If the increase in cases hits hospitals and stages, how much will it affect the government at the polls?

They are dilemmas that will begin to flood the periscope of politics.

Elections 2021 | The New York Times: Peru fraud accusation is more dangerous than Trump’s, says article

The accusation of fraud, without proof, made by Keiko Fujimori after the ballot in Peru “has not only delayed the certification” of the new president, but has also “radicalized elements of the Peruvian right”, which “could threaten the fragile democracy of the country, “says an article published this Sunday, July 4, in The New York Times.

Based on expert voices, the most important newspaper in the United States also affirms that the narrative of the heiress of Fujimoriism is more risky than that used by Donald Trump in 2020 or by Benjamin Netanyahu, in Israel, this year.

Unlike the US and Israel, Peruvian institutions are “much weaker, which leaves the country more susceptible to an upheaval, a coup or an authoritarian turn,” says the article signed by journalists Mitra Taj and Julie Turkewitz. .

“The narrative of a stolen election has sometimes acquired racist and classist flourishes. On the eve of the vote, false news circulated on WhatsApp that the indigenous people had surrounded Lima, which implied that they would use violence if Fujimori won, ”the English text reads.

The authors exemplify that, in a pro-Fujimori demonstration, “a group of young people in bulletproof vests and helmets marched with makeshift shields painted with the Burgundy Cross, a symbol of the Spanish empire popular with those who celebrate their European heritage,” and there were also “A man showed what looked like a Nazi salute.”

“Fujimori, the granddaughter of Japanese immigrants, (…) has been closely allied with the country’s elite, often of European descent, just as her father finally did,” the analysis points out.

This week, the Peruvian government rejected the candidate’s request to request an international audit on the presidential ballot on June 6. Fujimori denounced an alleged “fraud” from the day after the elections, when Pedro Castillo took over as leader of the vote.

The electoral observers of the Organization of American States (OAS) have indicated that the Peruvian elections were clean and without “serious irregularities.” The United States also declared that they were “free, fair, accessible and peaceful elections”, which constituted a “model of democracy in the region”.

Meanwhile, the count by the electoral body (ONPE), which reached 100% two weeks ago, gave Castillo 50.12% of the votes and Fujimori 49.87%, an advantage of just 44,000 votes.

He participated in an event in San Fernando in which the Buenos Aires Minister of Security Sergio Berni was also present (Photo: Press).

One month before the lists of candidates are presented, the president of the Chamber of Deputies Sergio Massa criticized the opposition and raised the tension in Together for Change, in the midst of the internal convulsion of the coalition to define the competitors for the legislative elections. He expressed: “It saddens me to see them fighting over the charges ”.

The former mayor of Tigre participated in an act with a campaign atmosphere in San Fernando, in the Buenos Aires suburbs. He was shown together with the governor of the province of Buenos Aires Axel Kicillof, the Buenos Aires Minister of Security Sergio Berni and the mayor of the commune Juan Andreotti.

The former chief of Cabinet said: “I am sorry to see that in Argentina the opposition is fighting over the charges.” He considered that due to the delicate situation that Argentina is going through due to the impact of the pandemic, the leaders must “fight for work, safety and vaccination against COVID-19 ”. He said that it is time to “take care of the Argentines, not to fight for the charges ”.

Massa is the leader of the Frente Renovador, which is part of the ruling Frente de Todos coalition. He asked for “unity”, as did the president Alberto Fernandez and the next head of the Buenos Aires PJ Maximum Kirchner, who will assume in December. Massa said that they demonstrated that they can achieve results “by working together, summoning unity of Buenos Aires and Argentines, putting the care of citizens as a priority ”.

He asked to prioritize “the care of Argentines over political fights.” He said that they must “continue working in this way” and that this year he must “find them united and vaccinated” against coronavirus.

In an act with an electoral tone, he said that the country is currently at “a particular moment, at a turning point of exit” from the pandemic. He spoke of “three tasks that have to do with protect citizens, how to protect work ”. He mentioned programs that the Government granted during the pandemic such as the Emergency Assistance Program for Work and Production (ATP) and the Emergency Family Income (IFE).

He also expressed that “caring and protecting is vaccinating” against COVID-19. He rejected criticism of the Government, which he called “attempts to try to delegitimize what represented the challenge of governing in a pandemic and trying to take care of all Argentines.”

He also argued that “caring for and protecting Argentines is also provide security ”, and highlighted the delivery of patrol cars in San Fernando. He supported “the decision of the President to put funds in the province of Buenos Aires to provide security to the neighbors” and the resources “that the province transfers to municipalities to carry out purchases” for this area.


Brands veto influencers who supported the Green Party in electoral ban

The consequences

Seven of the 103 influencers who supported PVEM were part of the talent agency Epik Talent. Its founder and CEO Pablo Ahumada assures that, after seeing the content that the actors he represented shared on social networks, he made the decision to stop working with them.

“We are nonpartisan and we are in favor of free voting, but we do not share or support the positions of the people involved,” he says. “The fact that we work with them does not make us responsible for their actions or mistakes. What they did does not match the values ​​that we have as a company ”.

“We already had to take actions, for the moment leaving the labor relationship, it no longer exists with them, that is the reality,” adds Ahumada, who assures that he had contact with brands and companies with which he works to explain the decisions that had been made. within the agency and, thus, avoid the loss of clients.

“At this very close moment, no one wants to associate with someone who was involved, we spoke with them (clients) and communicated our position. The relationship did not end as companies, “adds the founder of Epik Talent.

Claudia Benassini, a professor at LaSalle University and a specialist in digital marketing, assures that this strategy of using influencers is something that will be imitated in the 2024 elections “because it is pulling people, it has proven to be effective, although that does not mean that it is ethics, but the idea of ​​staying in the mind of the voter becomes attractive for political parties.

However, the experts consulted agree that it is a practice that, beyond benefiting the parties, ends up harming the influencer marketing industry, since although it has had significant growth in recent years, there are still brands that do not trust in strategy, they see it as a taboo.

“These things affect, they become a bad image for our work. Brands are going to end up not hiring influencers and that hurts us all ”, says Gerardo Sordo.

In this sense, the industry proposal is clear: advertising through influencers and content creators must be regulated and transparent. In Mexico there must be a law that allows the effective management of these strategies.

Gustavo Madero – The Financier

The PAN senator Gustavo Madero on Wednesday qualified the opposition alliance made up of the parties of the PRI-PAN-PRD as a ‘failure’, since they could not snatch the qualified majority from Brunette in the Chamber of Deputies.

In his article published in the newspaper Heraldo de Chihuahua entitled “Those who wanted to stop Brunette … we have very little to celebrate! ”, The former national leader of the PAN He recalled that, in 2018, Morena did not have a qualified majority.

Madero established that it is a ‘self-deception‘claim that they took away the qualified majority from AMLO to prevent him from modifying the constitution and only requires a few deputies of the PRI to approve the reforms.

“Although it hurts us to admit it, Brunette and its allies will continue to approve the budget, all the initiatives and legal changes they want, with their own votes (same as now); and they will be able to modify the constitution and the appointments if they convince a few legislators from the PRI or MC (the same as now), ”Madero wrote.

He stated that PAN members themselves do not dare to admit that Morena and his allies hold most of the seats and the alliance was only able to snatch 34 of the 218 districts that the icing on the cake in 2018.

“Creating a new opposition majority was not achieved. Brunette is still the majority and the party with the highest preferences at the national level ”, he agreed.

He stressed that in 2018 the PAN-PRI-PRD-PVEM obtained 28 million of the votes, 50 percent of the 55.9 million votes cast; While in this 2021, the tripartite alliance achieved 22 million votes, 46.7 percent of the preferences.

“The conclusion then is that in the Legislative Power things will change very little. Laws and budgets will take them out AMLO no problem, for qualified votes you will have to use other resources (which you do have) “, he indicated

“Morena has a free way to sweep in 2024”

Madero Muñoz asserted that the alliance received a ‘beating‘in the states since they could only win two of the 15 gubernatorial offices at stake,’ erasing ‘them from the political map in the country.

After the victory of the left in several states, Madero pointed out that Morena has a free hand to devastate in 2024 and take the presidency.

“The conclusion is that the local executive powers gave us a beating, winning eleven of the 15 governorships. Those eleven new territories will facilitate the election of 2024, “he said.

He assured that the triumphs obtained were an achievement of electoral machinery and engineering and the anti-Morena narrative; not the country’s project proposal, the leadership of congruent candidates, or parties with internal vitality, or the closeness of the people to the citizens.

“That leadership is difficult to emerge today from the parties co-opted by leaders with self-centered projects. Difficult to arise from schools and universities. And as long as it does not arise from somewhere, the future will continue to revolve around the President Andrés Manuel, who has managed to articulate a project and continues to be the hope for a majority ”, he concluded.
