Alberto Fernández resists his presidential candidacy, while Cristina Kirchner speculates and gives rise to the growth of the clamor operation
Cristina Kirchner maintains public silence about her candidacy, after Kirchnerism launched a battery of requests for her to review her decision not to compete in this year’s elections. She plays mystery and lets the operative clamor grow that exalts her figure at the same rate that it dwarfs that of Alberto Fernández.
The presidential formula that was formed in 2019 is completely broken. The reunion at the opening of sessions of Congress was better than expected within the ruling party, but it remained in the memory as an unrepeatable fragment of a bankrupt and completely worn out government.
Kirchnerism makes the operation grow a little more every day so that Cristina Kirchner accepts being a candidate for president. The leadership tries to bury that effusive and histrionic speech that the Vice President made after being convicted in the Highway case, in which she assured that in 2023 she would not be a candidate for anything. Not a president, not a governor, not a legislator. To nothing.
From that moment to this part, Kirchnerism triggered a story to establish that the federal justice system and the Supreme Court want to ban Cristina Kirchner. That they want to take her off the field. There are no valid arguments to support the theory because the sentence to 6 years in prison and disqualification from holding public office for life still has two appeal instances.

In other words, without a final ruling, the Vice President is in a position to be a candidate and be on any ballot. Kirchnerism already believed the theory and repeats it like a mantra. It does so forcefully, such as when it managed to install the creation of a commission at the meeting of the national board of the Frente de Todos to ask CFK to be a candidate and the title of the final document where it spoke of “proscription”.
The last formal request was made by the Buenos Aires government Chief of Staff, Martin Insaurralde, on Sunday morning. “We want Cristina to be the candidate for president, she is the most qualified person to govern Argentina and build a better future,” he said. Overwhelming.
At the end of the weekend it was the leader of La Cámpora, Andrés “Cuervo” Larroque, who insisted on the idea again. “Cristina has to be a candidate,” he declared. For a few days, the leaders of Kirchnerism pushed aside their speech the possible will of the Vice President in the face of the decision to compete.
Before they talked about “not asking Cristina for everything” and now they strongly install the idea that she should be the candidate who competes this year. There is objective data that supports proposal K. The Vice President is the figure of Peronism that gathers the most votes on her behalf. She could be the most voted candidate in a STEP.

The problem that the consultants point out is that in a general election and, eventually, in a ballot, CFK is not competitive. He would lose to any opposition candidate. With these data in hand, many leaders speculate about the actions of the Vice President and her needs to preserve the territorial power of the force that she leads. Especially in the province of Buenos Aires.
This Monday the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillof, will open the ordinary sessions of the Legislature. In the official ranks they hope that there will be some public gesture from the president regarding a possible CFK candidacy, beyond the fact that he has been one of the first to express the need for her to be a candidate. The former Minister of Economy is a founding partner of the operative outcry.
This week Cristina Kirchner will have full centrality. On Thursday the Federal Oral Court 2, which sentenced the Vice President in the Highway case, will publish its arguments. From there, the defense may appeal and the ruling will be reviewed by the Federal Chamber of Criminal Cassation. A new instance of the legal process will begin to pass.
It is still unknown if Kirchnerism will mobilize or not that day. What is ruled out is that there will be massive support on social networks and through the media from the leadership. It will be the first opportunity of the week to ratify the idea of ”proscription” and to carefully inflate the operative clamor.

A day later, the Vice President will travel to Viedma to receive an honorary doctorate from the National University of Río Negro (UNRN). The details are still being finalized, but it will be the moment when CFK sits down in front of a microphone again and the Frente de Todos listens carefully if he offers any indication of his possible candidacy.
Finally, on Saturday the hard Kirchnerism is organizing an act in Avellaneda under the slogan “Fight and return”, the same one that Peronism used in times when General Juan Domingo Perón had been banned, which led to his decision that Héctor Cámpora compete in the elections and be their delegate in power. The militant plenary will ask for “Cristina 2023”.
In parallel, Alberto Fernández resists the K attack against the possibility of his re-election. Kirchnerism is advancing fiercely against the Casa Rosada and exerting strong pressure so that the President lowers his candidacy. They want him out of the electoral field as quickly as possible, but Fernández is not willing to give up and would extend the definition until May.
The winks that the President made to Kirchnerism during the opening of ordinary sessions were useless. Her gestures did not calm the advanced K. In truth, there is absolutely nothing that can stop her because her relationship with Fernández is totally deteriorated and she has no future. So, her objective is only one: to renounce her re-election in public.

There are phrases that irritate the toughest K leaders. One of them was expressed by the Head of State during an interview that he gave to channel C5N over the weekend. “Yes, I see myself in the STEP. Everything is weird until it happens sometime,” he stated. In addition, he stressed that if there is one better than him, he will run. The President began to play with the annoyance of his internal rivals.
He gave as an example the decision of former president Néstor Kirchner to support Cristina Kirchner in 2007, when she ran for the first time as a presidential candidate. “It was rare for a President to propose that his wife be the candidate to succeed him. And it happened. And Argentina evidently did not do badly. She wet their ear.
Alberto Fernández’s candidacy has no support and provokes the advance of Kirchnerism so that he does not compete Intimacies of the photo of Patricia Bullrich and dissident radicals: just an image or the germ of an electoral agreement?
