Graciela Ocaña invited Lousteau to an act at the Buenos Aires House of Culture, with the electoral negotiations as a backdrop
The national senator Martín Lousteau (UCR-Evolución) and Graciela Ocaña (Public Trust) shared an official act today and encouraged the versions of a possible electoral agreement to face in the PASO of Together for Change the Buenos Aires Minister of Government, Jorge Macri, for the succession of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. These are two allies of the head of government and who are also listed by the Buenos Aires succession.
As Infobae learned from official sources in the city of Buenos Aires, the agreement between the two is imminent. The leader would agree to decline her application and join the proposal promoted by the leader of Evolución, but the negotiation is not yet closed. “The two share an electorate. If she does not compete, Lousteau can summon those voters”, explained spokespersons linked to one of the parties.
Specifically, in the latest Opinaia poll, headed by Jorge Macri, with 24%, and closely followed by the radical senator, with 22%, Ocaña appears with 5%. In another survey, from the CB consultancy, the national deputy has 3.5%, while her possible ally adds 14.9% and Mauricio Macri’s cousin 18.6%. In such an even dispute, every vote counts.

The staging of the principle of agreement occurred in the meeting that Ocaña has led in recent years at the Casa de La Cultura for the World Day of Awareness of Abuse and Mistreatment in Old Age. The organization is in charge of the Legislator of Public Confidence Sol Méndez, who is President of the Senior Citizens’ Forum. Méndez, who has a mandate until 2025, is one of the three seats that the leader has in the Buenos Aires parliament.
There are also Diego García Vilas, who is president of the Vamos Juntos Bloc, which is ending and cannot be renewed; and Natalia Fidel, who also concludes her term without the possibility of re-election.
These are novelties that occur simultaneously with other movements in the city of Buenos Aires within the framework of the race for the succession of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. In fact, this morning Lousteau broadcast a campaign spot and Ricardo López Murphy, who was listed in the Buenos Aires dispute, acknowledged that if Patricia Bullrich invited him to be his running mate as vice president, he would accept.
Beyond the speculation and negotiations, the clock is speeding up for Lousteau and Ocaña -whose mandate in the National Chamber of Deputies ends in two years-, since June 24 also expires the deadline for the registration of candidates .
