President Mauricio Macri , who aspires for re-election with Together for Change , and the presidential pre-candidate for Kirchnerism, Alberto Fernández , with the Frente de Todos , will close their candidates' campaigns this week in Cordoba with two acts in the provincial capital with the aim of capturing the Cordovan vote in the next primary, open, simultaneous and mandatory ( PASO ).
Cordoba , the country's second largest electoral district behind the province of Buenos Aires , brings together 2,946,060 voters, 8.7% of the total.
Macri , who has as its running mate Peronist Senator Miguel Pichetto , will arrive next Wednesday in Córdoba to complete the closure of the local campaign, with a message aimed at consolidating the accession that led him to the Presidency of the Nation in the ballotage of 2015, government sources said.
Fernández , Chief of Staff of the governments of Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, will also close her campaign in Córdoba , but one day after Macri , with the aim of raising the percentage of voters in a province whose authorities reported “discrimination” by Kirchnerist governments.
By tomorrow, Tuesday, Pichetto is scheduled to arrive in Córdoba to perform proselytizing events and inaugurate a local Republican Peronism.
In these elections Cordoba renews 9 deputies national and, at next Sunday's PASOS , local voters will find themselves in the dark room with 17 ballots from 13 political sectors, of which only two compete in internal.
Together for Change , with the presidential formula Macri-Pichetto , the official list of pre-candidates for national deputies is the president of the interbloc of national deputies of Cambiemos , radical Mario Negri ; lawyer Soher El Sukaría (PRO) and Victor Hugo Romero (UCR).
That list will compete in internal with two other ballots: 'We are consensus and renewal' that leads as the first pre-candidate for Javier Fabre , followed by Paola Campitelli and Sebastían Laborde , while the 'White and Roja' list promotes Miguel Nicolás , Carla Carta and Luis Brouwer de Koning .
The provincial government, which responds to Peronist Governor Juan Schiaretti , could not achieve the armed of a presidential proposal with Federal Alternative and left its adherents free of action to vote for the presidential formula. In this framework it carries a short list of Hacos por Córdoba and promotes provincial legislator Carlos Gutierrez for national deputies; civil servant Claudia Martínez and provincial legislator Oscar González .
Meanwhile, the Frente de Todos , with the presidential formula Alberto Fernández-Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, is running for the president of the Association of Small and Medium Entrepreneurs (Apyme), Eduardo Fernández ; to the national deputy Gabriela Esté and to the head the Trade Union Association of Employees of Commerce (AGEC), Pablo Chacón.
The Federal Consensus list, with Roberto Lavagna-Juan Manuel Urtubey as presidential formula, has Roberto Birri (Socialist Party); Betiana Cabrera Fasolis (Libres del Sur) and Pablo Villanueva (GEN) on its ballot.
