Before the public hearing, the Corenave insisted that it is unconstitutional not to elect a queen in Guaymallén

Maximiliano Legrand, lawyer for Corenave and Coreguay, explained that it all began in 2021 when Marcelino Iglesias, mayor of Guaymallén, decided to depart from the tradition of the Harvest in Mendoza and eliminated the election of the queen of that municipality. In any case, a parallel party was held, in which Julieta Lonigro was crowned as representative of the commune, although she could not participate in any of the official acts, nor in the central act and the election of the National Queen of the Harvest .

After the approval of the ordinance that eliminates the election of a queen in the Guaymallén Harvest Festival, the former sovereigns filed an administrative appeal to challenge the measure.

“The Supreme Court said that the ordinance by which the municipality had abstained from the election of its queen should not apply because it would be unconstitutionalLegrand explained, adding: “That situation It will be resolved in full in Courtprior to a hearing where all parties will present their reasons why the contested ordinance should or should not be governed”.

unconstitutional ordinance

The Corenave and Coreguay representative said: “We are going to insist that the ordinance it is unconstitutional.
