For now, Alberto Fernández will not make changes to the Cabinet

After the wave of resignations of at least ten ministers and officials who respond to Cristina Kirchner, President Alberto Fernández met with his closest collaborators, and decided that “for now”, he will not make changes in the national Cabinet.

“The television channels found out about the resignations before us. In the Casa Rosada there was no document or formal resignation that has arrived in an administrative manner, ”they said from the Government, as reported Infobae.

In the midst of the barrage of versions, the ministers Claudio Moroni (Work) and Sabina Frederic (Security), spread messages of support for the president on Twitter.

“My total and unconditional support for President Alberto Fernández for all that he represented as the synthesis of what the people voted in 2019,” said Moroni.

The news of the resignation of the ministers “Wado” De Pedro, of Justice Martín Soria and of Science and Technology, Roberto Salvarezza, of Culture, Tristán Bauer, together with the head of PAMI, Luana Volnovich and that of ANSES, Fernanda Raverta, it was known this Wednesday after the act led by Alberto Fernández accompanied by the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, in a show he supports his team.

As the minutes passed, the Minister of the Environment, Juan Cabandié and the head of Aerolineas Argentinas, Pablo Ceriani, and Martín Sabbatella, head of ACUMAR, joined. The officials who respond to Alberto Fernández did not join the strategy promoted by Cristina Kirchner to pressure the President to reform the Cabinet. The move joins other similar gestures in the governments of the province of Buenos Aires and Santa Cruz, also managed by Kirchner governors, which took place at the beginning of the week, a few hours after the defeat in the PASO.


After learning of the resignations of the officials who respond to the vice president, Fernández led a meeting with Cafiero, the Legal and Technical Secretary of the Presidency, Juan Zabaleta (Social Development), Gabriel Katopodis (Public Works), Matías Lammens (Tourism and Sports) , Carla Vizzotti (Health), Sabina Frederic (Security), Claudio Moroni (Work), Felipe Solá (Chancellery) and Cecilia Todesca. Despite having shared an act, Guzmán did not attend the meeting.

Before that, the president had a brief meeting with Aníbal Fernández, Cristina Kirchner’s former chief of staff. “I came to speak with the President of politics. We talked about politics, he didn’t offer me anything, I didn’t ask him for anything, “he replied at the end of the meeting. In addition, he argued that “resignations are symbolic, they are made available to the President” and that, therefore, it is the first president who will define whether to accept them or not. And he assured: “There is no break in the Government.”
