Yesterday’s result at PASO It lit all the alerts in Kirchnerism. The scenario is much worse than expected and if it is repeated in the general elections the Frente de Todos will lose its own quorum in the Senate Chamber. That is, the vice president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will go from dreaming of having two-thirds to being left without the absolute control that he knew to have these two years.
The lousy electoral result of the Kirchnerism in the six provinces where senators were elected, he left the Front of All at the edge of the abyss. In total, 24 seats are renewed, of which the ruling party has 15 and the opposition with 9. But if the result of the STEP is repeated, a problem will be generated for the vice president.
Kirchnerism needs 37 seats to retain its own quorum, but if yesterday’s numbers are repeated the Front of All would only have 36 seats in the Upper House and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner He would no longer be able to meet only with the legislators of his bench.
Against all odds, Peronism lost in provinces like The Pampa and it had crushing results in Mendoza, Córdoba, Currents, Santa Fe and Chubut. While he won in Catamarca and Tucuman, it is not enough to guarantee a quorum in the Senate. The scenario could even get worse in November. The Senate would be left with 35 senators from Front of All, 31 of Together for Change and 6 independent.
As if that were not enough, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner He must already take it for granted that from December on he will have to confront two tough referents from Together for Change in the venue. One is Luis Judge, the Cordoba who defeated Mario Negri in the internship and that he based his campaign on the slogan “a Judge for Cristina”.
The other is the president of the UCR, Alfredo Cornejo. The former governor of Mendoza will also land in the Upper House to argue face to face with the vice president of the Nation.
Meanwhile, in the Chamber of Deputies the Frente de Todos would drop from 120 legislators to 111 seats.
