In last Wednesday’s session, legislator Orlando Arduh (Together for Change) put an end to his initiative to modify –in a limited way– the ‘traps’ of regulation 10,406 that prevents the re-election of heads of local governments .
The radical cambiemite ran into an unfavorable scenario that he could not reverse. The Juntos UCR bench did not move from its position of rejection and in the ruling party they definitively lowered their thumb, without reaching the issue for debate in commission.
Given this picture of the situation, Arduh concluded his “battle” for the re-re after exhausting all the instances in the Unicameral for the project to be dealt with.
In fact, in the last plenary session last Wednesday, the opponent was seen to be very active, holding a series of informal dialogues both with his radical peers and with pro-government supporters. There was no way. “The issue is finished,” said an official sword off the record.
In the days prior to the session, Arduh was part of the meeting that his radical and PRO peers held with Senator Luis Juez and Deputy Rodrigo de Loredo in the Juntos UCR bloc.
In that area, the cambiemite threw the subject on the table and received silence from one and evasions from the other. While his radical peers said in a low voice – after the meeting – that it was an “unsuccessful” attempt, because the insurmountable position of rejection among the white berets was already known in advance.
Based on the result of this meeting and the informal dialogues held before and in the middle of last Wednesday’s session, Arduh sent a lengthy audio to the mayors and community chiefs informing them that the re-reelection had no chance of advancing in his legislative treatment.
The head of the JxC bench had shouldered the demand of some 200 territorial leaders of different political persuasions unable to play in the next electoral round due to the “stocks” of the law that sets the limit of two consecutive terms.
“I want to highlight that Together for Change always accompanied me with this reform and with the occasional legislator, but there is a resounding no to treat it. This reform is necessary because there is a law that is very difficult to apply, but they refused to debate it and are even afraid to refute or substantiate positions,” Arduh told the community chiefs who supported his initiative.
“I think they do not know the reality that is lived in the interior, as a provincial legislator, that I will no longer be next year, I did everything in my power,” he said in his message addressed to those responsible for smaller districts.
In his “patria”, Arduh capitalized on the support of this representative group of community chiefs and restored relations with the candidate for governor of the opposition front. As they admit from the environment of the radical cambiemite, Judge asked him to work for him in the campaign.
In this plane, Arduh told his own that he is in the bid to be the vice leader of the Civic Front. The condition is: if De Loredo does not join the provincial formula, he will try. He has in his political trajectory to be an articulator with the leaders of the interior.
For now, in the internal cambiemita the name of De Loredo sounds first, at the request of the radical mayors, to empower Judge in the hand-to-hand competition with Peronism.
If the evolutionist decides to only play in the compulsa for the capital’s mayor, they write down to complete the provincial formula: Marcos Carasso (head of the UCR), Marcos Ferrer (mayor of the Redista of Río Tercero), Soledad Carrizo (deputy who left mestrismo and he went over to the Deleredista ranks) and Arduh himself.
