The Buenos Aires head of government and presidential candidate for Together for Change, Horacio Rodriguez Larretawould have decided to carry out a “concurrent election” in the City of Buenos Aires with Single Ticket.
The resolution comes after questions from former President Mauricio Macri, minutes before, in Radio Rivadaviafrom where he pointed out that the changes in the electoral system “would be going against the neighbors because it is more state spending, more voting time, more lines, two ballot boxes and two ballots.”
In a show of authority and autonomy, Rodríguez Larreta will hold the Buenos Aires elections on the same day, but with a different format than the national ones, according to sources from the Larretista kidney to NA.
This is a decision that corresponds by law to the head of Government, who has the power to adopt it, and that respects the current electoral code of the City (law 6031), which was approved by a large majority by the Legislature in October 2018.
The law establishes the Single Ballot, paper or electronic format, a flag of Together for Change since the beginning of its government in 2015.
During Macri’s administration, the law was discussed and voted on in Congress, in the framework of extraordinary sessions, but the opposition blocked it and did not come out.
The voting system is currently used in provinces such as Córdoba, Santa Fe, Salta, Mendoza and the Federal Capital, and in a CABA executive election in 2015, which ended in a ballot between Rodríguez Larreta and Senator Martín Lousteau.
Meanwhile, in 2019 it was decided to unify with the national one due to the context of that moment.
Taking into account the electoral law of Buenos Aires, the call for the primary, open, simultaneous and mandatory elections (PASO) must be carried out “at least one hundred and twenty (120) calendar days before its completion.”
