The elected vice-governor of Santa Fe, Gisela Scaglia, said that she knows Guillermo Francos, the advisor and possible Minister of the Interior of the elected president Javier Milei and trusted that this link will be auspicious for the province as of December 10. Although she highlighted the performance of La Libertad Avanza (LLA) in the runoff, she warned that, together with Maximiliano Pullaro, they do not make up that space and will fight for the interests of Santa Fe. Regarding the transition between one government and another, she agreed with Mauricio Macri who warned against protests and “the orcs”: “I am sure that difficult times are coming, many sectors are going to take to the streets.”
The former Santa Fe legislator maintained a dialogue with Radiopolis (Radio 2) in relation to the new political scene facing December 10. “I have a lifelong personal relationship with Guillermo Francos – he was surprised – I have known him for years, I trust he will be an important person for Santa Fe,” he said and remarked: “I trust that this long-standing relationship can be positive for the province.” Then, he explained that they met “more than 20 years ago”: “I was very young, I had a personal relationship with someone in his family.”
For Scaglia, Francos are a kind of guarantee. “He is a political person, prepared, who knows politics, he does not reject it and that is important. Understand that governors and provinces are central. His life story is like this, he has accompanied different processes in Argentina. It is going to provide the balance that is needed in governments, it is going to have an important role,” he considered.
In that sense, he also valued the voting deputies for La Libertad Avanza (LLA) Romina Diez and Nicolás Mayoraz. “We are going to call them with Maxi, they are the ones who won the election, they were the ones who started this,” he said.but clarified: “We are not part of them, we are Together for Change, we lost the Paso, then a sector that is my party accompanied Javier Milei but it was a triumph of democracy, of the people.”
Ten assured that they are going to “analyze what is best for the people of Santa Fe“We are going to defend them” and warned that he is analyzing some ideas that raise doubts, such as public works, taking into account that there are 3 national routes in the province that “need the national government.” However, he prioritized calm and prudence when making evaluations: “Nor can we ask a government in transition for such quick responses today, we have to wait for them to assume and take concrete measures.”
Regarding the national budget, he highlighted: “That the co-participation, with the transfers, must be complied with, we must carry the Ansés debt with Santa Fe, the discretionary transfers never benefited Santa Fe, we could say that we were always punished.”
Regarding the issue of security, he requested that “the national security plan be shared with that of the province.” “It is not known who will be the Minister of Security, hopefully it will be Patricia Bullrich because he knows what we want to do or Luis Petri”, he stated and underlined the idea of working together and in coordination.
Finally, she was consulted about the statements of Mauricio Macri, who highlighted that after the runoff “today there is a profound popular mandate”, which is “led by young people who are not going to stay at home if these gentlemen start throwing tons of stones.” . Scaglia responded: “I am sure that difficult times are coming, many sectors are going to take to the streets. I ask that the mobilization and reaction of the national government be peaceful.”
After considering that the protests are the “modus operandis” of the “left and Kirchnerism,” he noted: “They also did it to Mauricio.”
“People have to be patient, voting is important, but we don’t change from one day to the next, we need a lot of time. “No one is going to fix Argentina from one day to the next or in a year,” He launched and concluded: “I wish you much success, but it is not going to be magical.”
