CÓRDOBA.- In the midst of a crisis in his cabinet and with demonstrations of rejection in the streets, Javier Milei will lead today from this city the event for May 25 without the approved Base Law and without progress in the ten-point pact to which he had summoned the 24 governors on March 1, when he opened the ordinary sessions in Congress. The President will be sole speaker of a day in which he will once again target “the political caste” for considering that it hindered his reforms, as they confided yesterday to THE NATION sources close to the head of state.

Far from seeking agreements with Congress to guarantee the advancement of the Base Law and the fiscal package, the President will once again distinguish between politicians who he considers to be in favor of change and those who are not. He will appeal to the “principle of revelation,” his theory to explain the initial failure of what was the omnibus law.

The President will only see one governor, who will be the host, Martin Llaryora. The invitation to the grand pact was suspended until the outcome of the legislative initiatives is known. He also conditioned the changes in the cabinet to what happens with the Bases Law, whose treatment in the Senate could only be finalized during the first week of June. However, Milei gave a signal that could accelerate the departure of Nicolás Posse, his chief of staff. “We have to see if he is within the logic of the protocol,” responded the President when asked yesterday about the presence of the coordinating minister at this afternoon’s event in Córdoba.

In parallel to his fight with Congress and the uncertainty in which he plunged his cabinet, a reception with protests awaits Milei in Córdoba, which forced the authorities to reinforce the security operation. Since yesterday there is a wide deployment of troops at the same time that posters were seen against the libertarian adjustment of the Association of State Workers (ATE), one of the state unions that called to mobilize in the streets to reject the presidential visit.

“It seems to me to be a somewhat pathetic and undemocratic expression,” the Minister of the Interior declared to Cadena 3. Guillermo Francos, regarding organized mobilization. “I am concerned if there is a position like the one expressed about trying to prevent access to the President, on the part of ATE. I I suppose that the province of Córdoba will take the appropriate measures so that this does not happen,” the official added. Regarding security, the province maintained that they “collaborate”, but that the operation was designed by the “presidential security teams.” That is, the forces coordinated by Patricia Bullrich.

Preparations for the event on May 25 in Córdoba

The governor Martin Llaryora will return from Río Cuarto -alternate capital, where the local event takes place- to receive it and join the ceremony. “Córdoba has to be institutionally prepared to receive these events and invite the whole family. The coming of a President is always special,” she described, stressing that he is a “institutional act”. There will be music bands and chocolate.
