Francos confirmed that the Government will carry out an electoral reform: “52 million dollars cannot be spent on a PASO”

Chief of Staff Guillermo Francos said at a business event that electoral reform is one of the main objectives of the La Libertad Avanza government for the coming months. Although he did not specify dates, he said that “it is not possible for us to have 600 political parties in Argentina,” which generate an expense of “52 million dollars” every two years and that “we are going to put an end to these scams.”

In his presentation at the Buenos Aires City Convention Center at the meeting organized by IAE Business School, the business school of Universidad Austral, after explaining the favorable expectations raised by the RIGI (Large Investment Incentive Regime) included in the Ley Bases recently approved by the National Congress and that the instability in the financial markets due to the rise of the dollar in the last week “does not seem worrying to us because what happened in these days can pass,” he assured that the Executive is working on other initiatives.

“We are taking on other projects to be more serious. What is it like with political parties in Argentina, that we have 600 parties?he asked, before listing the enormous expense that the Open, Simultaneous and Mandatory Primaries represent for the State.It cannot be that 52 million dollars are spent on a PASO. We came to put an end to these scams, we have to get our act together politically. Otherwise, this anti-political disgust that led us to the Government could turn against us if we don’t do something about it.”

In the dialogue with Dean Carolina Dams under the motto “The creation of work, from the ethical imperative to the necessary consensus”, Francos also took stock of Javier Milei’s almost 7 months in power. “They have been 7 difficult, complex months, a whole learning process. How to arrive with leadership from a space without a political structure, how to build consensus. To achieve quality work it is necessary to harmonize. To see a different Argentina, there must be paths of dialogue and consensus. After the parliamentary failure in the first month, from that stumble we then passed two laws of enormous importance for the future”, he assessed.

Regarding an extension of the labour reform that is already outlined in some articles of the Ley Bases, Francos stressed that “it covers a series of aspects that facilitate investments. Simplification at this stage will yield results. There are union leaders who understand that modernisation is necessary; it benefits no one if there are more informal workers than formal ones. We have to move forward even further.”

He also explained that we must “understand how the future holds, we are not sufficiently prepared, technology is going to change us. The possibility of growth is enormous, we are coming from a bad period. Today the President presented the new Literacy Plan and it is incredible that we have been talking about this for 200 years. The results of the PISA tests show that we have gone backwards in education.”

Finally, he asked for greater commitment from businessmen before a full auditorium with more than 1,000 attendees. “It is difficult to attract talent for public service, we cannot ask Argentina for more if we do not manage to involve more and more people. We must know that we can contribute to building. I am also an entrepreneur, I suffer from the State like others. But just as we must develop private activity, we must contribute all the talent in public and private activity,” he said.

In one of the panels that followed the day, entitled “Consensuses necessary for job creation,” the general secretary of the Construction Workers Union, Gerardo Martínez, one of the union members most in tune with the libertarian government, participated, among other guests.

Beyond stressing the need to advance dialogue and consensus for the creation and discussion of employment in our country, Martínez referred critically to the call for the signing of the May Pact that will be signed next Tuesday in Tucumán.

“We cannot wish for the Government to do badly because if that happens, it will be bad for all of us. But consensus, agreement, which is a word that has not been used in Argentina for a long time, is the master key. There has to be a methodology, where the institutionality of dialogue is respected. It should be something serious, not just a photo. People from the Government called me and told me we need to get together and take a photo. We have already had the photo several times. The problem is the content of the call and not waste the opportunity of the will that different sectors have to reach an agreement. Of course it will be in stages because with the structural problems that Argentina has, it will take us at least 10 years to do it,” he said.

The last panel featured Julio Cordero, Secretary of Labor, Employment and Social Security of the Nation. “Trade unionism is absolutely necessary. What one seeks is for unionism to be one of constructive dialogue. There must be a dialogue for a new social contract in Argentina and in the world,” he stressed when asked about his relationship with the unionists grouped in the CGT.

Cordero also said about what is missing from the labor reform that the Government intends to implement that “what was not included in the Bases Law will work with social dialogue. But what came out is the base.”

Regarding the salient points of what has already been approved by Congress, he said: “First, fines that generated litigation and more informality are repealed. It is a transcendental change as proposed in the employment contract. Now it will be more profitable to work than to make a trial. Second, a longer trial period was achieved. And finally, the creation of a severance fund.”
