The different spaces of the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation Negotiations will begin in the coming days to define their authorities, the creation of the interblocks and the integration of the commissionswith a view to the formation that this parliamentary body will have from December 10.
The first issue to be defined is that of the presidency of the Chamber, a place that, according to parliamentary tradition, would be in the hands of the future national ruling party.even though it is not the largest volume space in the new integration.
As an immediate background, In December 2015, the Front for Victory (before its partial dismemberment in February 2016) had a greater number of seats than Cambiemos, and also gave the presidency to Emilio Monzófrom the PRO.
On this occasion the action and ownership of the Chamber would be repeated would fall to a deputy from Libertad Avanza, the PRO or an independentaccording to the distribution of other spaces of power.
According to sources consulted by Télam, Among the names that are being considered to occupy that place are Oscar Zago and Guillermo Montenegro, from LLA; Florencio Randazzo, of “schiarettism”; Miguel Pichetto, from the Federal Republican Meeting; and Cristian Ritondo, from the PRO. The latter, according to sources, would for now be outlined with greater chances.
Likewise, the Frente de Todos assures that the gesture of giving the presidency to a representative of the ruling party does not imply “a blank check” for whoever is appointed, especially in regards to “the issue of personnel and the relationship with the legislative unions.” “.
Regarding the blocks and interblocks, from the sector that won the elections they analyze the convenience of creating a union between LLA and the PRO sector that supported Javier Milei, in a bench that would add between 67 and 70 deputies: the 37 of LLA and about 30/33 of the PRO and other monoblocks that today make up JxC, such as that of Ricardo López Murphy or that of the Olmedista from Salta Raúl Zapata.
The rest of JxC partners are currently thinking about a “center-democratic” interblock that has between 55 and 60 members, and in which the 35 radicals would converge; 10 of the PRO closest to Horacio Rodríguez Larreta; 3 from Monzó and Margarita Stolbizer’s space; the aforementioned Pichetto and the deputies belonging to new provinces that JxC will govern, such as San Luis, San Juan or Chubut.
In the outline that they are working on from that sector, they aspire to convince the Civic Coalition to remain within the interblock to reach 60, although Elisa Carrió announced on Sunday that for her “Together for Change was broken.”
The current ruling party, meanwhile, aspires to maintain its unity, beyond the fact that doing so “from the plain” is not the same as from power.
They hope to keep together the 105 deputies that make up it and who come from spaces such as Kirchnerism, La Cámpora, the Frente Renovador, the governors, social movements and union representativesamong others.
Meanwhile, the missionary Renewal Front of Concord, which in the October election integrated its list of national deputies to the ticket that had Sergio Massa as president, will continue as its own bloc, with its 4 members.
Other provincial spaces that will have representatives, and that must also define whether they will group together or not, are the Córdoba ruling party, with 6 deputies – including Randazzo -: the Santacruceño, with 2; Socialism (integrates the alliance that will govern Santa Fe), with 2, and Neuquén and Rí Negro, with one each.
In the parity of forces in the new Chamber, the five deputies from the Left will play an important role in forming the quorum and voting on the projects.
