The Buenos Aires legislators of the PRO were the first to respond to the national government and the Frente de Todos bloc in the Legislature, which considered “Inexplicable the rejection made by the Buenos Aires Executive to the call for dialogue carried out by the National Executive Power” to reach an agreement for the funds for the police of the City of Buenos Aires.

“Inexplicable is the convocation of the national government, author of the most voracious and arbitrary withdrawal of resources that is remembered from the City of Buenos Aires”Agustín Forchieri, first vice president of the Buenos Aires Legislature, said in a statement that he multiplied on social networks. The answer also came after President Alberto Fernández pointed against the Buenos Aires Head of Government and assured that “Rodríguez Larreta unnecessarily generates a conflict and should be more generous.”

“We absolutely support the decision of the head of government not to participate in a media and cynical show that hides the decision to move forward unceremoniously on the autonomy of our district”, Stated the Buenos Aires legislators. In addition, they noted: “We trust that the Supreme Court will do justice and restore to all residents the funds for security, health and education that Kirchnerism appropriated for the sole purpose of destroying a district governed by the opposition. Some of the legislators who uploaded it to their networks were Daniel Del Sol and Agustín Forchieri.

In this sense, the legislator stated that “It is surprising that the legislators of the Frente de Todos have endorsed this very serious outrage” since “a long time ago, far from working for all and all the inhabitants of the City, they attack in droves for that purpose.”

On Sunday afternoon the deputy head of the Buenos Aires Government, Diego Santilli, he assured that they will “uphold the proposal in the Supreme Court” stating that “the law is unconstitutional.” “It is arbitrary, discretionary and undermines the autonomy of the City of Buenos Aires”, He indicated in dialogue with TN.

As Santilli explained, the City “He lost 150 million pesos a day”Since the decree of the national government became effective. In that sense, he argued that during 2021 they will lose “65 billion pesos“And highlighted:” It is a lot of money for Argentines who live and work in this city. It is not sustainable for us ”.

Asked about how the Buenos Aires government will manage with this reduction in pesos, he maintained that “when one manages well, one must plan and not spend too much.” “We are going to have less income. We have to use the money that was for works, to support the security service “he explained.

“We are going to stop doing projects projected for these four years based on the money we do not have to support security. So we are going to cover the lack of resources. We are going to have to bet on a very strong austerity until the conflict is resolved, “he said.

Earlier, the Frente de Todos bloc in the Legislature had issued a statement saying that “the Head of Government insists on transforming a strictly institutional issue – definitively ordering the framework of the transfer of the Federal Police carried out in 2016 in a defective way by Mauricio Macri – in a political conflict ”.

Rodríguez Larreta communicated on Saturday in a letter his decision not to attend the meeting called by the National Executive to begin dealing with the transfer of the police to the capital district, noting that he raised before the Supreme Court “the unconstitutionality” of the sanctioned rule by Congress.

The Buenos Aires bloc of the Frente de Todos expressed “His deepest concern, in the face of the inexplicable rejection made by the Porteño Executive to the call for dialogue carried out by the National Executive Power, within the framework of Law 27,606.”

National”.

In the statement they indicated that “there is no valid basis for the rejection of the dialogue, the judicialization carried out by the City Government, since -in no way- there has been a condition for said call, nor does it imply any waiver of the judicial action” .
