Don’t Blame Alberto Fernández For Argentina’s Implosion

With the PASO primaries now apparently a distant memory, a self-inflicted political crisis has taken over the Fernández-Fernández administration. Apparently confirming theories that suggested it was Cristina Fernández de Kirchner who was really in charge all along, this internal tension in the ruling Frente de Todos has placed the vice-president at the center of the stage once again. How powerful is she, really? At the same time, the notion of the emergence of an “albertismo” has taken hold, suggesting the president could be building his own power structure to repeal the Kirchnerite attack. Alberto was at his weakest since taking office on election night after suffering the equivalent of a technical knockout at the hands of the main opposition coalition, Juntos, but also the eternally unpopular Left and even the liberals of Javier Milei and José Luis Espert, all of which had relatively successful elections. How strong is he, really?

President Alberto Fernández’s Ban On Meat Exports To Contain Inflation Won’t Work

Most people appear rational and well-intentioned, once you get them into a conversation. That’s the case for the political class as well, both within the ruling Frente de Todos coalition and the opposition under the Juntos por el Cambio banner. It even counts for the Argentine brand of liberals led by economists José Luis Espert and Javier Millei, and for representatives from the left and leaders of the social movements such as Juan Grabois. Yet, when observed from outside as they try to govern the indomitable Republic of Argentina, it seems as if some of the decisions are absolutely irrational. More often than not, these apparent self-inflicted wounds are ascribed to ideological positions or political convenience. Yet, and while those cannot and should not be discarded, the immediacy of the urgent many times takes priority over the long-term necessities that our poor and embattled nation requires, if indeed the underlying conditions are there for a prosperous future.

Maduro, Guaidó And Alberto Fernández: The Beginning Of A New Phase In Venezuela?

The actual complexities of reality are difficult to put into structured, cohesive arguments, leading public debate toward simpler and generally binary discussions. When confronting a level of extreme complexity such as the Venezuelan crisis, Argentina’s political actors tend to align themselves ideologically: to different degrees those close to the ruling Frente de Todos coalition defend the regime of Nicolás Maduro, while supporters of the opposing Juntos por el Cambio coalition consider it Venezuela’s government to be a dictatorship that must be toppled by any means possible. Hardliners in the opposition close to former president Mauricio Macri continue to use the electoral slogan that “Kirchnerism will take us down the road to Venezuela,” while their counterparts in the pan-Peronist coalition led by Alberto Fernández and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner deny evident human rights violations perpetrated by the Maduro regime, continuing to describe it as “democratic.”
