Mauricio Macri continues to send signals in the midst of the internship in Together for Change. This Wednesday, the former president returned to the province of Buenos Aires. Along with deputies María Eugenia Vidal and Cristian Ritondo, and the mayor of La Plata, Julio Garro, he toured the hydraulic works of the “El Gato” stream.
Later, the community chief commented, he walked the streets of Tolosa “to talk with neighbors and merchants” about the “impact of the economic crisis on their daily lives.”

The reappearance of the former president in the Province -it is not the first- is not a minor fact. On the one hand, because he returns to a territory where, according to multiple surveys, he maintains high levels of rejection. On the other, because he did it together with María Eugenia Vidal and Cristian Ritondo, in the midst of the strong internal opposition that the opposition coalition is going through for the candidacies.
María Eugenia Vidal has expressed her intention to compete for the presidency in 2023 and Ritondo, her candidate in the province, announced that she will go for the governorship. His intentions collide with the plans of other members of the party that was born in the Federal Capital, such as Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, Diego Santilli and Patricia Bullrich.
Meanwhile, Macri keeps open the possibility of going for the “second half” and builds bridges with Javier Milei. The deputy of La Libertad Avanza, who has the doors closed in Together for Change, invited the former president to his space and even suggested going to an internship. “If he beats me, I’ll tag along,” he said.
For now, Macri did not speak of an alliance, but his approach to the economist arouses misgivings in the coalition they formed with Elisa Carrió and Ernesto Sanz in 2015.
