Together for Change In recent weeks, its levels of internal conflict, in the public sphere, have decreased. After the tension between Patricia Bullrich and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta reached a maximum, and the UCR’s criticism of Mauricio Macri cracked the limits of coexistence, the PRO summit and the meeting of the National Table of the coalition opened a truce periodalthough with the unit still tested.
Meanwhile, the foundations of the main spaces that make up Together for Change, Think (PRO); Germany (UCR); Hannah Arendt (Civic Coalition) and Encuentro Federal (by Miguel Pichetto), accelerate the elaboration of the Consensus base program to become Government again in 2023in which the teams of all the presidential candidates of the coalition work.

In the last week, the main leaders of the four organizations held two meetings and took a “family photo.” Franco Moccia, president of To think; Agustin Campero, of the German; the “lilito” Fernando Sánchez, for the Hannah Arendtand Eduardo Mondino, of the Peronist federal meeting.
The cambiemite foundations prepare to have a document ready and agreed by December. From there, they would elevate it to the National Table of Together for Change, made up of the main referents of the coalition that must define its presentation.

Although, privately, in some cases they lower the price of the work of the foundations, the main presidential elections of Together for Change (Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, Patricia Bullrich, Gerardo Morales) usually publicly propose the definition of a consensus program as a key to the possibility of reaching the PASO together, but above all to maintain unity in case of a win in the general elections, considering the experience of the Frente de Todos and the Government of Mauricio Macri.

It is perhaps the main effect of this work”, Agustín Campero, from the Alem Foundation, told TN.
In the foundations they warned that the diagnosis of problems and priorities is shared: low growth; high tax pressure; strong inflation; high fiscal deficit; the cost of capital associated with the lack of financing; the stocks; subsidies to energy rates, and institutional deterioration. However, the main concernwhich has deepened in recent months, is the difficulty of opposition foundations to determine the severity of the economic crisis with which 2023 will end and the possible new Government will begin.
“The Argentina is devastated politically, economically and socially. We need a deep cultural change to resume the Argentina of production and work”, said Eduardo Mondino, from Encuentro Federal.
