How were the debates of candidates for senators of A Dos Voces

Gustavo Beliz (Frente por un Nuevo País), Rodolfo Terragno (La Alianza) and Alfredo Bravo (ARI-Nuevo Milenio) were present at the September 2001 debate. The topics discussed were the economic crisis, the recession, the institutional crisis and the eventual formation of a government of national unity with the PJ. The date of the debate was only three months before the social outbreak occurred December of that year. It is that the country was already on fire and the agenda of the meeting shows it.

That night the ARI candidate and that of the Front for a New Country had strong interdictions, especially after Beliz reproached Bravo for having promoted an amnesty law for the prisoners of La Tablada. But the latter was not silent and told Béliz: “You would have to remember all your steps in politics, he is a very mutant man, very hygienic, he changes his shirt every time he takes a bath.” On the other hand, while Terragno explained why he had left the government, Béliz pointed out: “You didn’t leave, they threw you out.”

In October 2007 there were Daniel Filmus (FpV), Ricardo Gil Lavedra (UCR), María Eugenia Estenssoro (Civic Coalition -ARI), Carlos Melconian (PRO). They debated on “Security and Social Inclusion”, “Health and Education”, and on the “Economic and Social Model”, but the most recurrent theme was the autonomy of the City of Buenos Aires and the partnership. Within these items, at that time there was already talk of the transfer of the police to the City, and also of autonomy with regard to justice, port, games and transport.

In October 2013 they debated in the studies of TN the candidates for senators for CABA Daniel Filmus (FpV), Gabriela Michetti (PRO) and Pino Solanas (UNEN). The great absentee was Juan Cabandié (FpV). In that debate, the applause and the ironic laughter that came from the rostrum turned into a war. Carrió, who had gone there in support of Solanas since at that time they both belonged to the same space, was smiling when Filmus said that large companies had recovered in recent years. The UNEN rostrum loudly applauded Pino’s fiery words, while the Kirchnerists booed him. “From Pino you are becoming a bonsai,” said Filmus, and his ranks celebrated.
