A new stage of the provincial government begins today and will be signed by the re-election of Governor Omar Gutiérrez. "The big challenge will be winning in 2019," the governor demanded last night, shortly after winning the MPN's internal election.
"The political project will go in one, the colors are finished in the MPN," he replied in the midst of the euphoria of triumph when Río Negro asked him what he would say to his current deputy governor, Rolando Figueroa, who faced him in the domestic yesterday.
The data published by MPN at the end of this year's edition indicated that it voted about 120,000 people, of whom 62% made it for the Azul de Gutierrez list and 38% for Violeta de Figueroa, with 74,400 compared to 45,600. "It is 30% of the total census of the province and it is the same percentage we have imposed in 2014," Gutiérrez said. Official data showed that, with 60% of the count, Blue was imposed by 57%.
Figueroa prefers silence. His spokesmen have repeated that there has been a fraud. Gutiérrez reminded him that the elections were controlled by 23 judges of the Judiciary and rescued the sanction of the electoral act.
He insisted twice that "there are no winners or losers in MPN".
Gutierrez organized a holiday on the street in front of the headquarters of the MPN Governing Council in Olascoaga 1,002. Shortly after arriving in 22nd place, the former governor, Jorge Sapag, arrived and was exultant with his candidate.
When he showed himself in front of the crowd that was waiting for him, Gutiérrez took the microphone and started to show disapproval of the song that was crushed by militants. "Where are they where they are," they said. The governor told them not to continue and they turned into a more neutral one. A clear message of unity, which was taken by Guillermo Pereyra, who told the newspaper that before the end of the day he was to call Figueroa to invite him to participate in the challenge of keeping the province in 2019.
Gutierrez said that for 20 years he could not assist in his cell phone, so if Figueroa had called him, he could not attend. He participated in a congratulatory call from Senator Pereyra.
Would it encourage Figueroa to go outside the MPN? Pereyra honestly replied that he did not believe it and that it was necessary to bet on the unit. Gutierrez preferred the call to unit gestures.
From now on, the date of the provincial election must be fixed, for which the governor avoided a specific answer: "Step by step we first had to earn the internship and then set the date."
To begin with, a network of meetings and agreements will begin, as the Governing Board is divided between Jorge Sapag and Pereyra, who will draw up a list of provincial deputies with waiting places, meaning they can reach a bank in the Legislature. Prussia may have deputies, but party leadership says where it is. Everyone knows that after the number 12 deputies, it's difficult to sit on the comfortable leather bench embroidered with the Leloir 810.
the votes were roughly the difference achieved by Blue over Violet, according to official information published last night by the MPN president.
votes have been awarded the blue list. In 2014, the formula Gutiérrez Figueroa took 69,631.
They voted in the MPN's internal and open elections of a standard of 420,735 affiliates and independents.
He lost the intentions of El Chañar, El Cholar, Caviahue and Chos Malal
With more than 60 percent of polling stations surveyed across the province, the Blue List announced yesterday a resounding victory. Their representatives said they had won in 50 of the 54 locations.
In the north of the Neuquén region, with a clear influence on the Violeta list, the sector led by Governor Omar Gutiérrez has won unexpected victories. In Huinganco, with 100% of the tables, Azul won with a narrow margin. He won 49.39% of the votes in the governor category, compared with 46.76% of his competitor. He is left with Las Ovejas, a city where he obtained 54.32% of the votes.
It has achieved a comfortable victory in oil regions, such as Añelo and Rincón de los Sauces. In both he won with 60% of the votes.
In the southern part of La Azul province also had good performance. In San Martin de los Andes, with 85.19% of the tables counted, Gutiérrez's list remained with 61.26% of the votes. At Villa La Angostura, with 91.66% of the data uploaded, the current president won 53.77% of the vote. In Villa Traful victory was 55.67%.
The current governor lost to Caviahue-Copahue, the reference spot of deputy Alma "Chani" Sapag. With the total number of tables counted, Violeta won 54.15% of the votes in the governor category. The list led by current deputy governor, Rolando Figueroa, won in San Patricio del Chañar, Chos Malal and El Cholar.
In oil cities, such as Añelo and Rincón de los Sauces, the Muerta Cow Keys, the blue list kept the Chief of Staff's applications.
A classic: taxis and vehicles contracted
On Saturday, most gas stations were filled with vehicles waiting to load their tanks. Yesterday in a central corner of the capital, Neuquén became the basis for taxi operations.
According to information from the Peones Union, about 280 units were elected to the provincial party's internal elections, but they did not indicate what list.
Figueroa did not speak, but left suspicion about the elections
The opponent of the moment was the last big night absent when he knew the provisional results of the Neuquino People's Movement (MPN). Deputy Governor Rolando Figueroa avoided lost photos when the Electoral Committee gave Omar Gutiérrez a 57% advantage over 39% and sent the Violeta lawyers to the press conference they had given before the 21st to denounce this election were "fraudulent". "This has been turned into a catalog of maneuvers, fraud and non-transparency," said José Russo's representative, along with Federico Brollo and Rodolfo Chaneton, on an Independencia Street office.
The spokesman mentioned "tug" and "trout tickets" and resulted in some tables that are "very different, almost magical," but have clarified that they will analyze today whether they will formalize a complaint in court or not. He explained that during the elections they could not do so because electoral justice was "closed" and no one received the proposals. "The Veil of Judicial Power have seen nothing and we do not know where they are", questioned about the 23 inspectors who were appointed to control the elections in the main cities.
Violetta was an anticipated speech because its members have already stated that their blue competitors have prepared "a fraud", that they have bought votes and given voters.
"We feel disappointed by our colleagues, it is always possible to smoothen the harsh edges, but in this context it is very difficult, there is betrayal," Russo said.
The deputy governor will speak to 11 today to give his vision of what happened, because the analysis of the data "requires a larger view of a less hot state man," the lawyer said.
Figueroa chose yesterday to wait for the results in his home with his daughters and did not answer any questions from the press after 18 years. His main candidates have also remained silent.
The provisional results showed a victory for Violeta in the intentions of Chos Malal, El Cholar and El Chañar.
analyze: Gutiérrez with his own stamp on the blue list
Governor Omar Gutiérrez won yesterday more than an electoral triumph. He marked his personal stamp on the creation of former governor Jorge Sapag: the blue list. Both he and his deputy mayor and opponent, Rolando Figueroa, came to the government in the hands of the leader and within a renewal within the MPN.
Sapag's presence in the shadows was a constant suspicion both internally and externally. This was the case when Figueroa devoted much of his criticism to his president.
"This is all his," said a collaborator of Gutiérrez. The governor chose equipment and style: young profiles and performance management. With this and without Figueroa's suspicions of perpetuation, he could get the triumph. But it remains to be seen if it will come to reunite the MPN and maintain the government after 2019.
