Argentina, a year before the elections

With the participation of political consultant and analyst Carlos Fara, a new Foro Catalinas meeting was held at CADAL’s headquarters. Some of the questions addressed by the speaker were: Can Cambiemos win the presidential election? Will the Peronism be unified? Will Macri and Cristina be candidates? What will happen with the cuts during the election year?

During the presentation, the Vice-president of CADAL analyzed the situation of Peronism, the state of public opinion, and the three election scenarios for 2019.
