It’s the policy. No matter how much the economy offers any sign of improvement, in the electoral years there are moments when decisions adopt another logic.

The images that Peronism offered yesterday were read by the Government as if a common force had the necessary strength to link them in the field of the campaign. Cristina Kirchner began, making herself present at the National Council of the PJ (where she had not attended since her husband was president); The CGT continued, that in spite of the moderation that it promised in previous days now it did not have empacho in throwing a long-established unemployment against Macri, and finished the Supreme Court of Justice, that when requesting the file of the oral trial that the ex- mandatary went to face the next May 21, automatically put a brake on the process. The surprise decision of the highest court, once again, left in minority Carlos Rosenkrantz, the magistrate most akin to the wishes of the Casa Rosada.
The guilds did not want to feel run by Moyano. But maybe listening to the IMF mission so worried about what follows made them rethink their moderation. The macro can give some warm signs of encouragement (April inflation of less than 4% will be silently celebrated by the government) but they do not take away fragility from the economic and especially the social scenario. The dollar calmed down and country risk went down. Even Macri rebounded in polls. But although it is still to go on the court, the opposition is already preheating.
