Argentina's political future seems to be no mystery regarding the upcoming October 27 presidential elections. So much so that First Lady Juliana Awada's snap trip Sunday to Madrid citing entertainment and social engagements was announced by the media as a preparation for a post December 10 exile that looks inevitable after the outcome of the August 11 primaries.

    Spain is a baaaaaad choice..., Juliana...

    Because of this...:
    Vigente desde el 15 de Julio de 1990...

    If I were you..., turquita..., I would try Italy...
    We have a similar extradition treaty with them..., but...
    Maurizio could apply for an Italian “Jus Sanguinis” citizenship and profit from that loophole...

    Just saying...

    Are you suggesting he'd rather flee to Cuba?

    Nope...I'm suggesting that he will have enormous problems in the near future hiding from the Argentinean Judiciary...

    Even a little humble Chubutean as me has accumulated factual evidence enough about his misdeeds in my province to give him a serious, looong headache...
    And we are thousands and thousands of Argentineans that..., during the last four years..., have written and interchanged our cuadernos Gloria..., pebete...

    Italy could have been a possibility for him until a couple of months ago but..., today..., with Salvini gone..., I wouldn't bet on it...

    As I see it..., he could try either to hide in the Libanese Beqaa Valley under the عواضة (Awada)‎ clan protection...

    Or..., failing the above..., Papanatasam, Tamil Nadu, India..., under the protection of his beloved Guruji..., Ravi Shankar...

    Maurizio ciao..., Maurizio ciao, ciao, ciao...

    Why so far, when they can easily hide themselves amongst the penguins from the South Pole if Brazil is too far away?

    How about Brazil? Or Colombia, perhaps? Even the US could be a possibility.

    ANY place is fine as long as it's full of corruption!

    If judges act with due diligence, Mauricio Macri should be required to surrender his passport.

    There are many judicial processes in which he will need to testify, and the cogs of the justice system have started to turn in advance of the election.

    It goes without saying that, under the procedures extensively used during the Macri government, the soon-to-be former president would have to be incarcerated and denied bail because of the “residual power” he will hold as a result of his past position.

    Funny how things take unsuspected turns.

    This one is solely & exclusively for cultivated Argentineans of a certain age...
    Anglos and young Argie gorillas abstain..., you haven't got a chance to understand...

    On Saturday 28/10/19..., Maurizio Macri will hold a speech at the Barrancas de Belgrano gazebo...

    If this “Mano” knew anything about recent Argentinean history or culture...he would wisely keep far away from that beautiful pavillion...

    Hector German..., Diana..., Beatriz..., Estela and Marina Eternaut-haunt that place...

    And we all know how that “Mano” ended..., don't we...?

    Shouldn't China be requested to buy Argentina?

    REF: “When Mauricio Macri, succeeded the Peronists in 2015, he inherited an absolute mess”:

    Funny, he is yearning to inherit a yet bigger mess AGAIN!
