The ruling party is maintaining intense negotiations against the clock with the “dialogue” opposition to advance parliamentary agreements in view of what is expected to be Wednesday's marathon session in Deputies for the Omnibus Law, which would last at least 30 hours.
The Government removed the fiscal chapter from the project to accelerate consensus and although approval in general would be guaranteed, as TN anticipated, there would be rejections of some articles in particular.

After hard talks -which are still in progress- concessions and retreats, the Government is on its way to achieving its first session in the Chamber of Deputies, on Wednesday, to approve what was left standing of the Omnibus Law.
After withdrawing the fiscal chapter from the reform package, the national Executive accepted more modifications and all the blocks are prepared for a session that will not be measured in hours, but in days. Despite the changes and the negotiations with governors, the dialogue groups maintain some differences. The fate of some conflicting items could end up being resolved on the premises.

Mayor K of Pehuajó, Pablo Zurro, submitted a draft ordinance to the local Deliberative Council to declare “ungrateful person” to all national legislators who support the “Bases” Law and the Emergency Necessity Decree (DNU) promoted by the president, Javier Miley.
Zurro announced the measure in a video he published on Mr. (Luis) Caputo”.
The mayor of Pehuajó said: “Since the government of Alberto Fernández did not rise to the occasion, we find ourselves at this moment with a brutal adjustment, a surrender of the Homeland and with everything bad, perverse because Caputo says: ' What a problem the debt, that you took on, Caputo.”
Zurro criticized: “The complicated de Milei has intervened in our deputies, like the people of Tucumán and the governor (Osvaldo) Jaldo, who believes that he has a republic and is harming us all.
The mayor of Pehuajó announced: “I have decided, by decree ad referendum, to name the Tucumán deputies and anyone who votes for this Omnibus Law as persona non grata,” and invited his peers to replicate the measure in the other municipalities.
According to the text of the project, all Deputies of the National Congress who provide “total and/or partial adherence to the “Omnibus Law” projects or DNU 70/2023 with a clearly anti-democratic conception will be declared “persona non grata” of Pehuajó. and that will bring a crisis of significant proportions that will seriously affect millions of Argentines, among whom of course a large part of the Pehuajense people will be affected.”
The proposal states: “Taking into account the political movements that are already observed, such as the cleavage of some blocks of Deputies and the clear political agreement that governors like that of Tucumán would be reaching, pretending to function as an independent republic and not knowing themselves to be part of a federal nation, supportive and twinned between each of its provinces.
