Argentine opposition will struggle to maintain unity

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Significance

However, ahead of the November 14 legislative elections, JxC will have to mend internal divisions between moderates and hardliners, respond to the challenge posed by new right-wing forces, and postpone debates about their 2023 presidential candidate.

Impacts

  • Neither JxC nor the FdT as yet has a clear presidential frontrunner for 2023.
  • Victories by Rodriguez Larreta’s allies in the November elections would strengthen his leadership within the coalition.
  • JxC will continue to face challenges related to Macri’s widespread rejection and criticism of his government.
  • Hardliners in JxC will push for a more confrontational stance against the Peronist government, which could backfire.
