Manzur-Jaldo Intern

In the PASO Elections of 2021 he generated controversy by breaking the unity of the Justicialista Party of Tucumán by presenting himself as a candidate for Deputy, generating an internal when facing the list of candidates of the governor Juan Manzur, in addition to a series of statements against the driver of the executive government of the province.[5] Finally, Jaldo, upon losing the election with 39.64% of votes, declined his candidacy despite having won second place for the General Elections, being replaced by Agustín Fernandez. In September 2021, Manzur was appointed Chief of Ministers, so Jaldo assumed the Interim governorship, calming the internal situation. In the Tucumán provincial elections of 2023 candidates for the governorship with the Jaldo-Manzur formula were in unity,[6] but due to Manzur's disqualification from being a candidate, the formula finally ended up being formed by Jaldo and Miguel Acevedo.

In 2024, the Unity was broken when the legislative bloc of the Justicialista Tucumán Party separated into two currents, generating controversy with the deputies closest to Jaldo entering the Independence Block while the deputies closest to Manzur they remained in the block of Unión por la Patria.[7]

Creation of the Independence block

In January 2024, it generated internal controversies in Unión por la Patria after three national deputies for Tucumán decided to leave the coalition bloc to form their own Independencia bloc after voting in favor of the ruling. of the "Bases Law" of the government of Javier Milei.[8] After this, the governor argued that "the national government acceded to the requests of Tucumán and the different sectors of production" and declared that they were not being pressured by anyone and acted in total freedom.[9] Among the negative reactions is that of the head of the UxP bloc, Germán Martínez: "He who betrays once, does it twice."[8]
