The internal politics of the 3904 broke out in Carmelo. The mayor goes on leave and her group does not want her to assume the second, nor does Martín Manitto follow him and they bet on Miguel Suárez as the replacement. Manitto would also have fallen out of favor in the eyes of the mayor.
The 3904 whatsapp group exploded into a thousand pieces this afternoon when it was learned that the closest circle of the mayor Alicia Espíndola stated that she does not want the second on the list to assume Amelia Pochellú who already replacement on another license last year. Everything was going well in the group until today the issue of the substitution of Alicia Espíndola was raised, who stated that her idea was to rotate the members of the list so that everyone had the opportunity to hold the position.
Alicia Espíndola plans to go on leave next July.
Pochellú, who comes from red ranks, has been at odds with the mayor since it was her turn to replace her and on this occasion she expressed her decision not to take office. Her inner circle does not like the idea of Martín Manitto either, who they say would have made arrangements in Montevideo on behalf of the municipality without Espíndola’s endorsement.
All eyes point to Miguel Suárez, a militant who is very close to the intimate group that surrounds the mayor.
The truth is that at this time, there are intense meetings to try to recompose the discussion that took place in the WhatsApp group and that exposed the internal differences in the majority list of the National Party that governs in Carmelo.
