Likewise, the Left Front is obtaining second place in San Salvador and obtaining three new provincial deputies and six constituents at the provincial level.
A few moments ago, and in dialogue with the media, Alejandro Vilca pointed out that “for now we are making a very good choice in San Salvador de Jujuy. We are disputing second place in popular neighborhoods. As in Alto Comedero, where we are almost disputing with the ruling party. We are very happy. We still do not have precise data from the interior of the province”.
In addition, he indicated: “As we had already been denouncing the situation of irregularities, this went even deeper in the interior, where there were missing tickets and broken tickets. But, in addition, they did not let our prosecutors carry out their tasks. In some cases, like in El Carmen, all of our prosecutors were removed.”
Myriam Bregman, who accompanied Vilca in Jujuy, also pointed out that “here, in San Salvador, where we were able to be in contact the most, go to schools and come back, we are in second place and very well located. Now, in the places where we said that we had set up parallel dark rooms, there the PJ makes a huge difference. In polls where in previous elections we had gotten 50 votes, now we got 2. Those fraudulent maneuvers that we denounced and that luckily we were able to get to the national media.
