The opposition’s claims for the funds
The 2022 Buenos Aires Games culminated in the first days of October with the completion of the finals in Mar del Plata. The opposition had demanded that the Government speed up the disbursement of the funds to cover the expenses of the activity and also that a greater amount be assigned to them.
The head of the Juntos bench, Maximiliano Abad, had submitted a request for a report and had warned that “funds are scarce, late and in the midst of an inflationary process.”
The white beret legislator asked the management of Axel Kicillof to reinforce the items destined for the delegations of each district, “due to this deep economic gap that they cause to the municipalities.”
