In the municipal elections of Pasco, the ruling party, with Darío Pereyra, sought to retain the mayor’s office in this electoral contest. On the other hand, Alicia Giubergia, a former mayor of Pasco who held the position for three terms between 1995 and 2007, was running as a candidate for the Federal Neighborhood Unit.
According to the figures of the past elections in 2019, it was expected that around a thousand residents of Pasco would participate in this election to elect the mayor, the councilors and the tribunes of accounts of the municipality.
Darío Pereyra (United for Pasco) will be the new mayor of Pasco. The current Secretary of Government achieved 68% against 32% of his opponent Alicia Giubergia.
In the Santiago Temple commune, in the Río Segundo de Córdoba department, municipal elections were held with two competing lists. The current Peronist mayor, Marcos Ferace, was seeking his re-election by heading the “We Make United for Córdoba” list. His main opponent was Elvio Mondino, a representative of the “Neighborhood Action Movement.”
At the end of May, Ferace denounced that unknown individuals entered his home with the intention of threatening him so that he would abandon his candidacy. A note found in his house with the message “Get Down or Death” led Ferace to point directly at one of his opponents, Elvio Mondino.
Elvio Mondino represented the neighborhood allied to Together for Change and sought to return to the mayorship after four years. Mondino had as a direct reference the four consecutive terms that he held between 2003 and 2019.
Santiago Temple, with a population of approximately 2,800, is the largest town in the region that elected authorities in the upcoming elections.
Marcos Ferace (United by Santiago Temple) was re-elected. He obtained more than 60% of votes against Elvio Mondino, from the Neighborhood Action Movement.
In the Río Cuarto department, the commune of Washington with a population of just under 600 inhabitants, became a key scenario for the ruling party (JxC), which sought to sustain power with the candidacy of María Marta Quinteros. His main opponent was Ariel Martínez, United for Washington candidate, who sought to wrest power from the ruling party.
The radical leader, María Marta Quinteros, retained the communal power of Washington for Together for Change, obtaining 52% of the votes against 47% for Ariel Quinteros, of United for Washington.
