January 4, 2013
The national government asked the resignation to Bariloche mayor Omar Goye after looting before Christmas. The decision was announced by Senator Miguel Angel Pichetto and Black River governor Alberto Weretilneck.
However, despite the requirement of the Casa Rosada, the mayor said he will not resign but will analyze the proposal to leave the office and shall respond in the coming days.
“For the good of San Carlos de Bariloche and to achieve peace in the city, we believe that the logical and reasonable thing is that the Mayor seriously discuss the possibility of leaving office,” said Weretilneck during a press conference after the meeting.
And Pichetto added: “We talked at the highest levels of national government and have an evaluation that we have passed the mayor. But I want to make clear the role of the President, that at no time used personal derogatory toward the mayor nor pose the way of his departure”.
To reach office, Goye won the support of the Front for Victory and his political godfather was Pichetto.
If he resigns, The City Council president María Eugenia Martini will occupy the governor and would have to call elections within 60 days.
