The ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) is expected to survive the vote of no confidence later today, 21 July. The ruling party could announce a major cabinet reshuffle to appease public discontent. However, the probability of snap polls is rising amid the continuing, largest anti-government protests since 2013. The motion of no confidence – initiated by the opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) over the government’s alleged failure to tackle corruption – is unlikely to succeed as the GERB-led coalition holds 115 mandates in the 240-seat parliament and the r

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “La crisis económica es un hecho, y esa realidad está llevando al Presidente a una posición mucho más débil, obligándolo cada vez más a recostarse sobre el núcleo duro cristinista del 25%.”

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “La economía dejó de ser determinada por la política y pasó a ser definida por la crisis mundial, agravada en Argentina por la duración de la cuarentena.”

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “El electorado argentino ya no está dividido en tres tercios. Hay una amplia mayoría que rechaza a Cristina Kirchner y a Mauricio Macri.”

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “Fuera de los dos núcleos duros de cristinistas y macristas, hay un 54% que nosotros llamamos “Ni-Ni políticos”. Se trata de gente que dio vuelta la página, y viene creciendo constantemente en el tiempo -en 2016 era 33%-.”

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “CFK está pagando el costo político de la crisis en términos de opinión pública. Hoy tiene solamente 28% de imagen positiva, es la más baja en dos años y es 14 puntos menor a la que tenía en diciembre al comenzar la gestión.”

Alejandro Catterberg en diálogo con @LongobardiM: “La imagen de Alberto Fernández no está al nivel de CFK -sigue teniendo una ventaja amplia sobre ella- pero está cayendo. En nuestro último estudio mensual (septiembre), la imagen del presidente cayó por quinto mes consecutivo.”
