Gov't 'monitors' provincial conflicts, Capitanich

Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich

In a visit to the Chaco province this weekend, the cabinet chief referred to the salary dispute involving provincial security forces and ratified the government’s position –as he had wanred when looting spread in De la Sota’s Córdoba- that public security "is an strictly provincial."

In his first official tour in the province of Chaco since he was appointed to head President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s ministerial team, Jorge Capitanich held a press conference along with other officials and explained a “monitoring system” has been put up to “evaluate the situation of each province.”

“Today and yesterday I talked to the governor of Catamarca Lucía Corpacci and the same thing I did with governors Antonio Bonfatti (Santa Fe), Daniel Scioli (Buenos Aires) and José Manuel De la Sota (Córdoba) to monitor the situation,” the minister told reporters.

Capitanich then quoted a Supreme Court 1869 ruling that says public security is a responsibility of each provincial district. “Undoubtedly, the administration of security and salary policy is an exclusive and strictly provincial power,” the cabinet chief insisted.
