2015 presidential election balance sheets rejected


Federal Judge María Servini de Cubría has ruled that the 2015 presidential campaigns of Sergio Massa (UNA), Margarita Stolbizer (Progressives), Nicolás del Caño (Leftist Workers’ Front), Mauricio Macri (Let’s Change), Daniel Scioli (Victory Front) and Adolfo Rodríguez Saá (Federal Commitment) violated financing rules and suspended public funds to those parties for the upcoming legislative elections.

However, that ruling is subject to confirmation by a higher court and will not likely come into effect for this year’s elections.

Servini de Cubría ruled after Prosecutor Jorge Di Lello had found inconsistencies in the sworn statements of revenue and spending in the elections for the candidates and audits by the National Electoral Court also detected anomalies.

Di Lello wrote that “the alliances have not been able to precisely demonstrate the origin and final destination for the funds that were received.”

Among the inconsistencies affecting alliances such as Let’s Change, the Victory Front, UNA and Federal Commitment, were false donors, phantom advisers, indirect support from businesses and rallies that were not duly declared.

The FIT and Progressives were judged to have committed administrative infractions but nonetheless had their balance sheets rejected.
