By 8 August 2021, the primary legislative elections (STEP) are scheduled and 24 October is the day on which the new national authorities will be finally defined. However, the advance of the pandemic and almost eight months of isolation raised a first doubt in the resepecto of the celebration of the pandemic. Sergio Uñac, governor of the province of San Juan, got ahead of this situation, 10 months after the vote and put on the air the idea that they can be suspended, leaving only the legislative elections of October. The reason it presents is to take care of the Argentinians and the economic matter.
Taking into account the 2021 Legislative Elections, and respecting the constitutional mandates and the replacement of the authorities elected by popular vote, I consider it appropriate to assess the suspension of the STEPS established by Law No. 26.571. — Sergio Uñac (@sergiounac)

«Taking into account the 2021 Legislative Elections, and respecting the constitutional mandates and the replacement of the authorities elected by popular vote, I consider it appropriate to assess the suspension of the PASO established by Law No. 26.571,» the representative said.» This would mean lower health risk and greater economic savings. Through dialogue and joint work with the political sectors, let us generate the necessary consensuses to present a Bill aimed at the suspension of PASO by 2021,» the Sanjuanino said. So far, the national government stated that work was being on the scheduled electoral timetable, so the suspension of THE PASS would be out of the question. Although they have been controversial for several years because of the impact it generates and the monetary question involved, it is still proposed that it be for the only time from this particular situation.
