Javier Milei will propose deputy-elect Martín Menem to preside over Argentina’s Lower House, the president-elect’s team announced Saturday. In the same release, they said that Francisco Paoltroni was picked to be the Senate’s provisional president behind Victoria Villarruel. Per the Constitution, Senator-elect Paoltroni will be second in the line of succession after Vice President-elect Victoria Villarruel, while Menem will be third. In the Lower House, FdT is the first minority with 105 deputies (out of a total of 257), although a new bloc format could take place. The third biggest bloc in the lower house, or the second, depending on how deep the split of JxC is, will be LLA.
