As every time a year begins, expectations and enthusiasm are rising. Therefore, in BigBang we advance some of the facts that will undoubtedly give a lot to talk about in 2020. On local politics, agitated with the landing of the new government; to central discussions, such as the legalization of abortion and the decriminalization of marijuana; the new population census, the Copa América, the return of Married with Children and all the news they will have to talk about.
“It is a public health problem that we must solve. I will send a project to Congress as soon as possible. ” President Alberto Fernández has the vocation that in 2020 abortion be legalized. "I'm going to try to get him out as soon as possible, it's not just up to me, I'm an activist to end the criminalization of abortion," he said before assuming. His position already generated a first crossing with the Church: it happens that as soon as he assumed, the Minister of Health, Ginés González García updated the protocol of legal termination of pregnancy. The expectation of the feminist movement is for the project to be debated again in Congress.RELATED

Another one of the debates that in 2020 could give to speak is the decriminalization and legalization of the marijuana. The Minister of Security, Sabina Frederic, anticipated agreeing to give the discussion regarding a "model on legalization of soft drugs, not hard ones." The new government has a totally different position from the previous one in this regard: without going any further, Alberto Fernández said in a campaign that "we don't have to persecute" smokers of joint. " The case of Uruguay and the recent decriminalization of Canada could give impetus to the project. In addition, another objective they pursue in the Casa Rosada is to reduce judicialization in cases of possession and personal consumption.
The economic situation is, without a doubt, one of the biggest questions for 2020. The Government expected at least "for the fall", which in 2019 will be of the order of 3 percent. For that, President Fernández appeals that the economic package voted in Congress in December, added to another series of measures that he will adopt in the first half, will allow a dynamization of consumption, which is in a tailspin. For the government, the consumer shock is key to boosting production. Another key is what happens in 2020 with inflation: the projections show a sharp fall, although still at very high values, between 40 and 45%.
The other aspect to pay attention to will be the retirement increases (suspended the pension formula for six months, the increases will be by decree) and the joint negotiations. Confirmed data: in the first days of the new year the agreement between the Executive, unions and businessmen will be announced for a bonus of between $ 6,000 and $ 9,000 for the private sector.
The big economic issue of 2020 will be the renegotiation of the millionaire debt with the International Monetary Fund. The matter is handled under seven keys in the Ministry of Economy that Martín Guzmán manages, just a debt expert, disciple of the Nobel Prize in Economics Joseph Stiglitz. Government plans point to rapid renegotiation, which allows the country to postpone payments while gaining time to boost the economy. In order to pay, dollars are required, which the Government intends to achieve with the impulse of exports.
In the last two weeks of December there began to be some short circuits within Juntos por el Cambio, which in 2020 should go through the complex challenge of being a seamless opposition, which seems complex considering the differences that have come to light since the presidential elections. Elisa Carrió will no longer be a national deputy on March 1, and one of the puzzles is what will happen to the three most important figures in the alliance: Mauricio Macri, María Eugenia Vidal and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. As president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich became a sort of "spokeswoman" for the outgoing government, which will surely remain in that role in the first months of the new year.
In 2020, a series will arrive on the screen that undoubtedly promises to speak, about the crime committed by the young Entrerriana Nahir Galarza, who in December 2017 murdered her boyfriend, Facundo Pastorizzo, and who in 2018 was sentenced to prison life. The production company Zeppelin Studio has already announced that it has reached an agreement with the Penguin Random House, as the plot will be based on the successful book by journalists Mauro Fulco and Mauro Zeta on the case. The screenwriter will be the journalist and writer Tamara Tenembaum. However, it could be endangered: the family of the young detainee said they could initiate legal action, while Nahir herself has already reached an “exclusivity” agreement for the production of a documentary.

It will be through a theatrical version and the tickets have already gone on sale, with total success. The premiere is expected for June 12 at the Gran Rex Theater, and they will perform two daily shows in the afternoon, with the possibility of developing a third night show, until the end of August. The entire cast of the successful Telefé strip has already been confirmed: Guillermo Francella, Florencia Peña, Érica Rivas, Luisana Lopilato, Marcelo De Bellis and Darío Lopilato will once again put themselves in the shoes of the Argento and Fuseneco families.
Another of the great novelties of 2020 will be the realization of a new National Census of Population, Households and Housing, as happens in Argentina every ten years. It will take place on October 28, and for the first time will include questions related to gender identity, ID and religion, among other aspects. It will be key not only to know the number of people living in Argentina, but also for other social and economic aspects.
Without a doubt, one of the sporting events of 2020 will be the Copa América, which will have a very special seasoning: Argentina and Colombia will be the tournament organizing countries that were originally not on the calendar, but that Conmebol decided to alter to “match” to the 2020 Eurocup calendar. The 47th edition of the Copa América will be played between June 12 and July 12 and the opening match will be between Argentina and Chile at the Monumental Stadium. The final, however, will be played on July 12 in the city of Barranquilla.
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, will seek to be reelected in the presidential elections that will be held on November 3, 2020. The US president arrives at a special time: in December, Parliament enabled the political trial against him for having pressured Ukraine to find information that harms one of the Democratic rivals, Joe Biden. The campaign, however, will be the main protagonist of 2020, as there will be primary elections and electoral assemblies during the first half of the year. In addition to the president, 34 senators are elected and the House of Representatives is completely renewed.
