Horacio Rodriguez Larreta He came from walking through the streets of Corrientes. When she got out of her car to meet the local governor, the radical Gustavo Valdés, he took her out of it and had stayed in the car. When they entered wearing a shirt, the radicals were surprised: the head of government asked a collaborator of the governor, Gerardo Moralesa jacket so as not to be the only one in a white shirt for the photo.
Relaxed, and under the slogan “more together than ever”, especially thinking about the inmates that Together for Change has been going through, the four leaders who govern the strategic districts for the opposition met. And they took the opportunity to send a message of unity.
In particular, after the sparks that the president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich, began after endorsing a statement from the national table of the opposition front written with her computer and who later went out to denounce explaining that she did not agree with the inclusion of Javier Milei as a political actor outside of JxC.
In fact, in that conclave Morales, who also chairs the national UCR, was emphatic that the radicals would not tolerate the inclusion of the libertarian economist in JxC, with which unity could break. In other words, the PRO president’s strategy of keeping Milei close would imply detonating the opposition front.
With everything, and under this mantle, the host of the meeting, Valdés, was the one who acted as master of ceremonies for the signing of a tourist cooperation agreement between the four provinces: Corrientes, Federal Capital, Jujuy and Mendoza. In addition, they also participated in the Sustainable Development Forum, organized by JxC.
“First, we are united by a passion for management and, second, by a common vision of the country. We are part of the same political space and we are closer than ever. But the best way to be united is through concrete projects, doing things that change people’s lives. This agreement will bring more tourism. And tourism is hard work, which is what Argentines need,” Larreta said at a press conference after signing the agreement.
For his part, Morales was in tune: “Every day our four foundations (Pensar, Alem, Hannah Arendt and the Republican PJ), those of the different parties that make up Together for Change, are working, investigating, generating conclusions , agreements and building a government program”.
And he announced that next Friday the JxC leaders will meet in La Matanza to analyze a program of social policies for the opposition. In 15 days they will be in Río Cuarto to “talk about production,” added the governor and head of the UCR.
For his part, Valdés stated: “The candidate for president is going to come next year. In the meantime we are working on programs for the future. In the Senate and in the Chamber of Deputies, we are together.” The governor of Corrientes also criticized the Government: “We are as we are because this government does not know how to govern, they only know how to fight.” At his turn, the governor of Mendoza, Rodolfo Suárez, expressed, lukewarmly: “In this Argentina, consensus and joint work are needed so much, so that things really work out.”
Before Larreta had also criticized the Government. “We want a truly federal country where each province and region of the country can be the architects of their destiny, can decide the works and their priorities. A truly federal country is one where each person can choose where to live. And he added: “But today it is not felt that there are equal opportunities throughout Argentina because everything has been concentrated, the responsibility of a Santa Cruz native who at the beginning of the 2000s took all the funds at the national level and that was not reversed ” .
The head of government passed through Chaco with his candidate
Horacio Rodriguez Larreta took advantage of the trip to Corrientes to tour, hours before, the city of Resistencia, in the province of Chaco, together with the candidate for governor, Lucas Figueras, and the national deputy Marilú Quiroz, with whom he visited shops, spoke with neighbors, had contact with the press and had lunch with local leaders.
In this context, the community chief spoke of the lack of a program against insecurity: “I am concerned here in Chaco, in Gran Rosario and in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and many other places in the country. But it is not impossible. It is something that can be improved with a plan, with political decision, with firmness; as we did in the City, where all crimes fell, starting with the most serious crime, which is murder, which is the life of the people; Today it is at its lowest levels in all of history.”
And he added: “The plan can be taken to the entire country. There are no magic solutions or from one day to the next, but we showed that it can be done”.
Figueras was accompanied by the leader Juan Pablo Limodio and other local leaders.
