“Peronism-Kirchnerism are permanent categories. Why are we not convinced that we are Albertists? Because it is a definition that implicitly does not include Cristina, and why are we not convinced that we are Cristinistas today?

In another part of his presentation, he remarked that “the great challenge for the future is that we can build a transformation agenda for what is to come” and he maintained that “we always talk about building, recovering and it seems to me that it is time to transform and that means sustaining economic growth”.
