Carrio is back and criticized the media law
During the launch of the new Civic Coalition group-ARI, Elisa Carrio called for political unity with gestures towards Morales and the socialists. She affirmed that the government attempts to take control of the media.
“We must resist democratically to all sorts of humiliation and loss of rights,” said Lilita, and she assured that the country is in ‘intensive care’.
Thus, Carrio asserted her distance with Margarita Stolbizer and also formalized her distance with the Tierra del Fuego governor, Fabiana Rios. “We must be patient to move forwards and not to regress to the past.”
In the Rodriguez Peña Palace, Carrio talked before the militants. She was accompanied by senator Maria Eugenia Estenssoro, the deputy Adrian Perez, the economist Alfonso Prat Gay and the social leader Hector “Toty” Flores, and Gerardo Conte, among others.
The elect deputy, criticized the kirchnerist media bill that was just passed by the Senate without changes: “The best that could happend to Argentina is having an independent, free, and competitive media,” she expressed.
“Those who believe that Nestor Kirchner wants to have journalists to change people’s opinion, are wrong”, she assured.
“I’m convinced that this law attempts to abolish all free journalism in Argentina. Today is against Clarin and tomorrow it’ll be someone else. It’s not just a battle against one means of communication, they attempt to leave the country without freedom.”
Carrio also pointed out that there’s no break with her allies of the UCR and the Civic Coalition, and she said that there will be new agreements with other opposition representatives in the new Congress.
“Many expected a speech today of break up and I tell you, we’re stronger than ever, because we’re moving forwards. We’re all going to vote together, even along with other political forces, but at the time of making basic agreements we’ll be together. I’m going to promote those agreements.”
