Macri: “If Cobos wants to run for candidate, he won’t be able to stay as vice president forever”
City government chief Mauricio Macri said that if Julio Cobos wants to be the candidate for the opposition in the 2011 presidential elections he won’t be able to stay in his vice president position forever.
“At some point he will have to make a decision in terms of his future. At some point, in two months, six or a year he will have to resign as vice president,” shot PRO’s head.
Macri defended Cobos’ action in trying to convene a special session in the Upper House to discuss the conflict surrounding Martin Redrado with the Central Bank and the use of the monetary reserves to pay public debts.
“He is complying with the role of vice president that must lead the Senate,” Macri said, and referring to the Executive’s criticism of Cobos, he said that Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner should “make self-criticism”, as it was herself the one who called him to be her running mate.
