“It isn’t time to talk about candidates”, Chief of staff says
Buenos Aires, November 2, 2010.- Chief of staff Aníbal Fernández said that it isn’t time to talk about candidates after the speculation around this issue, driven by the Chancellor Héctor Timerman’s statements to CNN where he said that Cristina Fernández is the candidate for 2011.
“One thing is the expression of the will and aspirations that we all can have and another thing is the right time to implement this analysis,” said Fernandez in FM Milenium.
“We have to start working on the track when conditions are ripe for it and I do not think the time is right now. Let’s hope that time comes. When things are given, we’ll just talk about candidacies. This is no time for anything.”
With regard to the power of CGT secretary general Hugo Moyano, the official said: “This isn’t an issue that worries us. Those who we are worshipers of General Peron teaching know that the workers are the backbone of the movement. None of us denies that. For us it is very important the labor movement tasks”.
In addition, the cabinet chief said “there is nothing to change in a” clear message of support to President Cristina Fernández.
“She has nothing to change because it is considering the same thing coming from the start and that can certainly be reviewed by the President as often as she sees fit. But under any view she has things for immediate review and that are replaceable” he said.
On the other hand, Fernandez addressed the presidential couple’s eldest son, Máximo Kirchner and his role from now on in the administration of his mother.
“Son of a leopard has to be spotted. He is a kid that oozes politics. It’s nice to talk to him because he knows what he is speaking about. It is a compulsive reader; he knows what happens in Argentina and the world. He has a location in time and space superlative that do not have common boys,” Fernandez added.
