Randazzo: “If Cristina Kirchner was to decide to be candidate, it would be the best thing for Argentina”
City of Buenos Aires, March 10, 2011
State Minister Florencio Randazzo did not rule out President Cristina Kirchner’s candidacy, which was held in doubts by her.
Randazzo indicated that the core of the officialism will not be influenced by the “bad experience” with Vice President Julio Cobos (who returned to the UCR, betraying the government). That “does not throw away the alliance spirit” of Kirchnerism.
Regarding the candidacy of Cristina Kirchner, the Minister said: “We have until June 24 to decide who will the candidate of the Front for Victory be,” adding that “If Cristina Kirchner was to decide to be candidate, it would be the best thing for Argentina.”
The minister also criticized the ambiguity of the UCR, particularly one of its candidates. “If you listen to (Ernesto) Sanz (candidate for president of the UCR) he agrees with the law of audiovisual services to football for all, with the nationalization of Aerolineas Argentina, with the use of reserves for maturity payments debt, and the universal child allowance.”
However, he added, Sanz “has voted against each of these initiatives.”
