De La Sota rejects primaries with Macri: “I am Peronist and he isn’t”
January 19, 2013
Cordoba Gov. Jose Manuel de la Sota on Friday dismissed the possibility of competing in an internal election against Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri to define the 2015 presidential nomination.
“I am Peronist and he did not, and I’m old to change my shirt,” De la Sota said after Macri would try to do a face to define the maximum internal candidate for the presidential in a common front.
Thus the leader downplayed the progress of the meetings between the two, after which Macri had encouraged the possibility of achieving an electoral agreement in Córdoba for the upcoming legislative and nationally for the presidential elections.
“I meet with Macri, comes to Cordoba, and that becomes a news immediately, when it should be normal. If only it was news. It is simply a meeting between two leaders of different political parties,” he said.
De la Sota said he believes “strongly that the PJ has to fix things that are not doing well and continue those that are going right.”
