Opposition continues to question Reposo's appointment as Procurator General
The eventual appointment of the head of the SIGEN, Daniel Reposo, as the new nation’s new Procurator General continues to be highly criticized by members of the opposition who claim he is not qualified for office.
“Reposo doesn’t have the necessary background to be appointed Procurator General and it has even been proven that he is friends with the Vice-President,” lawmaker Margarita Stolbizer said in a radio interview.
“It is scandalous that they are trying to do this in order to end (Amado Boudou’s accusations of influence peddling) once and for all,” she said.
Dissident Peronist Sonia Escudero also weighted in on the controversy and said the she wants to consider every detail in the appointment before making a decision, not only due to the institutional importance of his designation, but also because “we must look after such an important procedure.”
“Questioning him will be of utmost importance, and being able to revise his affidavit is also relevant,” she added.
Ricardo Alfonsín blasted Reposo via Twitter, saying that “not having the necessary requirements for the job is a technical deficiency, by making untrue statements on your resume is an unjustifiable legal and moral deficiency.”
