'Kirchnerites may swear they won’t change the electoral system, but they are liars,' UCR’s head
The head of the Radical Party (UCR), Mario Barletta, said his party will not support a government’s constitutional reform plan “not even if they [Kirchnerites] swear by all religions and saints of the world that they won’t modify the presidential electoral system to validate a second re-election.”
In that sense, Barletta said he has "no doubt that this government will try to attack the Republic, the institutions and the Constitution itself before 2013, after 2013, and always", and concluded, “Not if they bring it written in stone, we do not believe them because they are all liars."
“I’m sure the government will go for it, and the Radical party will absolutely reject any attempt of that kind as it is a unanimous decision taken by the party’s National Committee.”
