'Corrientes shows gov't has no chance in October,' Alfonsín warns
Corrientes’ electoral results prove the government has no chance of winning October’s legislative battle, Radical Party lawmaker Ricardo Alfonsín said today.
“The outcome in Corrientes is very important because (Ricardo) Colombi won amid an impressive show of the national government that promised help and public works for the province,” the opposition MP told reporters following Sunday’s electoral results with radical governor Ricardo Colombi renewing his term in office, beating Kirchnerite Carlos “Camau” Espínola with 50.87 percent of the votes.
Alfonsín, running for parliament under the Progressive Civic and Social coalition, considered “people are noticing which political forces have better proposals and who will guarantee a more republican-like policy and dialogue in Congress.”
