Conti affirms Máximo Kirchner 'has always had his say'
The son of late Néstor Kirchner and President Cristina Fernández has "common sense, criteria and humility" and is "very smart," Kirchnerite MP Diana Conti assured and went on to say Máximo Kirchner “has always had a say” in government decisions. Conti defended Vice-president Amado Boudou and praised the role played by state secretary Carlos Zannini as well.
While Cristina Fernández de Kirchner recovers from surgery at the Fundación Favaloro medical center, Kirchnerite officials and lawmakers have raised their voices to defend her administration now that vice-president Amado Boudou is in charge.
Deputy lawmaker Diana Conti was one of them.
“Cristina continues to make the transcendental decisions. As soon as Boudou took over the vice-presidency with Cristina, there came defamation, judicial cases, media shows; it’s been almost two years and Clarín continues to defame him permanently when he has not even been summoned to court. Amado has taken part in the campaign; he had the courtesy of lowering his profile because he wanted to. He is a totally committed person with the project, loyal, and now he has to deal with the institutional representation of the presidency,” Conti affirmed in a heated defense of Boudou whose political career has been involved in an alleged corruption scandal denounced by a journalistic investigation carried out by Clarín, the government’s leading media critic.
In an interview with a local radio station, the Victory Front MP also referred to Máximo Kirchner saying the president’s son “has always had his say” in the government and praising his “common sense, criteria, humility and intelligence” and to the Legal and Technical Secretary Carlos Zannini whom she described a the “legal, technical and political support of Kirchnerism.” “He has Kirchnerite DNA,” Conti resumed and affirmed the current situation that has ended with CFK hospitalized to undergo a blood clot surgery “has consolidated” government members.
“We know we have to keep strong in order to give her the best rest,” the lawmaker insisted.
