Macri rejects alliance with Radicals and Socialists
Buenos Aires City Mayor, Mauricio Macri visited Córdoba this afternoon, and rejected a political alliance with Socialist and Radicals, in the National Wheat Party celebrated in that province.
During the celebration, Macri met Oscar Aguad, Radical Party national lawmaker, and Hermes Binner, leader of the Socialist Party.
“We are building an independent alternative, while respecting the rest of the traditional parties, because together, we can achieve much more,” Macri assured.
During the past weeks, Unen leader Elisa Carrió suggested a possible alliance with the Pro; an attempt to join forces in a non Peronist coalition for the upcoming presidential elections of 2015. However yesterday, the Radical’s executive board rejected this option.
In that sense, Senator Gerardo Morales expressed that:
“We are a big party with a vast territorial extension. There is a majority decision against an alliance with the Pro, although we might include the Civic Union and we are working on a document to be released in 30 days,” he told in a radio interview.
Despite the fact that BA City Mayor declined a partnership with Socialist and Radicals, the three politicians insisted in their critics on President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
“We need to team up with the farm sector instead of fighting it,” concluded Macri.
