'Scioli lacks Kirchnerite DNA' - Cobos

Julio Cobos gestures during the Congress debate to decide on the rural export tax bill. ''''''''My vote is not positive,'''''''' the now MP said with his vote giving farmers a victory over the Kirchnerism-sponsored project (file photo).

The ex vice president during Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s first term in office considered the Buenos Aires province governor is not likely to meet the president’s expectations for the 2015 electoral battle.

In statements to media today, MP Julio Cobos said Daniel Scioli “will not be the man” Fernández de Kirchner will choose to succeed her, unless “polls obliges her to make that call.”

Scioli, according to Cobos, has no “Kirchnerite DNA” and “thinks different” from the federal government.

“Just like some government members say, like (Lower House chief Julián) Domínguez, minister of Defence (Agustín) Rossi or members of the (activists organization) La Cámpora, (Daniel) Scioli does not have a Kirchnerite DNA,” CFK’s former second-in-command – considered by most Kirchnerites a “traitor” after he voted against a government-sponsored bill to modify rural exports taxes back in 2008 amid a crisis with the farming sector-, said.

Back in 2008, the government submitted a bill to increase export taxes prompting fierce reactions by the rural sector that staged a 129-day lockout against the first administration of President CFK. As vice president and chairman of the Senate Cobos voted against the project in Congress saying his vote "was not positive."
