Mendoza lawmaker Julio Cobos dismissed the possibility of an electoral alliance with Buenos Aires City Mayor Mauricio Macri for the 2015 presidential elections and stressed that his efforts are aimed to increase UNEN-Broad Front’s (FAU) representation.

“No, I do not think so,” he said when asked about the possibility of a political alliance with Mauricio Macri. Cobos became the first member of the FAU to launch his bid for the coalition’s nomination to run for president in 2015.

“What I have with Macri is a good relationship, not just with Macri, but with other [political] sectors as well. I believe Argentina needs to start to rebuild dialogue among political leaders”.

“If we rebuild it among us, we will surely recover the people’s trust in politics,” he went on during an interview with Nacional Rock Radio. “Democracy is dialogue, conciliation, and that goes beyond electoral alliances,” he stressed.

The Radical Party lawmaker commented a day after meeting with Macri and UNEN members Elisa Carrió and Ernesto Sanz at a round table discussion on agriculture in Gualeguaychú, in Entre Ríos province.

Cobos described FAU as a “social democratic alliance, that some define as progressive, others as centre-leftist” and pointed out that its members are “determined to consolidate the alliance”.
