Alfonsín says Capitanich's Congress appearance 'fiction'

Radical Party MP Ricardo Alfonsín considered Capitanich’s Lower House briefing an “unilateral” “monologue” that bans lawamkers from cross-questioning the cabinet chief.

“We have to listen to a monologue from which interesting things come up. They make us send our questions a month ahead but answers are provided the very same moment the cabinet chief arrives at the House,” Alfonsín complaint.

In an interview with a radio show, the member of the FAP-UNEN opposition coalition seeking to challenge the ruling Victory Front party in next year’s presidential elections explained senators are instead allowed to cross-question.

“I can not understand that we don’t have the right to cross-question when we have certain doubts. I don’t understand why he (Jorge Capitanich) goes (to Congress) then; it is simulation, like if he were only complying with constitutional rules,” the deputy told reporters adding that “there are things you only get to know by asking the government (about them).”
