Moyano 'talking to all' 2015 presidential candidates
Head of the anti-government splinter of the CGT labour confederation Hugo Moyano said he was still keeping distance from candidates ahead of the 2015 presidential run but warned he “talks with all.”
“We hold conversations with everybody. We will have to define ourselves at some point. We are evaluating the candidacies and we will then make a decision,” Moyano told reporters this morning.
In statements to a radio show, the union leader explained he once supported the federal government because at that time the Kirchnerite administration “gave answers to workers” – Moyano indeed backed the 2011 presidential candidacy of Cristina Fernández which she won with 54 percent of the ballots, securing a second term in office.
“I stopped being with the government when the government stopped giving answers to workers,” he said.
“All the boys now playing patriotic, re-nationalizing, when they had to do everything possible to prevent that (privatization) from happening they didn’t do so,” the also historic leader of the teamsters union stated, ruling out the possibility of a CGT reunification.
“Unity has to be for conviction and not to be nice with somebody,” Moyano said targeting the CGT umbrella run by a government ally, Antonio Caló.
