Stolbizer: CFK should decide on VP’s situation

The Renewal Front (RF) alliance headed by Sergio Massa yesterday called for impeachment against Vice-President Amado Boudou following his indictment by Judge Ariel Lijo over the so-called Ciccone case.

All opposition parties, regardless of their orientation, “should demostrate society they’re able to move on with the impeachment proceedings” against the Kirchnerite official, the RF said in a news release.

Massa himself said impeachment was “the tool that Congress has” to follow now that Justice has indicted Boudou, and called RF lawmakers Adrián Pérez, Graciela Camaño and Darío Giustozzi to begin impeachment proceedings against the vice-president.

At the same time, he asked other parties to follow this policy “without any political speculations” regarding next year’s general elections.

Radical Party (UCR) Senator Gerardo Morales agreed that “conditions have been met” for an impeachment process to begin.

However, Broad Front-UNEN lawmaker Margarita Stolbizer said President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner should demand Boudou’s immediate resignation.

The Kirchnerite official is currently on an official trip to Cuba.

“She should demand his immediate return” from the Caribbean, Stolbizer said. “Boudou cannot be representing us any more.”

The head of state “needs to send a clear message,” the GEN leader added, before stressing that the president should be the one to take a decision.

“Everybody knows the opposition does not have enough numbers to take decisions,” she concluded.

Former Santa Fe province Governor Hermes Binner, another Broad Front-UNEN member, said the vice-president “should take a step aside to prevent damaging the government further.”

If Boudou fails to to take a leave of absence, Binner said, “the gap between the political class and the rest of society will deepen and widen” and it will be hard to find “national consensus” on several issues.

Fernández de Kirchner should take “clear measures” against the questioned official, Binner said.
