Solanas: ‘To want a pact with PRO is to want to leave UNEN’
National senator Fernando “Pino” Solanas assured today that Broad Front-UNEN is not going to make a political pact with Buenos Aires City governor Mauricio Macri’s PRO party, following the head of the UCR Emiliano Yacobitti’s praise of the PRO administration.
Solanas argued that anyone who promotes that alternative is “betraying” the front’s “proposal and earned votes.”
“To insist with the possibility of that alliance, to want a pact with PRO is to want to leave Broad Front-UNEN,” the senator said in a press release.
Yacobitti said yesterday there were “some valuable people in the PRO party” and that he would “love” to see some of its figures joining UNEN for the 2015 general elections — like PRO Senator Gabriela Michetti.
Solanas argued Broad Front-UNEN does not need the PRO party, as it has already “taken the City from Macri,” referring to last year’s deputy and senator elections.
“Pino” distanced his political space from Macri’s administration, highlighting that Broad Front-UNEN has run “two campaigns against PRO’s corruption in the City."
“We have also criticized PRO's over-priced public works contracts, under-execution of public health, education and housing budgets, and BA City government’s 3 billion pesos deficit.”
