Amid a crisis within local Victory Front (FPV) party, the Governor of Río Negro province Alberto Weretilneck has said he feels “outside of the Victory Front” due to local PJ party “expulsive attitude”, and admitted he is closer to Renewal Front’s Sergio Massa, who he described as “the person Argentina needs”.

“I am being pushed out [of the Victory Front] by the expulsive attitude of the Río Negro PJ’s leaders. Everyday, they permanently pushed me outside of the space we had built. Therefore, I do not wish to stay where I am not wanted. I feel outside of the Kirchnerism,” Weretilneck said in an interview.

The governor has two political active fronts, one with FPV's senator Miguel Ángel Pichetto, who has launched his own candidacy for governorn for 2015, and another one on a national level against the federal government after he opposed the hydrocarbons law encouraged by president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Weretilneck said he had met with Renewal Front’s lawmaker Sergio Massa “in a social gathering” and that he had contacted him again later. “We have established a relationship. It is true, we are talking,” he added in reference to the rumours about him joining Massa’s bloc.

“I believe Sergio [Massa] is the person that Argentina needs and that Río Negro needs,” he stated. Weretilneck said “a stage is ending for Argentina” and that he is focused on “what is next for the country”.

“In that new Argentina Sergio Massa not only has good chances of becoming president, but also the idea of federalism that interests me,” the governor added.
