Giustozzi tells Insaurralde 'politics is no show off'
The head of the Renewal Front Lower House caucus does not seem to be much of a fan of having lawmaker Martín Insaurralde joining the Sergio Massa-led opposition party because “politics is serious business.”
“Politics is serious business, it is no show off, it is not putting a vase on the head,” Giustozzi said in statements to media today, questioning Martín Isaurralde’s possible landing in the Renewal Front (RF) – Insaurralde was the government’s main candidate in the 2013 legislative elections defying RF leader Sergio Massa in the province of Buenos Aires.
Lately, he has been sounding out his political chances showing himself with both Massa and BA province governor Daniel Scioli. Insaurralde has also showed up in the Showmatch TV show where his girlfriend is participating in a dancing competition and announced their marriage for November 8.
Giustozzi, who also said he will be running for BA governor next year, questioned political leaders that are driven by “political and electoral speculation."
“One can not say that this wall is white but that now it is grey and then that it is black. It is not serious,” the MP said, adding that politicians can not just “adjust to time" following their "personal ambitions”.
Argentineans will hold next year general elections. Governor Scioli has already confirmed his presidential bid under the ruling Victory Front party ticket. Sergio Massa, ex major of the provincial locality of Tigre and now MP, is expected to run as well. Massa was cabinet chief during President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's first administration.
