FpV blasts Massa for missing pension moratorium voting
Ruling Victory Front party (FpV) leaders questioned head of the Renewal Front (RF) opposition group Sergio Massa for missing yesterday’s congress vote in which the Lower House passed almost unanimously a new pension moratorium that is expected to cover 500,000 people.
“Lawyer Sergio Massa, showing himself so worried about pensioners, did not even care about voting the moratorium,” senator Aníbal Fernández wrote in his official Twitter account today.
In tune with Fernández’s comments, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich also highlighted the fact that Sergio Massa did not attend Thrusday’s voting.
After an eight-hour debate, the government-sponsored bill was signed into law with 202 votes and 4 abstentions by Martín Lousteau (UNEN coalition), Carla Carrizo (Suma + Unen), Fernando Sánchez (UNEN coalition) and Pablo Javkin (Coalición Cívica).
