'If we can't win, we have to be the strongest party in the opposition,' Alfonsín
UDESO presidential candidate Ricardo Alfonsín ratified that he is working “in order to win the October elections” although he highlighted that “in case of a defeat we have to be the largest party in the opposition so we can win in 2013 and 2015.”
“We have to win. And if we can’t win, then we have to be the largest party in the opposition so we can beat them in 2013 and 2015,” he said during a speech he gave at a Provincial Convention of the Radical Woman, which was organized by the UCR party in the Buenos Aires province.
Before a crowd filled mostly by female voters, the Radical leader thanked them for their support during his campaign and warned that “there are many who do not want the UCR to win because it is the party of values, not interests,” and added that “there are some who want the Radical party to stop being an important player in Argentine politics.”
“We work hard in order to win an election, but in case you haven’t noticed, we have to be the strongest party in the opposition in Argentina. We Radicals don’t give up. Our militants put up a fight,” he concluded.
