In a speech of one hour and ten minutes, Cristina Kirchner showed his toughest profile at the time of classify judges as gangstersbut she also had moments to speak as a candidate when referring to the need for a agreement with the opposition to review the agreement with the International Monetary Fund and a way out of what he calls the “bi-monetary economy”. And without naming him, he repeated the criticism of the President for the statements “on and off” and again highlighted the two biggest management problems: salaries and inflation.
“Christina President”, sang the more than a thousand present at the sports center of the University of Río Negro. Hundreds of other militants also chanted this rally outside the property where screens had been installed so they could follow their speech. It was about the third visit of the vice president to this institution that was created in his first government.
“Rupture of the democratic pact” It is the first point that CFK referred to. “After 40 years of democracy, I believe that what we are experiencing in terms of the division of powers when we see the most important sector of the opposition allied with the judiciary to do what we know it is doing, today we are not facing a constitutional democratic state”, he evaluated a few minutes after starting the presentation.
“You can’t get more mafioso”, said the vice about the ruling that leaves Doñate out of the Council
He immediately mentioned the “judicial party”. The first criticism of him came from the ruling that was released this Friday by the Administrative Litigation Chamber against the assumption of the FdT senator Martín Doñate in the Council of the Magistracy. “The judicial party separated Donate and reinstated the member who had challenged it (Luis Juez). You can’t get more gangster. What am I going to talk about a mafia message if here in Río Negro, in Lago Escondido, all of us Argentines were able to verify the chats where, due to those casual coincidences, the Judge who investigated the case in which I have just been banned was one of those who recommended how to make invoices trout,” he launched.
Within the judicial chapter, he also referred to the basics who met on Thursday in the road case for which she was sentenced to six years in prison and disqualified from holding public office. “Yesterday’s fundamentals more than fundamentals…millions of words and adjectives, no proof. The objective was the ban”.
Economy. “How are we going through the economy after forty years of democracy?” He asked to talk about the second chapter of his presentation: the bi-currency economy. He remarked that the task of a leader is to generate well-paid work. “That’s what it’s all about,” he said, acknowledging one of the biggest problems of this administration.
He introduced the discussion of inflation assuring that the salaries they are not part of the problem. “In 2015 when we had the highest salary in dollars in Latin America, inflation measured by the City was 24% and everyone gave me lessons. Those who gave me lessons took it to 54%. Take a look at how wages were in 2019 and look at how they are now that we have 100 percent inflation. With salaries on the floor and with registered workers who for the first time do not make ends meet, ”she launched.
The vice president recalled an act from the last campaign in which at that time as a deputy, Sergio Massa promised that “the economy would grow”. “I said that of course it was going to grow but we have to align prices, salaries, rates.” Today Massa is the Minister of Economy. “It is true that the economy is growing, it is true that jobs are being created.
In addition, he assured that it is not real that “inflation is due to the fiscal deficit”. “Now they are going to say that Cristina wants there to be a fiscal deficit. The virtuous thing is not to spend more than what you earn, but in times of crisis this is an element that is needed to avoid recession. Because on top of that we can have recession and inflation and we are in the oven”.
When speaking of the International Monetary Fund, he described it as the “greatest catastrophe”. “The pandemic was terrible, the war is terrible too, but there is no bigger catastrophe for Argentina than the indebtedness that occurred in 2015,” he explained and reminded Nestor Kirchnerwho “paid the IMF so that it could not interfere in the development of national public policies.”
He also spoke of the internal discussion within the Frente de Todos over the negotiation with the international organization and assured that it was not in his plans not to pay him.
“If they gave you 45 billion dollars, you are going to have to return it, nobody pretends that they do not return it,” he said. And he assured that it is not “stubborn or ideological.”
“There are so many things that are published and said on and off,” he launched against the President
It was in this passage and to explain his pragmatism that sent him a message to the president. “There are so many things that are published that are said on and off”, in reference to a quote from El Destape on behalf of Alberto Fernández that referred to being able to end 20 years of Kirchnerism. And in a sentence that seems to go beyond the agreement with the IMF and can also be read in the formula he chose in 2019, he assured: “I have shown pragmatism when it comes to the interests of the country, I don’t know what else I should do ”.
Agreement. Already in full electoral discussion, the vice president assured that “the conditions in which the agreement was signed will have to be reviewed.” And she asked to sit with the opposition. “It is necessary to agree,” she advanced. And she added: “You have to sit down and talk about the bi-monetary economy, without adjectives, without stereotypes, without clichés.” Without naming him, she recognized the words of Horacio Rodriguez Larreta. “There is an opposition candidate who said that the one who came to say that he lifted the stocks is a blackmail, it is a healthy gesture.” And he assessed that “we are going to need all of us to be united to review that agreement with the IMF, not to not pay, but to let us grow.”
In a campaign tone and from Río Negro, the head of the Senate said that “A change in attitude is essential. Then people will vote. If we cannot agree on this, we will continue to lack dollars.” The vice closed her speech by explaining that his intention is “to contribute ideas and discussions, we cannot continue in such a flat debate, so mediocre and so managed by the media.” When closing, the militants asked again for “Cristina President”. She no longer asks them to stop singing or says that it is not time. The official launch of this clamor operation will arrive tomorrow.
