Argentina’s ambassador to Chile, Rafael Bielsa, confirmed today that the presidential candidate of La Libertad Avanza (LLA), Javier Milei, whom he knew from working at the holding company Corporación América, “is not an intellectual impostor” but said that If he is elected it will be “more dangerous for the collective health.”
“Javier Milei is not an intellectual impostor, he is not a coached individual, he is an intellectually honest person. It is different what he postulates to achieve democratically in terms of social unrest, but he told me the same things, ” he confides. Bielsa in the statements of Radio con Vos.
He commented that in the last decade, when he worked for Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, a company part of Corporación América founded by Eduardo Eurnekian, Milei was a “risk evaluator” and described the libertarian as “a well-qualified professional.”
The ambassador called the presidential candidate of the LLA at the time of the report Javier Gerardo, the name he treated the libertarian based on the relationship he created during the years of shared work.
Bielsa stated that what “worries” him about the LLA deputy is not “his personal extravagance”, but that he “holds a theory that has not been proven, as he said, in any country in the world and which in many aspects means a failure of civilization”.
“I am worried about absolutely everything, the last presidency of Javier Gerardo is very dangerous for the collective health of our country,” he said.
And he warned that because the “social pact” is now experiencing “material fatigue”, if “all these recipes are added on top of it, I have great anxiety, I have four children.”
“I’m not worried about myself, I’m worried about my descendants and the descendants of all my friends, the country we’re going to leave,” he insisted.
Asked about the statements in which the LLA vice-presidential candidate, Victoria Villaruel, relativized state terrorism, he continued that “I will never analyze this event focusing on a minor figure today. ”
“As it is a failure (a possible Milei government) from the point of view of political science, it is possible that it is also a failure from the point of view about human rights,” he said.
Regarding the cross statements between Milei and Eurnekian, in which the libertarian said that “he stopped” a contract from the businessman for the future production of identity documents of the company Unitec Blue, Bielsa said that ” it is not true that Milei nor a group. like-minded representatives stop anything; they plan to present a measure so that a series of administrative actions will not be carried out by this Government, yes. ”
The statement of the libertarian came after Eurnekian continued that “Milei is not up to the task of judging or giving an opinion about Pope Francis,” after his complaints against the Supreme Pontiff, and after the magnate said at the summit of the Inter-American Council of Commerce and Production (Cicyp) that “we are not here to put up with another dictator.”
“They are two people I feel affection for and of course I don’t like these things to happen,” he added about the interdict.
Asked about the possibility of Eurnekian being Milei’s ‘political godfather’, Bielsa admitted that “Eduardo is not someone I would ask for political advice” and said that in the conversations he had with the businessman, ” he is not (inwardly) a libertarian in politics.
“He always told me that he hated politics, that he was not interested. He always had a bad attitude towards politics, so to think that Javier Milei is a product of some laboratory of Eduardo Eurnekian, that is not true, ” he said.
But he admits that the owner of Corporación América “could be supporting him” for example by “lending” him the Project Director of Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 who is on vacation, Nicolás Posse, as a possible Chief of Staff in the end which is the LLA government. .
Asked about Eurnekian’s possible financing for the LLA campaign, he emphasized: “Get it out of your head, serious financing when it happens is done in a different way, with other sizes, and with other actors.”
