Jorge D’Onofrio, Buenos Aires’ transport minister and leader of the Renewal Front, insisted today that Peronism “must define a more important government program than a candidate” because “the future of Argentina is at stake” in the next general elections. and reiterated the need to find a unanimous postulant within the Frente de Todos.
“We signed a contract with our voters and the first thing we have to do is abide by that agreement and end this period in the best possible way,” the Buenos Aires official said in a statement to Radio Provincia this morning.
He indicated that “It’s not about ‘whether I deserve it or not, I feel like it or I want to see what society says about me.’ Whoever wants to know, barbecue with friends on the weekend. The future of Argentina is at stake here, a lot is at stake.
“The first thing is a program to define, how we are going to woo the voters again. This strategy requires a behavior of consistency and leaves no room for doubt. If we say anything because Whatever happens, we become the opposition. We don’t want to put the cart before the horse, first define what we are going to do,” he said.
He also insisted that the Economy Minister, Sergio Massa, “is proposing that we define a program and have a consensus candidate” and remarked that Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner “is proposing the same thing”. ”
“We have to define a government program that is more important than the candidate,” he stressed that, in his view, the primary election of the Frente de Todos, in which “4 or 5 candidates participated, each one would like to put himself in the other Saying something striking to detract from, will complicate this government and hamper its electoral prospects”.
“We assess that the points of convergence outweigh the differences, we do not need to put the two projects in conflict to define the choice. Anyone who picks up something other than his ego is looking at another reality. Our responsibility towards Argentina is too great to be left to someone’s vanity”, he concluded.
