The presidential candidate of La Libertad Avanza (LLA), Javier Milei, assured that Patricia Bullrich is “comfortably third” and urged Together for Change to “run” to defeat Peronism in the first round.
In the first broadcast of Alejandro Fantino’s new program, The Last Supper, the libertarian leader said that “Bullrich is in decline” and that polls show that his voting intentions “are melting like ice cream in the desert of Sahara,” at the time asking the place where they showed a prison with the name of Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
When asked about the political scenario, the economist expects that if La Libertad Avanza prevails in the October 22 election, “a strong political reorganization” will take place. “Together for Change will cease to exist as it is known today and so will Peronism,” he said and he did not rule out the possibility of increasing the members of that area in his future government.
“We come with the commitment to begin the path of rebuilding Argentina. That means that everyone who wants to accept the ideas of freedom and participate in the project of a prosperous Argentina is welcome,” he summarized.
However, Milei did not hold back from criticizing the opposition and accused them of resorting to dirty campaign tactics. “Most of the operations from Together for Change, I have never seen a campaign so dirty, they exceeded all the limits of good taste,” said the libertarian candidate.
Along these lines, he explained that “if they have to use those tools because they are lost before they start.” “If you have to cheat it’s because you see yourself as low. These people are not the change, if they have to resort to lies,” he said.
Also, he explained that a victory in the first round “will simplify many issues” for his government team because they can “start working as soon as possible.” In that sense, he continued that “Together for Change has failed” and explained that “they did not imprison Cristina Kirchner because it was not politically convenient for them.” Regarding this, Milei recalled that Thursday’s session in the Senate, where “two senators from Together for Change made it possible to guarantee the impunity of Cristina Kirchner,” according to his statements.
“Together for Change they will make the election easier than at the table of one and they kill each other who is in office,” he launched, which is why he presented La Libertad Avanza as “the only vehicle to end Kirchnerism.” “Let him run Together for Change, so we can defeat him directly in the first round,” he suggested.
The libertarian candidate also targeted Peronism by saying “it’s a party,” as he distinguished Kirchnerism from other Peronisms. “It’s not the same,” he explained.
In this context, the leader of La Libertad Avanza talked about what he will do from December 10 if he wins the presidential election. “We think, we give the diagnosis, we call extraordinary sessions and we send all the projects,” he said. Among these initiatives, he said it would include labor modernization. “I came and took the official instructions,” he added.
Regarding his meetings with the gastronomic leader Luis Barrionuevo and Gerardo Martínez, from UOCRA, he explained that his model proposes the implementation of “unemployment insurance.” “What we are proposing is one like the one that is in UOCRA, but with more financial depth,” he said, which is why he specified that he is carrying out a process of “interlacing technical groups to carry out the reform .” In this framework, the meeting with Barrionuevo arose, as he clarified.
When asked about the political resistance that the reform package will generate, Milei put his confidence in the support he will receive from the voters. Because of this, he pointed out: “It is difficult for us that, to receive support in the polls, the politics is against what the people expressed in their vote.” In this way, he returned to the idea of ”changing politics” by suggesting that “it is difficult for politics to turn its back on data, especially when all the other parties are disbanded.”
On the other hand, he announced that the famous lawyer Mariano Cuneo Libarona will be the Minister of Justice in his government. In terms of Justice, he also expects that he plans to develop a reform of the Judiciary. “The idea is that this minister can act in line with the Supreme Court to make the reforms that make the Judiciary independent to have a serious republic,” he assured.
Less than a month before the election, the libertarian candidate said that he and his team were working “as if they were in charge,” because there were weekly cabinet meetings. “Something happens and we are working to accommodate the project,” he said.
In relation to the campaign in other political spaces, he analyzed that the speeches of his opponents “the only thing they did was to criticize the proposals of the LLA, with a lot of intellectual dishonesty, editing, cutting , making things seem different.” “The only party that proposes a specific program is us. We talk about the reforms of the first generation, second generation, third and fourth generation, we make it clear that this is something that exceeds our political life . This is the planting of the tree that gives shade to our grandchildren,” he said.
Looking ahead to the first meeting of the presidential debate, Milei seemed calm when he said: “These are issues that I have answered at different times in my life and I am ready to see what barbaric way they came out,” in reference to his opponents. which he defined as “some.” For this confrontation, he said that he tried to rest, after making several caravans together throughout the country, and spend time with his partner, Fátima Florez. In fact, he confessed: “I will admit that I love Fátima.”
