If time is a scarce commodity, it does not appear to be the case Carlos Iannizzotto, the president of Coninagro who has 10 children and multiple roles as a leader. Tireless, lawyer and wine producer, at 65 he will launch a political space in Mendoza, through which he will seek to reach the National Congress “to defend the agroindustry already all regional economies”.
The launch will be made this Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., from Mendoza, by streaming, complying with health protocols. “I have decided to be a candidate for national legislator. I believe that the farmers of the field need representation in Congress. I feel that God, my dear Mendoza and life have given me much and, humbly, I will seek to repay it with values and principles”He announced this Sunday.
Since then, the top leader of one of the entities of the Liaison Table remained at the center of the agricultural scene, in relation to the protest that the field will perform next Friday, July 9, based in San Nicolás. That manifestation is organized by self-organized producers, who do not want demonstrations of partisan politics and they warned that they will not accept officials or candidates on stage. They even clarified that Iannizzotto will be welcomed as the leader of the field but will not have prominence in the box.
The problem is that as the days went by, the support of the entire Liaison Table and it is expected that the 4 union organizations of the producers will have a moment each at the time of the speeches. In this sense, the board of directors of Coninagro evaluates what is best so as not to distort the meaning of the act. Perhaps Vice President Elbio Laucirica will speak.
Regarding the protest, Iannizzotto affirmed before Clarion that adheres “deeply to the claim for the delicate situation that agribusiness production is going through, especially due to the latest measures that the Government has taken with respect to livestock.
Regarding the institutional position, he said that “in Coninagro we are deeply hurt by the productive situation, of the regional economies. And we do not care that whoever talks about our entity, as long as they express that discomfort. We cannot get entangled in a situation that is not at the center of the issue ”.
Regarding his party alignment, he said that “Randazzo’s thing is a lie. I’m not in your space far from it. I am talking with everyone because precisely the basis of my proposal is dialogue, agreement and looking for alternatives ”.
–But is he already identified with Randazzo?
-I do not have no deal closed. Encuentro por Mendoza is a political space without exclusive national references, which aims to promote production, employment, education by values. Cooperative producers, SMEs, young people, entrepreneurs, and independents who promote the space participate.
-What do they aspire to?
-We are going to try to compete to obtain a seat in the National Congress, but with a front of agreements in the area of Mendoza, that we are arming among all those who do not identify ourselves neither with Kirchnerism nor with macroism. Therefore, there are no alliances or agreements with national spaces with which we have conversations, but nothing has been agreed or signed.
– Are they not going to have national references or is it just for now?
-For now it is. We are talking with Cynthia Hotton, Roberto Lavagna, Alejandro “Topo” Rodríguez, Joaquín de la Torre and also with Randazzo.
-Those referents would participate in the same front …
-Yes, but there is no electoral political agreement. There is an understanding that if we go to Congress we are going to favor the productive forces, SMEs and the financing of companies so that they generate more employment.
