The economist and candidate for national deputy of Together for Change for the City of Buenos Aires Martín Tetaz affirmed this Saturday that the Radical Civic Union (UCR) it’s responsible of “what happened in the management” of former President Mauricio Macri.
“Are fully responsible of everything that happened, good and bad, in the management of Macri, because we were part of the alliance, “Tetaz stressed.
In statements to CNN radio, Tetaz however, clarified: “The one who was driving, essentially, was the PRO, with very little opening“And the leader of the Civic Coalition, Elisa Carrió, recognized him,” a little more power [que la UCR], maybe a veto power “.
In this regard, the economist completed: “Every time the PRO did something, it was looking to see if Carrió approved or not. That overwhelming force that Lilita has obviously impacted on the government. “
“Now him Radicalism is a party that disputes the PRO for leadership, is no longer asking. Until now, the radicalism in the coalition, what I did was from the passenger seat, with a somewhat passive role, asking ‘che, let me drive’, “he said.
In this sense, the candidate for national legislator continued: “Radicalism is actively making the decision to compete against the PRO, with many chances today of winning Facundo Manes in the province of Buenos Aires. Power leadership is being disputed.”
In addition, he clarified that “radicalism practically did not participate in the decisions” made by the government of Mauricio Macri, and reflected: “Radicalism was too polite in asking too much permission and that is ending“.
“You have to occupy the spaces, not asking for permission. Permission is not required in politics“Tetaz stressed.
