The first in the list of the FdT, in an interview that they carried out this morning in “Somos Radio”, assured that “it is clear that discontent is expressed. When a society is discontent it is that the policy of those who govern, because that is the The tool we have today could not transform life. ” He also stated that “it seems to me that there is a president and governors are going to have to take the bull by the antlers and start working on solving the problems.”
Tolosa Paz acknowledged that it was a vote against the Government due to “anger and dissatisfaction”, but stressed that you have to be “humble” to read the results and, looking to the future, stated that “the tools have to be different” to solve the problems. .
“It is clear because the result is at the polls. Beyond what we say, the message does not arrive, ”said the ruling party candidate. And he added: “There is no margin to escape the result and I believe that yesterday the President has taken it, has taken charge of the electoral defeat, taking only the floor, he did not want to share with the Front. Those of the Front were up there and only he wanted to speak, to say ‘I am the president of the Nation and here there is an adverse result in all of Argentina, I am going to put myself on the shoulder and I am going to take that demand’ “.
Finally, he acknowledged that what happened yesterday in the PASO was a vote “against the ruling party, almost throughout the country.”
