Former Economy Minister Domingo Cavallo and PRO president Patricia Bullrich joined Mauricio Macri in their sympathy and affinity with Javier Milei, the far-right economist who won third place in the primaries in the City of Buenos Aires. “Milei is an interesting phenomenon,” Bullrich said yesterday. “I see it very well,” Cavallo said. “I share your ideas,” Macri had said earlier.
The father of the convertible openly declared his admiration for Milei: “I see it very well. The ideas you proclaim are the right ideas. Although he attacks what he calls the political caste, in the National Congress he will be able to help ”, considered Cavallo. And he added that “a phenomenon like Milei’s shows that the poorest sectors are no longer exclusive clients of the extreme left and of the Marxist or neo-Marxist discourse, but that there are other viable alternatives.”
Macri himself had declared that he holds the same ideology as the “libertarian” economist. “I share the ideas that Milei defends, starting with the most important value, freedom. That they do not indoctrinate me, that they respect me, “said the former president.
For her part, former minister Bullrich valued the work of the economist and revealed that she is very in tune with him, in what seemed like a nod to the far-right candidate. “I have cultivated a relationship with him, a friendship, so I congratulated him,” said Bullrich, who remarked that the economist made “a good choice.” “It is young, it takes young people. I have much more years in politics, and I think it is a good gesture to congratulate him and encourage him to continue, “he added.
“I appreciate him and I have sympathy for him,” he said, while not ruling out a rapprochement: “Later, when these elections happen, we will try to add absolutely everyone, because in this election it has given us results.”
The PRO head said that JxC must “rebuild the young vote” within its force, which migrated, among other options, to La Libertad Avanza, Milei’s space.
