After his double defeat in Santa Fe, Agustin Rossi, Former Minister of Defense of the Nation, came out to support the National Government. “We must protect Alberto and Cristina,” he remarked. But in turn, he charged against peronism of the province where he competed and Front of All for not using the STEP properly. “In Peronism he did not let himself be played PASO. I was disqualified for making that decision, “he shot.
In dialogue with Futurock, Rossi, who lost the official intern to Marcelo Lewandowski and to Carolina Losada, the winning candidate of Juntos por el Cambio, spoke about the lack of inmates from the Frente de Todos in most of the provinces. “In Peronism they did not let themselves play in the STEP. I was disqualified for making that decision. It was a mistake to come up with this slogan of unique lists or death, ”Rossi charged against the Government.
“It is not a sin to do primaries, we were wrong about that,” he reflected, adding that “two lists of Juntos added more points than a single list of the Frente de Todos in the province of Buenos Aires. We were wrong, it is so. And look at Santa Fe: 40% took Together for Change, 20% took the governor’s list and 10% took me. Perhaps if we had not presented ourselves, the sum of 20 and 10 would not have existed, but less and the difference would have been greater ”.
He also questioned the participation of the President and Vice President. “They shouldn’t have been in the act Sunday night. When it is lost, the candidates and campaign manager assume defeat ”. “Our main leaders are the President and the Vice President for the leadership that Cristina represents. That must be protected because all of us who have to strengthen and move forward depend on them, “he said.
Regarding the result, he expressed that he was surprised: «It seems to me that there may be a number of explanations and justifications, but the most important signifier is that Argentine society and the sectors that we represent in political terms are not having a good time. That demand for a Peronist government is very strong, “concluded Rossi.
