“Come govern Argentina.” That was the request that a group of Argentine tourists made this Friday to Luis Lacalle Pou after greeting him and asking for a photo in the port of Punta del Este, when the president of Uruguay was going with his wife and several officials to an official tourist activity. .

The moment was captured in a video published by the newspaper El País from Uruguay, which shared some details of the exchange.

Sport dress, with a backpack, Lacalle Pou arrived at the port accompanied by his wife, Lorena Ponce de León, and other national and departmental government authorities.

After capturing the moment with a selfie, one of the people added, before slapping the president: “Congratulations, come to govern Argentina”, generating laughter.
