Agreement with the IMF: Lousteau advances that there is support in the Senate but criticizes Cristina Kirchner for being ‘capable of generating suffering’

After 13 hours of debate, Deputies approved by a large majority the project agreed between the Government and the opposition to guarantee only the refinancing of the debt with the IMF, it was barely turned over for treatment in the Senate, Martín Lousteau, anticipated that there will be support in the Upper House but criticized Cristina Kirchner: “It is generating a very bad climate in the Senate“.

The radical senator was very critical of the vice president, after the former president posted a video with the damage to his office and his criticism of the IMF. “It is generating a very bad climate in the Senate where the agreement will still be approved to avoid all Argentines the catastrophic implications of a default,” said Lousteau.

In order to obtain a political benefit, speculating politically is capable of generating suffering. in the others. Yesterday we said something very responsible, which is no to default, no to violence and no to default, she is preventing Argentina from starting to work in another way,” added the economist, who was Cristina Kirchner’s minister between the end of 2007 and 2008. .

“At the moment that Máximo breaks up and is no longer at the negotiating table, we were all able to work out an agreement so that Argentina does not fall into default. Obviously I repudiate all violence against the police, against Congress and her office, something that she does not do in the video, she does not repudiate the general violence, she repudiates the violence against her”, she highlighted in dialogue with radio miter.

“Cristina Kirchner presented herself in a presidential ticket, and when she did, she knew that one of the issues that had to be resolved was credit with the Monetary Fund. For two years she allowed negotiations and the government says that this is a good agreement, that it has no structural reforms, that it has no adjustment and she also releases this video, his son Máximo votes against, his deputies vote against“, he added.

“She kept saying that it is not the party of default, but the increasingly smaller space that she has is the space of default, because if this agreement does not satisfy her, it means that she intended from the beginning to fall into default,” remarked the national senator.

“We did a great job within Together for Change and we were able to go collectively with the ruling party to negotiate. We are going to approve it, we do not want Argentina to go through a default,” concluded Lousteau.
