Agreement with the IMF: Sergio Massa acknowledges that Máximo Kirchner’s negative vote ‘represents an impact’

Sergio Massa, president of the Chamber of Deputies and articulator so that the government was able to approve the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), referred to the Negative vote of the deputy of the Frente de Todos Máximo Kirchner, who resigned from his position as president of the ruling bloc when the text of the agreement was known.

“In an issue like this, which brings historical personal and political positions of each of the organizations, at a time when in Argentina both the government and the opposition are coalitions, there are nuances,” said Massa, visibly tired by a session that It ended in the early hours of this Friday.

“Within the opposition there were also differentiated votes or absences, product of the non-coincidence and within the ruling party, obviously, with the impact represented by La Cámpora or Máximothere was also that process of dissidence,” said the Tigrense through the channel LN+.

In that sense, to show that he did not support other laws of the Frente de Todos, Massa named the discussion for a Buenos Aires law. “He was opposed to changing the law, because he was the promoter, which limited the re-election of mayors and that in some way enabled them to have indefinite re-election again.”

“I opposed it, because I had opposed it from the beginning, and that meant nothing more than an internal debate and the understanding that we can live together in a diversity of opinion,” he continued.

“If there is something that has allowed me to find, on a critical issue like this, a solution for a very particular and delicate moment in the country, it is having the ability to tolerate and respect those who think differently and allows me to have a dialogue with all sectors. of the opposition,” added Massa, who when asked if he would be a candidate for President in 2023, replied: “Today I want to get a pillow and a bed“.
