'I should be respected,' Capitanich tells Moyano
Chaco's Governor, Jorge Capitanich, took on to Twitter his outrage over CGT Labour Confederation boss Hugo Moyano after the latter made some piquant remarks yesterday questioning the governor's credibility for having allegedly allowed an American military base to be built in the Northern province.
Capitanich went on to say that the votes he obtained in the latest provincial elections gives him “moral authority” to be respected.
“Comrade Moyano: the false statements over a military base as a blunt lie don’t take away my authority! The 67 percent of the vote obtained give me moral authority as does my political affiliation”, the Governor wrote in his Twitter account.
Moyano had blasted Capitanich for having joined pro-government officials yesterday and publicly condemned a rally called by the unionist at Plaza de Mayo square tomorrow.
“What a pity, yesterday’s enemies are today’s friends,” Capitanich wrote in an ironic Twitter post.
