Duhalde wants to 'set State policies' with the Radical Party
Federal Peronism presidential pre-candidate Eduardo Duhalde confirmed that his relationship with his rival Alberto Rodríguez Saá “is broken,” and that he will begin with the creation of a new electoral front this week.
“The relationship is broken because I disagreed with the change of rules applied three days before the election, also because that day they presented a request for the annulment of the election of the previous week. I think that they are not used to lose,” the ex-president assured.
Duhalde stated that he does not agree with the idea of resuming the internal election, although he said that the leaders of the Federal Peronism must “arrange a new election.”
“I will take office as the head of the Unión Popular this week and we will begin to reaffirm a front with the blocs we’ve been working for a long time. There’s no time to lose,” he continued.
Duhalde also spoke about an agreement over state policies that could reach several sectors of the opposition, the Radical Party among them. He referred to the UCR and ruled out the chance of making a front together.
“What I pretend with the UCR is to sit down and determine a series of State policies to apply, no matter who wins the election. This does not mean that all the blocs get together. I even said that I don’t believe it’s convenient that the two historical parties run together for the election. I don’t believe it’s right to set boundaries before the dialogue,” he concluded.
