'Mariotto and I get along much better than what is publically perceived,' Scioli
Buenos Aires province Governor Daniel Scioli admitted that his relationship with Vice-governor Gabriel Mariotto “seems tense” but stressed the fact that they get along much better than they seem to do.
“We get along better than what is publically perceived,” he assured and hoped that they will be complement each other more in the future.
Governor Scioli said that “the relationship may seem tense and very difficult at times, we speak over things and I have no reason to doubt that in time we will complement each other.”
“I don’t believe in love at first sight; I sometimes prefer to let things take their own course and be able to talk personally when difficulties arise,” he added.
The former vice-president recalled that the beginning of his relationship with late president Néstor Kirchner “was difficult, but in time it strengthened, and we mutual trust and deep respect for each other, and we talk about that with Gabriel (Mariotto) quite a lot.”
Scioli also called for the participation of young people in politics and stated that all sectors of the Government must stimulate success. “It is very important that young people get involved in politics and engage with the future’s agenda. We must handle them responsibilities, they must assume them we must all respect each other to finde the path to a more prosperous Argentina,” he concluded.
