The opposition called the Front of All “irresponsible” for the resignation of Máximo Kirchner

After the letter from the national deputy and leader of La Cámpora, Maximo Kirchner, announcing his resignation from the presidency of the ruling bloc in disagreement with the understanding that the national government finalized last Friday with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), different opposition figures asked the Front of All for restraint.

“We hope that the ruling party is responsible and does not extreme positions, in the middle is Argentina and a very complex situation”, remarked the president of the Civic Coalition, Maximilian Ferraro.

For his part, the national deputy and president of the UCR bloc, Mario Negri, He assured that “today it is clear that there is a serious internal crisis within the Frente de Todos that seems to be gaining gravity and volume.”

“We had been saying that there was a stunned silence on the part of hard-line Kirchnerism regarding the government’s agreement with the IMF,” added the UCR legislator. The silence of Kirchnerism was eloquent after the agreement announced last Friday. Only the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillof, He referred to the agreement without giving too many details about the understanding itself. The Buenos Aires president chose to question the opposition and warn that if there was no agreement “it would be catastrophic.”

This Monday afternoon, it was not the vice president Cristina Kirchner who broke the silence, but his son and also president of the Frente de Todos bloc in the Chamber of Deputies. “This decision stems from not sharing the strategy used and much less the results obtained in the negotiation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), carried out exclusively by the economic cabinet and the negotiating group that responds and has the absolute confidence of the President of the Nation, to whom I never stopped telling my vision so as not to reach this result,” Máximo Kirchner reported in a statement.

Before knowing Kirchner’s letter, the president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich showed a photo with the former president Mauricio Macri in Villa La Angostura. “We share our concern about the country’s lack of direction. We are going to work with all the referents of Together for Change. Our premise is clear: 2022 is a year to strengthen our bond with society and not to think about candidates”.

For his part, the president of the Avanza Libertad bloc, Joseph Louis Espert, assured that “Cristina and Máximo Kirchner are irresponsible”. Along the same lines, the national senator and ex-governor from Mendoza, Jose Luis Cornejo. “Máximo Kirchner has just shown the exposed fracture of the FdT that I have been warning about for two years. They do not have a common program and they only came together to seize power. This lack of coincidences has only generated uncertainty since they have been in government,” he assured.

Also the national deputy and former vice president, Julio Cobos He referred to the resignation of Máximo Kirchner and also argued for the responsibility of the ruling party. “The inmates of the ruling party have an impact on the government of our country. In this case it is worse: it damages the presidential authority and removes credibility and stability. For the good of Argentina, we ask all sectors of the ruling party to be responsible,” he said.

“In the middle of an international negotiation, it seems to me an act of lack of responsibility, if it did not coincide with the course that was followed, it had to be done before, not today,” questioned the deputy Ricardo López Murphy.

In statements to All News, the president of the PRO bloc, Christian Ritondo, described Máximo Kirchner’s resignation as “bad for the country and for the government”. “He speaks of a government that has no coherence to govern”, lambasted the opposition deputy. “Tomorrow we will have to see how the markets react and the things that had begun to stabilize,” he added. The former Minister of Security of Buenos Aires also pointed out that Alberto Fernández “demonstrated that he had no political strength.”

Meanwhile, the deputy Fernando Iglesias He said that what happened this Monday is a “huge lesson for Together for Change: the crowding that serves to win elections does not serve to govern,” he said in reference to the political unity of the Frente de Todos coalition. “These are internal and not those of Cambiemos!”, He remarked.

For his part, the national deputy for the Left Front, Nicholas Del Cano he remarked that “the resignation of Máximo Kirchner confirms what we have been denouncing from the Left Front: the agreement with the IMF is a new colonial pact and will mean a harsh adjustment against the working people.”
