He is right to be disappointed, “said Macri and added:” The best thing in life is to do what one says. And unfortunately I feel that María Eugenia has made several successive decisions in which she has blurred her profile“.
“He has blurred his profile and that’s what hurts the people who are with herwho had made a commitment to Patricia and with Ritondo at the head as one of the most important leaders she had within her group,” continued the reference from Together for Change.
Cristian Ritondo: “I was disappointed that Vidal said he was going to vote for Larreta”
Asked about who best represents the space internally, Macri assured that “the important thing is that we understand that Argentina needs a profound change.” “If we continue as we are now, the only thing we are going to have is more poverty and exclusion. Argentina needs a deep, fast, clear and firm change. You need to get people out of the hopelessness they’ve fallen into. People have to choose who that represents,” he said.
For his part, Ritondo had been the first to expose his rejection of the decision of who has been his main political reference. “It is clear that I am disappointed in María Eugenia’s decision and I told her personally. He told me he was going to stay neutral. I worked with her for years and we fought important battles in the province of Buenos Aires that had never happened before,” said the legislator.
“The person with character to follow that change is Patricia Bullrich.” “Not everything is worth one vote and I don’t like it when Patricia’s proposal is criticized. There has to be a harmony,” Ritondo said in communication with CNN Radio.
