The transition is still shrouded in doubt. In the midst of uncertainty about the continuity of Sergio Massa at the head of the Ministry of Economy after the victory of Javier Milei, the president-elect and Alberto Fernández have not yet confirmed when they will meet to start the change. "It is being organized, today or tomorrow, by seeing," sources from the Casa Rosada said.
Milei's victory with 55% of the vote left the ruling party mired in a political crisis and triggered rumors about the resignation of Massa, who last night was considering asking for leave and leaving power before completing his term. In the last few hours, those close to the former presidential candidate confirmed that "a decision will not be made until Alberto and Milei meet."
Massa was scheduled to meet with his team this afternoon to make decisions ahead of the opening of the markets on Tuesday. The meeting would be attended by the head of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, the official who will be in charge of steering the ship until the transfer of functions on December 10, along with the Secretary of the Treasury, Raul Rigo.
Milei confirmed earlier that he had a chat with Fernandez. "He congratulated me; He invited me to have a meeting so that the transition is orderly and thus minimizes the damage to the population due to what is happening in the markets," said in an interview with Continental radio the candidate who beat Sergio Massa by 10 points in Sunday's runoff.
The libertarian leader also questioned Massa for pointing out in his speech last night that the president-elect should take charge of the transition, and pointed out that it would be "enormous irresponsibility" in the face of the delicate macroeconomic situation to erase it. "It should take responsibility for the disaster it has made in the fiscal, monetary, prices, activity and debt spheres," he warned.
