(ANSA) - BUENOS AIRES, MARCH 26 - Former Argentine president Mauricio Macri (2015-2019) has announced that he has decided not to stand as a candidate for the opposition in the next presidential election scheduled in Argentina on October 22, 2023. "I do - he maintained


    in a video posted yesterday on his Twitter account - convinced that we must broaden the political space we have built", and in this context "I trust that the area in which I identify (the Pro coalition, ed.) will be able to choose the person who can best represent us".


    Leaving aside the ambiguity of recent statements that could suggest a new participation in the electoral dispute, Macri, 64, has now clarified his thoughts, not without harshly criticizing the Peronist government coalition Frente de Todos (FdT) which supports President Alberto Fernández.


    Underlining that because of the FdT "we are adrift, without a guide, isolated from the world, alone", Macri however warned of the danger that exists "in the difficult situations from which many believe they can get out by looking to a messianic personality who gives security", as it could be far-right leader Javier Milei with presidential ambitions.


    Local analysts point out that Macri's announcement, who did not appear to be in a good position in the polls, leaves room for other Pro candidates who aspire to run for the Casa Rosada: the current governor of Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, the former Minister of Security of the previous government, Patricia Bullrich, and the former governor of the province of Buenos Aires, María Eugenia Vidal.
