Mauricio Macri in Rosario: he avoided talking about his possible candidacy and said that Alberto Fernández "has been complicit in the growth of crime"


When presenting his book 'For what', the former President brought together all the main figures that Together for Change has in Santa Fe territory.

As expected, Mauricio Macri continues without confirming whether he will be a presidential candidate.

"I have not come to talk about it

," he said this Monday in Rosario after the presentation of his book.


he met with the mayor Pablo Javkin and promised that Together for Change will once again push back against drug trafficking.

In tune with a talk in which he combined his facets as a politician and a soccer fan, the founder of PRO also

threw away the dribble when asked about Elisa Carrió's latest statements


Last weekend, "Lilita" torpedoed the front of fronts that the opposition is putting together in Santa Fe and said that the Civic Coalition will not be part of the project.

The former national deputy argued that there are people linked to drug trafficking among the parties that want to defeat Peronism in the province.

The former president politely avoided the issue and pointed out: "She is a leader with a long history,

she does not need me to explain what she is proposing


Regardless of the evasion, Macri brought together all the main figures that Juntos por el Cambio has in Santa Fe territory.

The great novelty in this visit was the setting in which they started the working day, since

Javkin received him in the Municipality

and shared the small table that had

Cristian Ritondo

as the other "foreigner".

After the meeting at the Palacio de los Leones, the former head of the Buenos Aires government went to the Metropolitan event room.

He arrived minutes before 12 in the company of national deputy Federico Angelini, one of the main promoters of Patricia Bullrich's candidacy.

A while later, the delegation headed by the radicals Carolina Losada and Dionisio Scarpin

, national senators from the province,

joined .

"I have come to show solidarity with my dear Rosario for everything they are experiencing," Macri explained about the very serious security problems that the city has.

At the press conference he confirmed that he also met with gastronomic businessmen and echoed the claims for power outages and inflation, among other issues.

The PRO leader pointed to different levels when analyzing the local situation.

On the one hand, he pointed out that

President Alberto Fernández "has been complicit"

, favoring the growth of organized crime with "perverse policies".

Previously, he indicated that the management of the governor Omar Perotti was "very poor" and "he chose very badly" when he put together his plan to curb crime and the sale of drugs.

As for the solution to the advance of drug trafficking, the former president considered that "all that has to be done is the opposite" of what Peronism has done since he began his current administration in Santa Fe. He then pointed out that the referents of the ruling party are "world champions of madness" when it comes to security.

"They break records, they don't work together or among themselves

," he said about the link with the Nation.

Before the press conference, Macri starred in a talk of just over 45 minutes with the excuse of launching "For what", his second book.

Invited by Fundación Libertad, he took center stage in a room for a thousand people where several seats remained vacant.

Yet attendee support for the author was felt throughout with

moments worthy of a campaign rally


"The disc jockey is hyperactive

," joked the PRO founder.

He thus referred to the electronic music that the sound operator played when a wave of applause rose to finish off one of his statements.

In this cordial climate, Macri shared some personal reflections far from the electoral discussion.

At the outset,

he asked for applause for Lionel Messi

and praised Rosario because he "has the most powerful brand in the world, the most beloved guy."

When analyzing what could happen towards the campaign, a football reading was allowed and he maintained that there is a "new energy in the country" and that this "

has a lot to do with what happened in Qatar"


According to the former president of Boca, Argentina's triumph in the World Cup showed "a healthy group and a healthy culture of power."

This is how he also threw flowers to the coach Lionel Scaloni and his collaborators.

"I am not here to say that there were no mistakes," Macri clarified at the press conference after the interview organized by the Libertad Foundation.

At the time of self-criticism, he pointed out:

"There was an underestimation on our part

. "

Next, he explained that "the story is important" when it comes to governing and "the example is not enough."

On more than one occasion, the PRO leader considered that his administration ended with the August 11, 2019 primaries.

"It exploded everything we had done

," he summarized on the effect of the result that turned out to be the prologue of a comfortable victory for the Front of all

In relation to his administration and what came after, Macri stated that

"an important part" of the red circle does not really want to change


"Here there are a number of people who live from disorder," he pointed out.

He then pointed out that "their corporate privileges have become mobsters" and "serve" them.

Looking back on a personal and political level, the former president also hinted at why he has yet to reveal his campaign plans.

When remembering why he was opposed to hiring Diego Maradona as technical director, he pointed out: "You can make a decision that is not convenient for you in the short term, that is not popular. If you are sure of what you are doing , that something is going to be generated,

in the long term it will also end up being convenient for you


Rosary beads.
