The deputy and vice-rector of the University of Buenos Aires,
, denied this Monday having received the request for an opinion from the Minister of Economy Sergio Massa for the exchange of retirees' bonds.
It was through an extensive post on his social networks that the radical legislator reported: "Given the journalistic versions that circulated these days, I must comment that no
request for a report has yet reached the University of Buenos Aires
"The logical thing would have been for the government to send the issue to Congress. And, with a public project, the UBA, backed by its prestige, issued its technical opinion," he said on his Twitter account, slipping a criticism.
And he added: "Those who had to vote or comment publicly on the subject would have a rigorous analysis of all the implications of the measure, either to vote for it or to comment publicly on it. We believe in the role of universities in the public debate, as occurs in other countries".
A few days ago, Sergio Massa publicly defended the exchange of dollar bonds of public organizations and revealed that he had asked the University of Buenos Aires for an opinion to define whether the papers in the hands of ANSeS will be part of the operation.
“I made the decision that the UBA, through the Faculty of Economic Sciences, make an opinion to see if the exchange is beneficial for the ANSeS.
If the opinion says that it is not beneficial, ANSeS will not intervene in the exchange," Massa assured in a dialogue with radio Miter.
The Faculty of Economic Sciences of the UBA is controlled by the deputy Emiliano Yacobitti, vice-rector of the public university and an ally of senator Martín Lousteau.
In October 2022, the radical was the one who negotiated with Massa the quorum that enabled the debate on the budget bill.
His Evolution block also voted in favor in general, differing from the opposition arch that abstained or voted against.
