announced her break with the Avanza Libertad bloc
in the Lower House, after José Luis Espert's announcement to reach an electoral agreement with Juntos por el Cambio.
The national deputy of the province of Buenos Aires sent a letter to the president of the Chamber, Cecilia Moreau, where she informed her departure from the bloc headed by the economist.
"Due to incompatible political visions that have arisen in recent times, I have decided to leave the Bloque de Avanza Libertad," said the national legislator.
The decision comes hours after the economist confirmed that he began talks with JxC leaders to form "a new opposition space against Kirchnerism" in the Province and that he intends to go to a "mega STEP".
Espert even ventured some possible denominations for that front and said that, inexorably, it should contain the word “freedom”.
In the text, Píparo maintains that the decision is based on "coherence as a guiding rod to continue defending the interests of the thousands of people from Buenos Aires who have chosen me to represent the ideas of freedom from this bench."
In addition, he announced the creation of a monobloc called "Buenos Aires Libre" with which he will continue his legislative work, while he seeks a rapprochement with Javier Milei.
In 2021, Píparo was a provincial deputy for JxC and broke with that force to announce that he was going to accompany Espert in that year's legislative campaign.
At that time, the economist proposed a great STEP of the entire opposition space, which ultimately did not take place, so he formed the Avanza Libertad space with which he obtained two seats in the nation's Chamber of Deputies.
Two years later, in the prelude to a new electoral contest, the liberal economist seeks to form a new opposition political space to fight against the ruling party in the next elections.
"We are beginning to talk about something very important, which is the formation of a new opposition space where liberalism is part. A historic fact after I proposed in 2021, for the legislative elections of that year, to form a great STEP. Now we would go beyond," Espert told LN +.
When asked if he would go to a STEP against the JxC candidate, Diego Santilli, or other candidates who come from the hand of Patricia Bullrich, the deputy answered yes: "It could be, the idea is to compete."
The decision to go to an electoral alliance with the opposition coalition generated a rupture in his current space and in the block that he integrated with Píparo in the Lower House.
Now, Avanza Libertad will have Espert himself as the only member.
