The governor of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales, recalled the friendship of Mauricio Macri with Juan Schiaretti, after the former president came out to question the possibility of adding the Cordovan president to Together for Change.
"I am glad that Macri is going to support (Córdoba), because a month ago (Martín) Llaryora took him to Acassuso to take a photo. He is a friend (of Schiaretti) and wanted to incorporate him; We incorporated Pichetto, who was Cristina's block leader, he went to find Urtubey and Schiaretti to accompany him in the formula. Let's leave hypocrisy aside," he said on La Red radio.
In this way, the also president of the Radical Civic Union questioned the former president, who on Tuesday rejected the possibility of adding the Cordovan president to the opposition coalition. "This puts the entire coalition system in crisis," Macri said.
The former president traveled to Córdoba to present "Para qué," his second book, and will meet Luis Juez at the local Stock Exchange as a sign of support for his candidacy for governor.
"I am glad that he (Macri) is going now to do what all the candidates were, to support the judge and Marcos Carasso, but that is not an obstacle for us to think about incorporating a rational person of responsible Peronism," Morales added.

The head of the UCR spoke of a "natural process" of debate around the need to expand the opposition coalition and that is supported by the decision of the Radical Convention, which ratified this position to incorporate new leaders into the space of Together for Change.
"There are those who think that we must expand, this had also already been resolved by the convention in La Plata last year in the third point, which instructed us to expand as long as we have a coincidence of program," he said.
In addition, he announced that the convention of the radicalism, which will be held on July 12, a few days before the closing of alliances and the elections in Cordoba, the conventional Cordovan will be heard and a "collective decision" will be made on the Schiaretti issue.
On Monday, in full debate for the possible incorporation of Schiaretti, the provincial radicalism expressed its absolute rejection of the possible incorporation of the current governor into the coalition.
Thus, the centennial party was in line with the claim brought to Buenos Aires by the consensus candidate Juez, who said "do not count on me for that," in relation to the chance of adding the Peronist referent.
Specifically, the Provincial Committee of the Radical Civic Union of Córdoba recalled that the radicalism has maintained "for 23 years" a position "opposed to the Peronist government model" in that province, which it called "feudal management."
"I am not going to disqualify Judge, he is our candidate, we listen to him, we ratify that Peronism has completed a cycle, it has governed for 24 years. We want a change and in our opinion this does not affect it," he said.
Meanwhile, he again accused the internal PRO, led by Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and Patricia Bullrich, as responsible for the drop in the polls of the opposition coalition's intention to vote at the national level.
"For three months Together for Change has been on a plateau in decline as a result of Patricia's internal arrogance, which uses disqualification as a way to win in the debate, to impose itself in an internal one. I said that they lower a change, we must put aside this methodology, "he said.
