In the midst of the strong internal that goes through Together for Change, the head of the Buenos Aires Government and presidential pre-candidate of the PRO, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, ratified his candidacy and asked that there be respect among the members of the same space. "I'm a candidate and I'm not saying someone to get off," he said.
My candidacy is subject to only one thing, which is my convictions. I think we have to add [leaders] to beat Kirchnerism," said Rodríguez Larreta in the midst of the turbulence that the opposition coalition is going through around the possibility of adding the governor of Córdoba, Juan Schiaretti, to Together for Change.
In a dialogue with La Red radio, the PRO leader denied that there is a sector of the political space that asks him to lower his pre-candidacy: "Let's respect each other. I don't go into that, I don't say it about anyone. We have to respect everyone. I'm not saying so-and-so or Mengano get off."
24 hours after former President Mauricio Macri came out to criticize him and said "no" to understand "the decisions he has been making," Rodríguez Larreta responded: "You have never heard me criticize someone from Together for Change, although they do to me. It's not an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."
I respect Mauricio Macri, I have been working with him for 23 years. Over time we have had most coincidences, but we can have differences. I didn't speak to him in the last few hours. I respect him a lot and in this we have some differences, "said the presidential candidate, who added a new chapter of conflict with the PRO referent after promoting the landing of Schiaretti.

In that line, Rodríguez Larreta affirmed that his "conviction is unity", which is why he assured that after the PASO he will work together with his opponent of the PRO intern, Patricia Bullrich.
"We will work together after the PASO, have no doubt. I have the capacity to agree. I take responsibility for what I can do. If people choose me in the PASO, I will work with everyone and my attitude will not change, it does not depend on whether the other treats me well. My conviction is unity," he said.
