In a message released on Twitter, the head of state specified that this measure responds to the needs, of the most important group in the government coalition, to define steps to follow in view of this year’s elections.
“I am confident that this area of debate will serve to open the call to social, production and work sectors accompaning the FdT and with whom we share the same country´s project,” he wrote. “Our governors and mayors must define the leadership nucleus that represents the territorial force of the Front,” he said.
He also stated his intention to ensure that the leaders “who come together with different perspectives on Peronism, along with leaders of the Renewal Front and other political forces that participate in the space, establish the rules of competition so as to sustain unity in order to achieve victory.”
“These challenges force us to work so that our FdT be consolidated around an inclusive project which should be developed respecting federalism, a country that recovers courts capable of imparting justice withoout submitting to factual powers,” he pointed out.
“We do not want Argentina to return to a past of persecution of opponents, indebtedness, capital flight, falling wages and deindustrialization like the one we suffered during the ´Together for Change Government´,” he concluded.
According to the planned schedule, the Open Primary Elections, simultaneous and Mandatory, must be called before mid-May and should take place in August.
The general elections are scheduled for October and, if necessary, a second round would be held in November.
