Homeland comes first, Argentine president said

Buenos Aires, Apr 21 (Prensa Latina) Homeland comes first, later movement, and finally, people, Argentine President Alberto Fernández said on Friday as he advocated for strengthening and renewing Frente de Todos (Front of All-FdT).

Upon announcing that he will not stand for re-election in October’s vote, Fernández, who is also the leader of the Justicialist Party, assured that, since his beginnings as a militant, he has never put a personal mission above people’s needs.

The economic context forces me to devote my efforts to the difficult times Argentina is going through.

The head of State noted, (…) We need to revitalize ourselves in these times. Beyond the internal criticism and the support I have received, I do not have a single opponent in the FdT. My enemies are those we have to face in the elections.

On Twitter, Fernández deemed it necessary to democratize the political space and give decision power to each militant.

The president said we celebrate 40 years of uninterrupted democracy this year. This achievement fills us with pride and makes us even more aware of our debt to a significant part of the population. I call on us to go through this electoral period, so prone to excesses, with respect for our candidates.

Fernández also called for promoting real debates in public spaces and urged people not to be deceived: “Not everything is equal in politics. Those who proclaim freedom are the ones who do the most to establish a socially unjust system.”
