Claim over Malvinas is not Milei’s priority, respondents stated

Buenos Aires, May 27 (Prensa Latina) About 57.1 percent of Argentines believe this Monday that President Javier Milei does not give priority to the country's sovereignty claim over the Malvinas Islands, according to a survey conducted by the Zuban Córdoba y Asociados consulting firm.

A survey conducted by this company stated that 90.6 percent of the citizens believe that it is necessary to continue claiming to recover that territory, and 55.2 percent affirm that the position of the leader of La Libertad Avanza (Liberty Advances-LLA) party is favorable to the United Kingdom, the occupying power.

Furthermore, 94.5 percent state that the Malvinas Islands are and will be Argentinean, and 52.9 percent consider Milei’s support for the United States and Israel irrelevant to this nation.

The Government maintains 53.2-percent disapproval, and President Milei is third in a positive image with 46.6 percent, a score that places him below Congressman Leandro Santoro (50.4) and Buenos Aires Governor Axel Kicillof (49.2), both of Union por la Patria (Union for the Homeland, UP) alliance.

The survey informed that 74 percent of the respondents believe that the adjustment is being paid by all citizens and not by the so-called “caste,” as the president assures.

Sixty-five percent also disagree that “salaries have begun to outpace inflation,” 41 percent say they are just getting by, and another 41 percent say they are not.

The 59.8 percent also oppose the dismantling of the State.
