Miguel Ángel Pichetto in an act in La Rural (Franco Fafasuli)
The presidential candidate for the Federal Republican Meeting, Miguel Ángel Pichetto, will lead an act this afternoon at the Ferro Carril Oeste Microstadium that will serve, for the space, as the opening of the campaign towards this year’s elections. There, the former national senator is presented as a candidate for president within Together for Change.
This is the third time it has been released. The first was in May of last year when it was “cut” only within the Together for Change coalition and presented its own party and candidacy. At that time, that move helped him to sit at the JxC National Table and tour the provinces in search of alliances.
In this case, the act that was called for today at 6:00 p.m. at the Héctor Etchart de Ferro stadium, in the Caballito neighborhood, Federal Republican Meeting will officially launch the campaign for the PASO where it will compete against the UCR candidates, the PRO and the Civic Coalition.
In all the presentations that have been made, to show the muscle of the political space, the former candidate for Vice President of the Nation, usually makes the axis in his speeches in the freedom of the market, capitalism and point to the idea of ”poorism” and the “homeland of plans”.

In the midst of this, Pichetto also looks inside Juntos por el Cambio and seeks to broaden the base of the coalition with the sum of the liberal sectors. That is why for some time he has been asking for the incorporation of the economist and deputy José Luis Espert to JxC in the province of Buenos Aires.
“Yesterday we had a meeting and I have a totally positive outlook, I think it is interesting to add José Luis Espert with his party that brings a liberal outlook and consolidates the opposition front,” said the pre-candidate for the Federal Republican Meeting on Miter radio.
Pichetto announced that in the conversations held by the presidents of the four parties that make up Juntos por el Cambio “progress was made personally and politically” in the incorporation of Espert and remarked that “the president of the UCR -Gerardo Morales- and that of the Civic Coalition -Maximiliano Ferraro- agrees. The response of the president of the PRO, Federico Angelini – who participated via zoom because his plane did not leave and he could not make it to the meeting – was pending, but I think it is convenient to add ”.
But in addition to the intention of adding him, that although it would seem that Espert agrees it should make a decision regarding his candidacy, Pichetto’s intention is that the economist be part of the professionals in the field that Juntos por el Cambio has, analyzing the state of affairs Just in case, the Peronist leader said that “Espert would be part of the coalition in the primary process whatever the result and the candidacy that he carries out and the votes would join the coalition.”

Together with this, too, Juntos por el Cambio seeks to stop any kind of “right-wing” bleeding in the province of Buenos Aires, where there is no second round and it is won with one vote.
This afternoon Pichetto will present his proposal again. He will surely do so accompanied by several Peronist leaders as he did in 2022, many of them referenced in Menemism and with a very good relationship with the former president and former senator’s running mate in 2019, Mauricio Macri.
