Sergio Massa, Minister of Economy and candidate for president of the ruling party, referred tonight to the pact between Patricia Bullrich and Javier Milei. “People are confused by the contradictions,” said the Unión por la Patria candidate at the close of a day marked by the rapprochement between the two opposition leaders ahead of the runoff.

“I saw little of what happened,” said the head of Economy when asked if he followed throughout this Wednesday the comings and goings in the opposition wing of national politics after Patricia Bullrich confirmed that she will support Milei in the second round of the presidential elections scheduled for next November 19.
Along those lines, Massa added: “I saw some screen titles in the office, I understand that it is a topic that causes confusion for people due to the contradictions.” “It is not an issue of our political strength,” she later clarified.

Patricia Bullrich and Luis Petri led a press conference at noon today in which they announced their support for Milei, the presidential candidate of La Libertad Avanza, in the runoff.
“Today we believe that we must join forces for a higher objective. As San Martín said, ‘when the country is in danger, everything is allowed, except not defending it,'” Bullrich concluded, after listing a series of points that should be part of the program of an eventual next government headed by Milei.

“Last night I had a meeting with Milei, we had a talk about what her statements were (he accused her of putting bombs in kindergartens) and we forgave each other because today the Homeland needs us to be able to forgive each other. The future is at stake,” she expanded as a summary of her agreement with the libertarians.
