The president of the National Convention of the Radical Civic Union (UCR), Gastón Manes, assured this Saturday that Together for Change (JxC) “does not exist anymore” since Patricia Bullrich and Mauricio Macri “joined without consultation” with Javier Milei, and stated that “there are no longer reasons to continue in a coalition.”
”JxC no longer exists since the day Patricia Bullrich and Macri met without consultation with Milei after the general (election). There are no reasons to continue in a coalition with the PRO. The Government's philosophy distances us more and more and if the PRO gets closer to them, it moves away from radicalism,” Manes said in statements to AM750.

In relation to the President's words about radicalism and the frustrated debate of the Omnibus Law in Congress, Manes stated that “radicalism represents the opposite of Milei” because it is a party where “ideas are discussed horizontally and with reflection.” ”.

“Blaming others is the simplest policy and the one that will have the least results for society,” he said. For Manes, Milei can say “whatever she wants about the radicals” and stated that “she does not respect them intellectually.”
”Milei is looking for scapegoats, it is a dynamic foreign to our party and Argentina's solutions, we voted against the Bases law in general because we knew that there is no chance of productive dialogue with a person of these characteristics,” he said.
Regarding the role of radical governors, Manes expressed that there are “marked nuances” and that they have “genuine interests in defending their management.”
”When you are governor or mayor you have to negotiate with the national government and I understand that there is a conflict of interest,” he admitted. Finally, Manes indicated that radicalism has to go towards “a popular center” because in the country “there are no incentives for moderation.”

Javier Milei stated that he is going to “explore” an agreement with the PRO
President Javier Milei recognized the possibility of an agreement to advance a Government with the PRO and highlighted the transcendental role that Patricia Bullrich already has as Minister of Security and Luis Petri in Defense.
“I have a fluid dialogue with Mauricio Macri,” said Milei in dialogue with Radio Miter and highlighted the transcendental role that PRO representatives already have within his Government. “Patricia Bullrich is part of our Government and I am fully satisfied. Like Luis Petri, who is our Minister of Defense,” highlighted the President.

“What happened in Congress clearly showed us who is on each side,” Milei said. And she stressed regarding the possibility of an agreement with the PRO: “It occurred spontaneously and was validated in the facts in the Chamber in recent days. It seems to me that it's something that naturally flows into that. Plus we get along very well.”
On the other hand, Milei ruled out giving names of possible PRO figures who could reach the Government and assured: “They are not the type of conversations that I have with Mauricio Macri.”
