Antonio Aracre has broken his silence by criticizing Sergio Massa, Gabriela Cerruti and even Alberto Fernández
Aracre spoke this Tuesday, to be exact 15 days to quit to his post as chief adviser to Alberto Fernández, which he had only achieved last February. He did so amidst accusations from the Frente de Todos that he wanted to maintain Massa’s position and that he was guilty of the currency rush which led to the blue dollar closing at $500.
The report of Aracre and Fernandez It had begun to take shape years ago when the entrepreneur, then CEO of Syngenta, had been the lastsingle businessman who sat in the hunger table. The working group, which included media personalities such as host Marcelo Tinelli, writer Martín Caparrós and cook Narda Lepes, was created as soon as the Frente de Todos arrived in government, under the orbit of current minister Victoria Toulouse Paz, but had little life.
A day before leaving office, the former CEO had lunch with the president. There he had done a series of recommendations to channel the economy, which were embodied in a paper. From the massist ranks they saw this action as an attempt to oust the leader of the Palacio de Hacienda Renovation Front.
“I do not have why think it was a betrayal [hacia Massa]. I find it very strange this conspiracy theory that a president’s chief adviser cannot sit down and have lunch with the president to discuss the progress of the economy,” Aracre said in a radio interview on Wednesday.
And he insisted: “I think delirious (think of a betrayal). If it’s not, Good thing I escaped from there because then I don’t quite understand what my place would be”.
When asked if he had a file confidentially with reporters to talk about the economic plan which he had presented to the head of state, he replied: “That it was the spokesman’s version [Gabriela Cerruti]who took care of its diffusion and to tell or persuade the president on that matter”.
In a direct critique of Gabriela Cerruti, Aracre revealed this block the contact of the national official on your whatsapp and argued, “In general block toxic people. When I see a person who seems to me that everything he says and does doesn’t add up to me, he steals from me, lies and all that … I freeze.
Speaking of his relationship with the head of state, he explained: “Per Alberto Fernández I feel a lot of respect and personal affection. Professionally, in government management, there are some things that I disagree with this form of radial leadership that has”.
Meanwhile, the former official also spoke of the measures implemented in the days following his departure from the government to try to contain the currency rush.
“In my article, by the way, I also said this there have been serious coordination problems between the Ministry of the Economy and the Central Bank. It took the government 10 days to adjust the interest rate in the middle of a rush.”
When promptly asked if he felt like the bullfighting scapegoat, he replied: “Exactly. I felt I didn’t have the ‘skills’ for politics, because in politics the bagel is worth so much more than the action. The thread amuses me for a while, But then I see a serious problem and I have to go out and see how we can do something about it.”
