On Sunday there were elections of authorities of the UCR party in Córdoba and on Monday, Senator Martín Lousteau accused the head of the interlock of Juntos por el Cambio, Mario Negri, of «contesting the list» that he had supported to «avoid competing». Authorities of the Provincial and City Committee of the UCR were elected to the electoral contest. The results so far showed that the applicants of Mario Negri’s Radical Convergence list, Marcos Carasso and Liliana Ruestch, prevailed as president and vice, respectively, while Sumar, Rodrigo de Loredo’s «opposition», who responds to Martín Lousteau, would be second.» Negri, you tried to avoid competing in Cordoba with Sumar,» Lousteau wrote on his Twitter account, backing his line candidate, Loredo.

In that line, the legislator added: «You challenged the list, proclaimed your candidate, had to intervene in justice and they officialized Sumar 5 days earlier.» For the senator, «unity is not to prevent competition,» so he argued that «a together for the biggest and best change needs a better and bigger UCR.» He continued, «Until 10 days ago, partisan officerism didn’t even want to let them compete» because they «said they didn’t meet the minimum requirements to present the list.» «In the face of arbitrariness, Justice had to intervene and yesterday there were finally elections,» he argued. For his part, Negri had expressed his opinion hours earlier through his networks: «As I said in recent months, my obligation was to close the wounds of our party in Cordoba, that is why I sought unity, not that I was afraid of the intern.» He said, «I preferred at all times not to respond to grievances, some of them said from outside the province.»
As I said in recent months, my obligation was to close the wounds of our party in Cordoba, that is why I was looking for unity, not that I was afraid of the intern.
I preferred at all times not to respond to grievances, some of them said from outside the province. Thread 1/3 — Mario Raúl Negri (@marioraulnegri)

«On this occasion I was not running for office. I bet on the real renovation. From my experience of having a lot of interns on the back, I would tell those who lost yesterday that you have to be a good loser and that the main thing is to be together as soon as possible in Cordoba,» he said.
