Pedro Sánchez, acting president of the Spanish government, replicated the move that ended successfully in Brazil a year later. If that time he supported Luiz Inácio Lula Silva against Jair Bolsonaro in the presidential elections, this Tuesday He explicitly opted for the Peronist Sergio Massa against the ultra-liberal populist Javier Milei in Sunday’s elections in Argentina.
Everything, yes, accompanied by anagrams and scenery of the PSOE, not from the Presidency of the Government. In a video broadcast on Massa’s social networks, Sánchez referred to “decisive elections in Argentina.” “The two candidates in the running offer profoundly diametrically different options from each other. Sergio Massa represents the commitment to democratic coexistence, to harmony and offers a project of unity and solidarity with opportunities for everyone”
“We need to strengthen that, our democracies, adopt policies that respond to the needs of the people, especially from the most humble people, and continue along the path of social progress,” he added before sending express support to the Peronist: “Dear Sergio, I send you all my support from Spain and my most sincere wish for success. Good luck winning.”
Massa reacted with gratitude: “Thank you for your support dear, Pedro Sánchez, President of the Government of Spain, I value it very much.” The Peronist candidate also received support from Lula and the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Milei, without major international contacts until now beyond some international hard-right parties, has received the support of several former leaders in recent days: the Spanish Mariano Rajoy, the Colombians Andrés Pastrana and Iván Duque, the Mexican Vicente Fox and the Chilean Sebastián Piñera, as well as the Argentine Mauricio Macri, among others. The Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa, former presidential candidate, also spoke out in favor of Milei.
