The Nobel Prize for Literature Mario Vargas Llosa assured that “Argentina is hostage to a group of authoritarians led by Cristina Kirchner” and advocated that the next elections “should not only remove Kirchnerism from the government, but also be the first step on a path of urgent and necessary reforms.”
The prestigious writer criticized the management of the Frente de Todos prior to his trip to Buenos Aires to participate in the “Liberty Dinner”, the event organized by the Fundación Libertad that will be held on May 9, and that will be attended by businessmen, political leaders from all over the country.
“Argentina is a total nonsense Vargas Llosa affirmed. It has all the natural and human resources to be an economic leader, but it remains hostage to a group of authoritarians, headed by Cristina Kirchner, who keep the country in backwardness, inflation and poverty, waving an obsolete and frayed anti-capitalism”, established a statement released by that civil organization.
In addition, he added: “I found it as sad as it was hard to believe that Argentines have given Kirchnerism another chance in 2019. The results, sadly, were to be expected. Argentina is still not embarking on a reformist path and maintains the same hyperstatism that has marked its history in the 21st century”. The Peruvian writer referred to his personal bond with Argentina considering that “it was always a very dear country” for him, since “when I was a boy I looked at it with admiration for having defeated illiteracy and for having become a cultural and economic beacon ”.
“Despite the unfortunate present, I do not lose hope in Argentina. I believe that the next elections should not only remove Kirchnerism from the government, but also be the first step on a path of urgent and necessary reforms. Argentina cannot continue to be its worst enemy”, he concluded.
As on other occasions, the dinner organized by the Fundación Libertad, an entity chaired by Gerardo Bongiovanni, will include the participation of businessmen and politicians from all over the country. As reported by the NGO, former President Mauricio Macri is one of the first to confirm his presence at an event that in its past editions summoned leaders such as Luis Lacalle Pou, Iván Duque, Sebastián Piñera, José María Aznar and Philip Gonzalez.
This year’s “Dinner of Liberty” comes on the occasion of the 34th anniversary of Fundación Libertad and in “an extremely difficult moment for the country, as a result of avoiding to an unusual extent the structural reforms that we so much need”, Bongiovanni explained, according to the press release.
