While preparing to make a new million-dollar payment to the IMF, possibly this Friday, the Minister of Economy and candidate for president of Unión por la Patria, Sergio Massa, is fully focused on the electoral campaign.
After a list closure plagued by tensions and rumors that left “wounded” in Peronism, a damage control policy is currently underway to try to focus on the campaign.

An electoral campaign, many gestures that set the course for which Peronism chooses, once again.
