We were able to face each of the extremely complex adversities”, acknowledged.

Criticism was not lacking for anyone. to the opposition He blamed him for the reproaches that were made to him: “During this time I heard how my moderation was criticized over and over again, but with my moderation I was able to face private creditors and I was able to put a stop to the conditions that the IMF had imposed on the government that preceded me.”

To the pressthrew him: “It was very difficult to avoid given the levels of concentration that exist in our media systems. In addition, many of these media express economic and political interests opposed to the government, which hide or misrepresent information”he remarked.

However, he maintained that he has the “tranquillity” to make this observation knowing that during his government “no one has been censored, silenced or punished for their expressions”. “There is absolute freedom of the press and that is how it should be. I’m just warning against arguments that are often intellectually dishonest and hateful.. With these practices, citizens do not have the opportunity to know what the State is doing with public resources”he added.

The Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation was not left out of the presidential darts either. “I once again demand that Justice deepen the investigation – of the attack on CFK -. I ask you to act with the same urgency with which cases are filed against judges and powerful businessmen.”

On the co-participation, he pointed out that “The meddling of Justice in budget execution is definitely inadmissible. It exceeds its faculties, forgets the jurisprudentially established rule that recognizes “non-justiciable political issues” and puts at risk the redistributive logic of the Federal Coparticipation Law, causing severe damage to the balance of public accounts.“.

And added: “Unfortunately, the Judiciary has not had public confidence for a long time, it does not work effectively andor is shown independently required against factual and political powers”.
