The governor of Córdoba, Juan Schiaretti, decided to avoid controversy in relation to the explosive statements by the Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro, about the 2015 elections in the province. De Pedro had mentioned that there were “rare movements” during the electoral process that consecrated Schiaretti as governor and Martín Llaryora as lieutenant governor. When asked about it, Schiaretti stated: “I am not commenting on any politician’s statements.”

Within the framework of the inauguration of the road bypass of Circunvalación avenue in Camino San Carlos, Schiaretti also referred to other current issues. He criticized the national government for “not being able to solve the problem of inflation and the dollar,” stating that “security has worsened throughout the country and crime has increased in the first four months of this year.” In this context, he expressed his support for the incorporation of non-lethal weapons, such as pistols and shotguns that launch pepper spray, in the Córdoba Police operations, considering them safer than Tasers.

On the other hand, Schiaretti reiterated his position in favor of a coalition government to overcome “years of decline” in Argentina. He criticized the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, and the Kirchner government, describing the current management as a “resounding failure.” According to the governor of Córdoba, it is necessary to implement a stabilization plan focused on ending the fiscal deficit and stopping spending more than what is received. He concluded by stating that “current economic policy does not show signs of being able to reduce inflation.”
