The president of the Radical Youth of the City of Buenos Aires, Agustín Dante Rombolá, this Wednesday rejected the former presidential candidate and president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich, and called for “immediate dismissal” in the centenary party of the former candidate for vice president, Luis Petri, after both expressed their support for Javier Milei (La Libertad Avanza).
“I, Agustín Dante Rombolá, as a member and in my capacity: strongly reject Patricia Bullrich and her unconsulted decision to support authoritarianism. Likewise, I demand that the National UCR in- Immediately Luis Petri be expelled from our party. Long live the Radical Civic Union” Rombolá highlighted on his official X account (formerly Twitter).
Yo, Agustín Dante Rombolá, como afiliado y a título personal:
Repudio enérgicamente a @PatoBullrich y su decisión inconsulta de apoyar al autoritarismo.
Viva la Unión Cívica Radical.🇵🇱🇦🇷

The radical leader’s message came after the press conference held by Bullrich and Petri publicly announcing their support for Milei against the Unión por la Patria candidate, Sergio Massa, in the runoff election after a meeting they made by other PRO leaders such as Mauricio Macri and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta.
This afternoon, the National Committee of the Radical Civic Union (UCR) will hold a meeting to decide which position to adopt in the runoff, but party sources expect that they will not go with the libertarian deputy and accused former president Mauricio Macri trying to “break” Together for Change (JxC).
