Martin Lustow claimed that Millais was “forming his own group” and that many radicals were “hesitant to speak the truth”.

Martin Lusto once again defended his vote in the Senate to reject President Javier Mille's mega DNU 70/2023, which left him at the center of criticism from the ruling party and also caused an internal conflict with part of the UCR.

“Radicals in the Senate, who always want to speak the same as many when it is an expensive, very important issue for the society, did not want to speak, only two radicals spoke in favor of DNU, because in private everyone: he thinks it's a mistake,” he said.

The radical national lawmaker claimed that many of her radical peers were “afraid to tell the truth”, like Myrtle Legrand, who complained about INCAA cuts and the closure of Gaumont and received a barrage of criticism on social media.

“Many are afraid to speak because the president and the direct censorship method, which is offensive and offensive, makes people reluctant to tell the truth,” he added.

Moreover, he said that the day before the Senate session, he was called to a meeting with Interior Minister Guillermo Franco to change his vote and defined a “caste” for those who privately questioned the government. Executive and public they are silent.

“We are entering an Argentina where brutality is fashionable, where it seems impossible to think otherwise, and where there are very serious double standards. Millei is building his own caste with Menem Scioli, Patricia Bulrich or those who “name them relatives, they are not caste,” he declared.


After José Luis Espert called for a tax revolt in the state of Buenos Aires, President Javier Millei once again backed the initiative and assured that Buenos Aires Governor Axel Kitsiloff was “violating private property” with the tax hike.

After the rejection in the Senate, President Millay spoke strongly about Lustow, one of the most criticized lawmakers after the ruling party's defeat in the House, which sent the bill back to the Chamber of Deputies.

Regarding the senator and UCR president, he said that “he is a chameleon and adapts depending on how he can get positions and certain advantages” and suggested that by voting the same as the Kirchnerist senators, he is “absolutely consistent with his positions”. “.

“His reality is that he was Christina Kirchner's Secretary of the Economy and was responsible for Resolution 125, which brought the country to the brink of civil war,” he recalled, as he had already done from his networks, and added: The governor of Buenos Aires to criticism. “He is a systematic incompetent of the Kitsilof type, but he is more educated, with better manners, but deep down, they are not so different in dynamics,” said the president.

This Thursday, the radical lawmaker also expressed his position on the debate on the Basic Law in the Lower House and claimed that it was a “healthy exercise” by the executive to correct the original initiative and send it back for discussion.

Although he raised objections to the pension formula, among other points, the possibility of opening new money laundering.

Finally, he criticized La Rosada's decision to nominate federal judge Ariel Lijo and jurist Manuel García-Mancilla to fill the vacancies at the Supreme Court of Justice.

“We didn't talk about it. I want to see women in court. It was a good time to send the list of women,” he concluded.
