Pre-candidates for the presidency of the Republic for the concertation met this Thursday to discuss the points that unite them, with the aim of building the winning alternative, with a view to the internal elections next December.

For his part, Sebastián Villarejo pointed out that the meeting also served to discuss the elections. “We meet to seek fair elections, find the conditions that favor it; always with the will that unity is the way, and that it be the citizens who choose who is going to lead the opposition”, he referred.
