After being defeated in the second round of the presidential elections in Argentina, Sergio Massa has decided to continue as Minister of Economy and has formed a transition team to support the current Peronist president, Alberto Fernández, in his contacts with the elected president, Javier Milei. According to sources from the Ministry of Economy, Massa met with his closest collaborators on Monday to create a work team that will help the Peronist leader during the government transition with Milei, who will take office on December 10th.
Sources linked to the minister told EFE Agency that Massa was considering stepping down from his position after acknowledging defeat to Milei on Sunday. However, he would not make any decision until after Alberto and Milei met. This decision by Massa is significant for the continuity and stability of Argentina’s economic policies during the transition period.
The formation of a transition team highlights Massa’s commitment to supporting the transition process and demonstrates his willingness to work alongside Milei, despite their political differences. It remains unclear how this collaboration will play out, but it is an important development in the aftermath of the presidential elections.
