After acknowledging defeat to Javier Milei 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. Sources from the Ministry of Economy reported on a meeting that Massa had this Monday with his closest collaborators to create a work team to help the Peronist leader in the government transition with Milei, who will take office on 10 December.
Sources linked to the minister told EFE Agency that he was considering stepping down from the post after acknowledging defeat, but that he would not make any decision until “Alberto and Milei met”. It is clear that Massa’s decision to stay on as Minister of Economy is significant for the continuity and stability of the country’s economic policies during the transition period.
The formation of a transition team shows Massa’s readiness to work alongside Milei and demonstrates a spirit of cooperation for the benefit of Argentina. This development highlights Massa’s commitment to supporting the transition process and maintaining stability in government during these uncertain times.
