Uruguay Central Bank Chief Steps Down to Run for President

MONTEVIDEO – Mario Bergara resigned on Friday as head of Uruguay’s central bank to seek the 2019 presidential nomination of the governing center-left Frente Amplio (FA).

“The first thing that any ruling party that seeks to look forward must do is to analyze the significant changes that are happening in several domains, such as geopolitics, the economy, the financial system, trade and culture, and based on that analysis it is crucial to review and renew the perspective,” he said at FA headquarters in Montevideo.

Bergara thanked the presence of popular former President Jose Mujica, who attended the event to support his friend.

The presidential primaries are set for next June and the general elections will take place in October 2019.

Montevideo’s mayor, Daniel Martinez, plans to announce his candidacy for the FA presidential nomination on Oct. 17.

Other possible contenders in the FA primary must announce their candidacy by Nov. 10, the deadline to file the necessary papers to run.

Bergara highlighted the need to regain the support of those who have become “disillusioned” with the results of the FA administrations in the last few years.

“There is some disillusionment among many people, including among FA colleagues. I think that the creation of a new vision and agenda (...) will contribute to captivating those who have been disillusioned,” he said.
