Macri: Meeting with Outgoing Prez Fernandez "Not Worth It"

BUENOS AIRES - The President-elect of Argentina, Mauricio Macri said that his meeting with current President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner Tuesday at the official residence of Olivos, was "cordial and short" but "not worth it" regarding details of the transition.

In the meeting "no agenda had been raised. It was not worth it. We did not feel it was worth getting into those issues," Macri said in an interview to 'Todo Noticias' channel referring to the outstanding issues on the transition.

"She told me that she had called me for a personal felicitation before seeing me again on December 10. We spoke about (the day) and the formality of the transfer ceremony. And nothing more than that," added Macri.

Macri stressed that "we will do the handover accordingly in the Congress."

"The important thing is to continue working in the preparation (process) because the electoral agenda of this country is crazy. It is something to be reviewed, in a transition where there are only 8 business days remaining and very little time to get ready for the handover."

At the end of the closed-door meeting with outgoing president Fernandez, Macri went out with the intention of speaking to the press, but the overwhelming presence of journalists and citizens waiting for him forced him to return to the residence.

Fernandez has neither appeared in public nor made any statements on Macri's victory Sunday.

Macri will assume presidency on Dec. 10 putting an end to twelve years of Kirchner's governments.
