One of Argentina’s Top Labor Leaders to Step Down, Eyes Soccer Post

BUENOS AIRES – General Confederation of Labor, or CGT, secretary-general Hugo Moyano, one of the most powerful labor leaders in Argentina, said he planned to step down from his post and was interested in seeking the presidency of the Argentine Soccer Federation, or AFA.

“I just finished my third consecutive term. You have to give the young people a bit of a chance to hold important posts,” Moyano said in an interview with the C5N television network late Saturday.

“There’s a group of clubs that are proposing me for the AFA (presidency), but I still have not decided. Anything can happen in life. It’d be interesting. There are several things that have to be corrected at the AFA, it should be representative and the clubs should have better financial conditions,” the 72-year-old labor leader said.

Moyano, a former lawmaker from Buenos Aires province and president of the Atletico Independiente soccer club, is one of the most powerful labor leaders in Argentina and has fought for the rights of workers.

He has served as secretary-general of the CGT, a Peronist labor federation, since 2004 and could be a rival of television personality Marcelo Tinelli in the race for the AFA presidency.

The AFA election will be held in late June.
