“The problems that exist mental health , for which we have proposed concrete solutions; the precariousness of work ; the serious situation of gender based violence ; the cruelty of the crimes, I collect all of that in the campaign throughout Uruguay and at the same time I collect enormous enthusiasm from the militants,” Cosse listed.

In that sense, he stressed the importance of the Frente Amplistas remaining united during the campaign. “We have to change this. From the anguish of living through situations of this type, people say ‘I have to change this’.

Topolansky claims to have no “certainty” that if cosse The internal Broad Front can defeat the parties of the current government alliance in a potential runoff in the month of November.

“The country does not end in Saint Lucia Riverthe country goes there, until San Javieruntil Javier de Vianauntil Pirarajáuntil Laurelsthere is a lot in this territory, it is very diverse,” Topolansky pointed out in reference to the political “modes” of cosse.

Mujica also doubts Cosse

In mid-February, the former president questioned the possibility of Cosse winning the elections if she came first in the internal elections.

Now, the former president considered that the victory of Orsi in June is the only thing that can lead to an eventual victory in October, against, possibly, the Herrerismo as the predominant sector of the National Party -and Alvaro Delgado as the leader who is best suited to occupy that position, according to surveys.

“Cosse is great but she doesn’t beat the whites because they don’t support her internally, and we lost the (2019) elections internally,” he said, when asked if Carolina Cosse, the former mayor of Montevideo and also a Frente Amplista candidate, could not be an option against the government coalition.
