Karina Oliva, former candidate for metropolitan governor and for the Senate for the Partido Comunes, raised her voice to refer to the accusations against her for irregular financing of her electoral campaign, pointing to the work carried out by her campaign manager, Carolina García.

In an interview with MegaNoticias, Oliva made it clear that “I want to clarify, and I think that is super important, I want to be super emphatic. First in my campaign there were no millionaire salaries and there was no objection to the provision of services by those people. To be clear, both in the first round and in the second round”.

However, the former candidate recognized that “one has to be much more rigorous with this type of action, with this type of payment, which should not be high, because citizens demand greater austerity, especially in the critical moments that they live the country”.

Along with this, she was consulted about the controversial feminist breakfast held to close her campaign for governor, which was managed by Marcelo Riffo’s company for 50 million.

For Karina Oliva, “one of my biggest mistakes was not knowing how to explain that, but I am going to be blunt. There was no breakfast for 50 million, there is no bill or invoice declared or issued for 50 million, nor is there a request for reimbursement for 50 million.

“This invoice was never issued because it was a quote,” he said.

Regarding his senatorial campaign, where the flyer services were provided by a company belonging to a person linked to the SQM case, Milton Lee, Oliva pointed to Carolina García’s responsibility.

“It bothers me a lot, it makes me very angry, that my campaign manager had approved a service provision with this company. Making that political decision of this provision of services without telling the candidate seems to me to be a breach of trust. Sadly, I learned from the press that Milton Lee was associated with one of my campaign bills. And it disappoints me more today when it comes to accusing me of a decision that I did not make, that Carolina García made, “he argued.

Regarding her relationship with President Gabriel Boric, Karina Oliva recalled when she walked away from her candidacy in the middle of the race for La Moneda.

“I can understand that the presidential candidate at that time would distance himself from the accusations. However, I would have liked not to find out about it from the press. I would have liked them to ask me, a whatsapp, a call, it’s true, you can prove that what is said is false, “he said.
