The red surprise Ernesto Talvi did not want to define yet his candidate for vice president. If Sanguinetti said he was fully predisposed to integrate it, Talvi, according to the large percentage of his vote, preferred to wait a few more days, for such an economist to analyze in detail who will be his formula partner.
Like the Colorados, they preferred to wait to define the candidate as vice president.
Although Carolina Cosse expressed minutes after meeting the results that in her opinion the name of the candidate / vice president had to leave one of the already ex-candidates, that idea was diluted in the course of the hours.
Later, both Christian Di Candia and Monica Xavier expressed to Canal 4 that they preferred to define the formula by consensus.
