    Mr. n Miley pursued radical policies, including replacing the country's peso with the US dollar, closing the central bank, and halving the number of ministries. He also proposed a referendum on the legality of abortion, relaxed gun regulation and called the climate crisis a “socialist lie.”

    “All these politicians who blame the human race for climate change are fakes and are only looking to raise money to fund the socialist bums who write fourth-rate newspapers,” Mr. Miley previously said.

    The outgoing government has left us with hyperinflation and our main challenge is to do everything possible to avoid such a catastrophe, which will result in the poverty rate exceeding 90 percent and the poverty rate exceeding 50 percent,” he said.

    “ For this reason, there is no alternative to austerity measures.”
