To open the week leading up to this year’s elections, the PT candidate for the Presidency of the Republic, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, promotes on Monday morning, 19, a political meeting with former candidates for the Planalto Palace. The idea is to reinforce the climate of a “broad front” around the PT candidacy and expand the offensive for the useful vote that makes a victory in the first round possible. Among the highlights, the former president of the Central Bank Henrique Meirelles (União Brasil), father of the spending ceiling in the Michel Temer government (MDB).

A name respected by the financial market, Meirelles is affiliated with União Brasil, which has Senator Soraya Thronicke as its candidate for president. He commanded the BC in the Lula administrations and was Minister of Finance in the Temer administration, when he approved economic reforms criticized by the PT. He competed for the Planalto Palace in 2018.

In a hotel in the south of São Paulo, the candidate for vice president on the PT ticket, Geraldo Alckmin (PSB), former Minister of the Environment Marina Silva (Rede), the leader of the Teto (MTST), Guilherme Boulos (PSOL), João Goulart Filho (PCdoB), and the former mayor of São Paulo Fernando Haddad (PT), candidate for governor of the state. The five disputed the Presidency of the Republic in 2018 and today they support Lula.

“We have a meeting with former presidential candidates who have many differences between them. I have many differences with Alckmin, Meirelles, but now we unite with the understanding that the election of President Lula is essential for the preservation of democracy”, said Boulos upon arriving at the event.

For the leader of the MTST, who is a candidate for federal deputy for São Paulo, this year’s election is a dispute between democracy and barbarism. “We are making a call, an invitation to all democrats, regardless of their differences, to unite to defeat fascism, backwardness, Bolsonaro and elect Lula in the first round. This meeting is very expressive,” he added.
