247 – Former federal deputy Jean Wyllys criticized President Lula after the head of state stated that identity-based candidacies should not be prioritized.
During the event of former mayor Marta Suplicy joining the PT, in São Paulo, on Friday, President Lula criticized candidates who enter politics simply because of factors such as race and gender. ‘The person has to cast themselves based on their qualities to contest elections. The person who has the vote in this country is the PT, and not the personal face of each one of us’, said Lula.
According to Wyllys, it is necessary to see that issues such as gender and race make people more vulnerable, which justifies the representation of these people in spaces of power.
‘What a MISTAKE, President Lula! It is impossible that there is no one on your team capable of explaining what intersectionality is and how subject positions engendered by identities other than class can make the subject more vulnerable; and, for this very reason, they ALSO need to be represented! There is no longer any reason to make this type of mistake in the 21st century!’, Wyllys wrote on his social networks.
