President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is expected to make a new series of trips through the States in the coming days. This type of “tour” by the President of the Republic in a year of municipal elections helps allies who will compete for power in the cities. The PT member transfers some of his votes to these candidates, especially in places where he is popular – such as the Northeast.

Voting will take place on October 6, but agreements on candidacies and other matters surrounding the elections are made in the previous months. Conventions for parties to choose their candidates must be held between July 20th and August 5th.

The PT member’s probable agenda for the next few days, released by the press office of Palácio do Planalto, involves visiting five cities in three different states. He will inaugurate works and appear in public with close politicians, such as the mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes (PSD).

Read below the travel schedule planned for the next few days for the President of the Republic:

Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday (2)

– Rio de Janeiro – Inauguration of Impa Tech, an undergraduate course at the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics.

– Niterói – Announcement of dredging works from Guanabara Bay to the city’s port.

Pernambuco on Thursday (4)

– Arcoverde – Opening of the Ipojuca Raw Water Pumping Station and section between Belo Jardim and Caruaru of the Agreste Pernambucano Water Pipeline.

– Goiana – Inauguration of the new Hemobrás medicine factory.
