After the Electoral Court barred Roberto Jefferson’s candidacy for the presidency this Thursday (09/01) and gave the PTB 10 days to choose new names for the presidency and for the post of vice on the ticket, the party has already made its choice.
According to leaders of the acronym, who will assume the party’s candidacy for the Planalto will be the Bahian Kelmon Luís da Silva Souza, until then vice-president in Jefferson’s ticket. Known as Father Kelmon, he calls himself an orthodox priest but is not part of the communion of the Orthodox Churches in Brazil.
The religious gained some notoriety for pro-Bolsonaro statements on social media. Jefferson’s allies claim that Kelmon will vocalize what the acronym’s chief intended to say in the election campaign.
For the vice on the ticket, the party should nominate Pastor Luiz Cláudio Gamonal, director of the PTB’s Conservative Christian Movement.
