He emphasized that the end of the covenant was against his will.

Asked if this would not jeopardize Roberto Cláudio’s candidacy, Cid stated that he does not want to jeopardize the possibility of the alliance being resumed in the second round and intends to work towards it.

There is no campaign material from Roberto Cláudio, or from any candidate for governor. But there is material from Camilo’s Senate campaign. Even Cid glues PT stickers.

When explaining the reason for the separation of the articulations, the senator made history of the alliance between the Ferreira Gomes and the PT in Ceará, since 1996, in Sobral. “I feel like a patron of this alliance, which later extended to the state.”

He explains that, if he takes over one of the sides in the first round, he will have difficulty working for the recomposition later. Check out the full reproduction of what the senator said here.
