Still recovering from the car accident he suffered at Christmas, the mayor of Marilândia do Sul, Aquiles Takeda Filho (PSD), made a point of participating, last Thursday night, in the inauguration ceremony of the Nova Amoreira District Mortuary Chapel . Even with his arm immobilized (photo), he unveiled the banner together with the acting mayor, vice Walmir Peres (PRD) and the rest of the team. “I needed to be present at that moment. It is a great achievement for our community”, said Aquiles, who has been out of office since the beginning of the year. In addition to being mayor, Aquiles is a director of the Paraná Saúde Consortium and the Association of State Intermunicipal Health Consortiums and Associations (Acispar).
The mayor of Godoy Moreira, Primis de Oliveira (PSD), met this Thursday all the new employees who will be collaborating in the municipality’s activities through an outsourced company. The main objective of the meeting was to present all of them to the employees who are already part of the effective and commissioned staff of the municipal administration. On the first day of work, the mayor invited everyone to carry out an action to combat dengue, taking into account the cases that occur in Godoy Moreira and other municipalities in the region. They participated in a raid in the city, together with other municipal employees.
No voting in transit
Brazilian voters need to pay attention. According to a warning from the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), there is no voting in transit in municipal elections, such as this one that will be held on October 6th this year. According to the organization, voting by transit only occurs in general elections. Therefore, anyone who is not in the city of their electoral domicile on the day of the election and is unable to go and vote must justify their absence. According to the TSE, around 156 million voters across Brazil are eligible to vote in this year’s elections for the positions of mayor, deputy and councilor. In Apucarana there are around 94.5 thousand.
Ricardo Barros ‘on the road’
The licensed federal deputy and state secretary of Industry and Commerce, Ricardo Barros (PP), has intensified his travels through the interior of Paraná in recent months, participating in meetings of municipal associations, inaugurations together with governor Ratinho Junior (PSD) and of other events. Like other politicians, Barros is trying to make his candidacy for the Federal Senate viable, in the event of an eventual revocation of the mandate of senator Sérgio Moro (União Brasil) by the Electoral Court. Barros has been talking to leaders of different parties regarding his possible candidacy.
Open Mouth back
The controversial former federal deputy and former councilor of Londrina, Emerson Miguel Petriv, known as Boca Aberta (PROS), transferred his electoral domicile to the neighboring municipality of Ibiporã, where he intends to run for Mayor in the election on October 6 this year. To consolidate his candidacy for mayor, however, Boca Aberta will need to resolve some legal issues within the scope of the Electoral Court. The politician lost his mandate as federal deputy and was also previously impeached in the Londrina City Council, facts that could compromise the approval of his candidacy in the Regional Electoral Court of Paraná (TRE-PR). We have to wait and see what will happen next.
