To the presenter Patrícia Calderón, the governor said he is proud to have promoted the meeting between the presidential candidates. “I would even say that the two have more convergences than divergences, I know that they both have a great responsibility to Brazil. Both President Lula, who was a great president, and Ciro, who is an extraordinary person, one of the smartest people I know in this country. People have no hope of that, but I will fight until the last moment so that we can approach and build an alliance at the national level in next year’s elections”, he said.

About his own political future, Santana evaluates the possibility of an election for the Federal Senate. The governor also spoke about the Covid-19 pandemic and stated that national leadership was lacking. “What was the big problem we faced in Brazil? It was the lack of national coordination, there was no national leadership to coordinate this process. The largest health authority in Brazil, which is the Ministry of Health, did not efficiently coordinate throughout this pandemic. Unfortunately, there was a mistake and it has been a mistake to lead the highest authority in the country, denying the pandemic, denying the vaccine“, said.
