The governor of Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite (PSDB), returned to comment on his recent statement, the first made publicly, that he is homosexual. Considered one of the main names for the presidential race for the PSDB in 2022, the politician stated that he had nothing to hide and said that he was careful not to point out the information as a possible electoral advantage. “I wouldn’t let them try to make you believe I had something to hide, even more so without being something wrong. Therefore, I decided to speak at this moment, but without electoral calculation as they try to make us believe, because it is far from the election. Whether this will have an electoral effect positively or negatively is less relevant to me. It is important for me to be able to present myself as I am to the population”, he stated in an interview with the Court of Communication system, of which the Young Pan News Christmas is part. About being one of the possible names appointed by the PSDB for the 2022 elections, alongside governor João Doria and senator Tasso Jereissati , Leite stated that “he was summoned by the deputies and senators”. “I understand that I have something to collaborate with and that’s why I launched myself on this journey to help build an alternative path for the country”, he pointed out. The complete interview with Eduardo Leite is available on the Prime Time Zone Natal channel on Youtube.
