the president of Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM), on Monday, 12, changed the conversation about a possible candidacy for the Presidency of the Republic in 2022. The speech of the parliamentarian is a response to the matter of the UOL, which published on Monday that Pacheco would be studying a change of acronym to apply for the Palácio do Planalto. According to the report, the president of the Senate will join the PSD to be able to enter the dispute. Pacheco, however, informed that he will not speak about the matter. “I will not discuss the 2022 electoral process now,” said the senator, who said his main focus is 2021. “My commitment is to the stability of the country, and that requires focusing on the many problems we still have in 2021,” he said.

The politician started his career in the old PMDB in 2014. At the time, Pacheco was elected federal deputy. In 2018, he ran as a pre-candidate for the government of Minas Gerais by the PMDB, but faced resistance within the acronym. For this reason, the parliamentarian left the party and joined the Democrats. In the new caption, Pacheco tried to get his candidacy for governor of Minas Gerais once again, but the DEM decided to support the PSDB’s name. Thus, the politician ran for a seat in the Federal Senate. In 2021, Rodrigo Pacheco won Simone Tebet (MDB) in disputed for the presidency of the House.
