Toucans heard by Prime Time Zone affirm that the party has always adopted an independent posture in relation to the Planalto Palace; ‘We vote in favor of what is good for Brazil’, says a deputy
This Friday, the 12th, the National Executive of PSDB unanimously approved the permanence of Bruno Araújo (PE) as national president of the acronym. The decision represented a defeat for the governor of São Paulo, João Doria (PSDB), and it was another chapter of the internal crisis that has hit the party since Arthur Lira (PP-AL), as president from Chamber of Deputies. A Young pan listened to parliamentarians and Tucan leaders to explain why a PSDB wing is against systematic opposition to the president’s government Jair Bolsonaro, a position publicly defended by Doria.
On Wednesday, 10, the governor of São Paulo said that the PSDB had decided to oppose the Bolsonaro government and defended that party members who “understand they need or should offer support” to the Planalto Palace ask to leave. “It doesn’t make any sense for the PSDB to be condescending and adhering to President Jair Bolsonaro. This has already cost us votes in the election of the Federal Chamber, where some PSDB deputies, led by Aécio Neves, voted for Arthur Lira, voted alongside the government, in favor of Jair Bolsonaro, and against the principles of defending the PSDB’s position in most. Since this leadership was by Aécio Neves, from now on, considering that the PSDB defines that it will be opposition to the federal government, Deputy Aécio Neves does not have another opposition: either he joins the PSDB and starts to oppose the government or ask to leave and go find a party where you can exercise your adherence and exalt Jair Bolsonaro and Bolsonarism, ”said the toucan.
In a note, Aécio Neves reacted to Doria’s statements and mentioned the “BolsoDoria”, a slogan used by the then candidate for the government of São Paulo in the 2018 campaign. “If Mr. João Dória, by election strategy, wants to wear a new opposition outfit to try to erase the memory that he appropriated Bolsonaro’s name to win the elections in São Paulo, through the unforgettable Bolsodoria, who does so, without using improperly and opportunistically other members of the party, ”said the former senator.
In the evaluation of three federal deputies heard by the Young pan, Doria “went out of tune” when criticizing Aécio Neves and asking the federal government for the independence party. “The PSDB has always had an independent stance in relation to the Bolsonaro government. We vote in favor of what is good for Brazil, especially at this time of crisis. We will be against what Brazilians are not interested in. The speech of the governor gave the impression that we were part of the government base, which is not true ”, a Gaucho parliamentarian told the report. “It is precisely because we are driven by this commitment to the country that we are not going to follow the path of the worse, the better. The path of the opposition through the opposition does not interest us ”, evaluated another deputy of the acronym.
A third member of the federal bench recalled that, in 2019, federal deputy Samuel Moreira (PSDB-SP) was the reporter of the pension reform in the special commission that analyzed the proposal. “If the PSDB opposed the opposition, it would be contradictory to have the Social Security report with Congressman Samuel”, he summarized.
