Respecting the principle of proportionality, the largest benches indicate the main positions for the board of directors of the House
The climate of choice has already taken over the corridors of Legislative Assembly of São Paulo (Alesp) and it is almost certain that the name launched by Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB), congressperson Carlão Pignatari, win the dispute to succeed Cauê Macris in charge of the House. The reason is that a traditional caption agreement with Workers’ Party (PT) it’s the Democrats (DEM), which obeys the principle of proportionality, usually guarantees the presidency to toucans. The first secretary should stay with the PT and the second with the DEM, remembers deputy Paulo Fiorilo (PT). “PT has always defended proportionality. The largest benches indicate the largest positions. The board directs the plenary sessions, the work, and it must be represented by the main parties. ”
Faced with the favoritism of Pignatari, who currently occupies the position of government leader at Alesp, opposition parliamentarians are looking for solutions to curb the possible victory. The deputy Janaína Paschoal (PSL), says that supporting the candidacy of Coronel Telhada (PP) is part of a strategy. “And I firmly understand that if three or four parties take separate candidacies they will all be helping the government,” he said. In turn, Telhada knows that the race is tough, but believes in a favorable outcome. “I have a lot of isolated deputies supporting me, Rep. Sergeant Neri, Rep. Márcio Nakashima, Rep. Edna Macedo herself, Janaína Paschoal. Some deputies who are with me, are from the PSL and are committed to the PSL candidate, but we are talking and I believe that these deputies will come with us. Today, I would have an average of 15 to 20 deputies with me, ”he said. By opposition, state deputy Major Mecca (PSL) is also in the running. The leader of PSOL, deputy Mônica Seixas, should launch her own candidacy in the coming days.
