Last Wednesday, the former Minister of Finance released a pro-democracy manifesto signed by him and other names considered as possible candidates for the 2022 elections, such as the governor of São Paulo, João Doria, the former Minister of Health Luiz Henrique Mandetta, the governor of Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite, in addition to the entrepreneur João Amoedo (New) and the presenter Luciano Huck. The manifesto says that “three decades after the 1988 constitution, Brazilian democracy is threatened”, says the manifesto. The disclosure took place in the same week that President Jair Bolsonaro carried out a ministerial reform and changed the command of Foreign Affairs, Defense, the Attorney General’s Office, the Government Secretariat, the Civil House and Justice and Public Security. The text does not speak of candidacy for the next elections, but all signatories disagree with Bolsonaro, which may signal a slate for 2022.
Thrilled by the kindness of the health professionals who are so fighting for the vaccination and protection of our people. This is called humanity! Vaccine for everyone now! Emergency aid of R $ 600 now! Long live the science! Long live SUS!
