Vinícius Poit (Novo), pre-candidate for the government of São Paulo, defended today the privatization of companies linked to the São Paulo Executive, including Sabesp, which operates in the basic sanitation sector in the state.
“We have to get it off the ground and move towards privatization”, defended Poit during his participation in the series of UOL with the pre-candidates for the government of SP, carried out in partnership with Folha de S.Paulo.
In the interview, Poit said that Sabesp has been used to “generate cash”, but not with the intention of investing the money in actions aimed at improving health, safety and education in SP, but for the profits to be used during election periods, in order to attract votes.
Poit also promised, in addition to privatizing Sabesp, to increase the salary of police officers in the state. According to him, this can be done simply by cutting “privileges” from the public machine, including promoting the privatization of companies.
The Saturday was led by presenter Diego Sarza, alongside the columnist of the UOL Leonardo Sakamoto and Folha reporter Carolina Linhares.
