Former governor and vice-presidential nominee on the future ticket of ex-president Lula (PT), Geraldo Alckmin (PSB) participates this Wednesday (4th) in a meeting at the Perseu Abramo Foundation (FPA), in São Paulo, to discuss issues related to the government program, especially in the economic area.
“I’m going to listen to them, talk about proposals,” he told the column.
The entity, founded by the PT, is one of the main formulators of studies for public policies. The president of the FPA, Aloizio Mercadante, will be one of those present in the conversation with the former governor. In addition, economists from the Foundation’s Economic Public Policies Accompanying Center must be at the meeting.
In March, Mercadante invited economist Pérsio Arida, who was the coordinator of the Alckmin economic program in 2018 and one of the fathers of the Real Plan, to a conversation at the FPA. This time, however, Arida said she will not attend the meeting. “I didn’t even know about this meeting. I haven’t had any contact with the PT since the conversation with Mercadante,” he said.
Help with important sectors
As shown in the column, the PT leadership has agreed with Alckmin on some agendas with segments considered important in the economy.
The idea is that, shortly after Lula’s pre-candidacy is made official next Saturday (7th), Alckmin will have meetings with representatives of agribusiness, the automotive sector and also medical entities.
