Pre-candidate for the presidency by the PDT, former governor Ciro Gomes officially still tries to nurture the hope that he will win a party for his alliance, but behind the scenes of his pre-campaign, the possibility of creating a pure slate is already under discussion. blood, that is, with a candidate for vice also of the PDT.
In this case, Ciro’s preferred name, which also has the support of the party’s national president, Carlos Lupi, is the former dean of USP, Suely Vilela. The information was anticipated in the podcast of the UOLthe Radar Elections.
The professor, who headed USP between 2006 and 2009, joined the PDT at the end of last year and the idea, initially, was that she would compete for a seat in the assembly in São Paulo. Now, however, she is already quoted for the presidential ticket.
Suely reached the second round of the Ribeirão Preto mayoral race in 2020 and was defeated by the toucan Duarte Nogueira. At the time, she ran for the PSB and had about 90,000 votes.
Ciro has not been able to establish alliances around his candidacy and is stuck in the polls with about 8% of the voting intentions.
The PDT’s hope still remains in relation to the PSD, of Gilberto Kassab, which tried to launch its own candidates, has already flirted with Lula and Bolsonaro, but is moving towards freeing the states for local alliances, without national commitment.
Another difficult bet by Ciro is União Brasil, by Luciano Bivar – which launches its pre-candidacy for the presidency this Tuesday (2nd).
