Explosive, PDT’s pre-candidate for the presidency, Ciro Gomes, runs the serious risk of being left without a platform in Minas Gerais. It is the second largest electoral college in the country. In recent history, no candidate for the Palácio do Planalto won the elections without being victorious in the state.
But behold, Ciro decided to go head-to-head with the state directorate of his own party, stating that the pedestrian pre-candidate for the government of Minas, Miguel Correa, will not be the official candidate of the party in October. Result: the president of the local PDT, federal deputy Mário Heringer, felt disenfranchised and resigned.
The reason for Ciro’s clumsy statement was, so to speak, pure jealousy. Miguel Correa was from the PT and maintained a good relationship with the PT candidate for the Planalto, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. whom he publicly praised, while stressing that he would vote for Cyrus.
The presidential candidate decided to curse his party colleague with a “dirty record” and who “had left the PT yesterday to join the PDT”.
Well, now the party in the state has entered a crisis, precisely at the moment when Lula has just closed an alliance with the mayor of Belo Horizonte, Alexandre Kalil, from the PSD. And that Bolsonaro discusses an agreement with Governor Romeu Zema, from Novo.
In other words, when the election in Minas Gerais tends to become more polarized, Ciro Gomes decides, by himself, to isolate himself. It’s a bad move.
