Gilberto Kassab e Cyrus Gomes exchanged praise on Tuesday and signaled the possibility of an alliance in this year’s presidential elections. In the morning, the national president of the PSD gave an interview to José Luiz Datena, on Rádio Bandeirantes, and said that the presidential candidate of PDT it would be “an extraordinary third way”, which he said he is still rooting for.
“He is very well prepared, has experience, will know how to make a good government, knows economics, knows management, right? He has energy, he has good health, he has all the conditions to be a good president of the Republic”, declared Kassab.
Through social networks, Ciro recently shared a video with excerpts from the speech of “friend Kassab” and thanked him “for saying in public what you have been telling me, very frankly, in private”.
“I say here what I have always told you: we are growing and we are going to surprise. Brazil needs us to break this hateful polarization”, wrote the presidential candidate.
Asked if it is possible for the PSD to form a coalition with Ciro, Kassab said he would respond in a “similar currency”: “it is not impossible, it is not impossible”.
The party leader also said that the pedetista is liked by many leaders of his party, but stressed that an alliance is difficult, because the party is heading towards not having its own candidacy. “We are consulting each state, each leadership,” he commented. He added that a coalition with Lula or Bolsonaro in the first round is also difficult.
Kassab also said that an eventual alliance of Ciro with any party, whether with the PSD or with União Brasil, has resulted in important results in terms of television time, even more than in the matter of resources for the campaign. And that the electoral propaganda will have some impact at the beginning of September.
“Ciro, who is an excellent candidate, can grow, he can, because more and more he is the only third way. The right question is ‘this third way’, which I think is Ciro, because I think the [João] Doria has difficulty, Simone [Tebet] It’s difficult… So the question we have to ask is: can this third way, which I think is Ciro, manage to have at least 10% spontaneous until the beginning of June, June 10th?”, questioned.
“Because if he has 10 in spontaneous, he will have 15 in research. Then the party will think: ‘well, if he has 15 points and from August onwards he will have television, because I will give television, my party, then this guy can win, because he will start with 15′” , concluded the president of the PSD.
