Lula in Rio – and he had no qualms about saying that as he looked at the competitor, at the other end of the table, who was watching him with a closed face. In the midst of the cold war between the two over the Senate seat, this was the first time that a more direct, face-to-face clash took place.
“Lula made it clear that he only has one platform in Rio: Marcelo Freixo. We will walk with you, my brother,” said Ceciliano, whose relationship with Governor Cláudio Castro (PL), a coreligionist from Jair Bolsonaro, worries allies of the socialist, who nodded when the president of Alerj spoke.

Castro, in fact, was also a reason for the climate in this Friday’s event, carried out by the PSB candidate himself. The governor’s opponent criticized the fact that he had increased the number of secretariats in the state to allocate positions. It turns out that Ceciliano, it is known, had a strong influence on the assembly of the Guanabara Palace after the impeachment of Wilson Witzel (PSC).
