he PCdoB confirmed on Wednesday (1st) the candidacy of Manuela D’Avila to the Presidency of the Republic during a convention of the party in the Chamber of Deputies, in Brasilia. Former federal deputy and former councilwoman, Manuela D’Ávila is a state deputy in Rio Grande do Sul.

In a speech during the convention, Manuela D’Ávila, defended the unity of the candidates considered of the left. Later, in an interview, she was asked about the possibility of appearing as a deputy on a plaque headed by a candidate from another party.

“Our candidacy, since being put on November 18, has always defended the unity of our political field. We have made a number of public appeals and we still have some time.

In the last seven presidential elections, since 1989, PCdoB integrated the coalition led by the PT and supported as candidates the petistas Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff.

  • All candidates made official to the President of the Republic

“Of all this persecution the highest point is the arrest of President Lula. Lula is arrested because he leads the polls. Lula is arrested because, loose, he would win the election. Our candidacy has always borne the Free Lula, because we do not only want his freedom, we want to assert the Constitution, “he said.

Lula da Silva was arrested on April 7, after being sentenced by the Federal Regional Court of the 4th Region (TRF-4) to 12 years and 1 month in prison for passive corruption and money laundering in the case of the triplex in Guarujá (SP) . Lula says he’s innocent .

“I am a candidate because we believe in the need to, during the next 60 days, not lower the flag of Lula’s defense of freedom, unjustly imprisoned by this state of exception,” he said.

About a deputy, Manuela said he must wait until the deadline for the definition. “The deputy is also arguing internally. Let’s wait for the limit,” he said.

The candidate recalled that this is the third time that the legend has disputed the election for the presidency in almost 100 years of existence. He affirmed that this candidacy is “the construction of the exit to the serious crisis that the country faces”.

“Our candidacy is building the way out of the serious crisis that our country is facing. We will be the ones that will dialogue with women and men and say that it is inadmissible to give up our country and to stop voting,” he said.
