It becomes strategic for the [Luciano] Bivar and the feds win”, said federal deputy Junior Bozzella (União Brasil-SP), to the CNN Brasil, on the platform that Moro could also open for the president of União Brasil and pre-candidate for the Presidency of the Republic, Luciano Bivar, in São Paulo.
In order to get around the situation, Rodrigo Garcia came forward and guaranteed support for Bivar in the state. “União Brasil is the biggest party in my future coalition. Your presidential candidate, Luciano Bivar, with my support, will have an open platform for your candidacy.”
