Former São Paulo governor Geraldo Alckmin (PSB), pre-candidate for the vice-presidency of the Republic on the ticket of ex-president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), said that the government program of the duo for the dispute for the Palácio do Planalto will be built democratically. Alckmin criticized President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) and said that “a democratic government plan is not made on top of motorcycle riders and ja ski“.
The vice-presidential candidate referred to the events held by Bolsonaro supporters since 2021, when the current president began to attend meetings with motorcyclists in various parts of the country. More recently, he also started to participate in “lanchaciatas”, water rides with wealthy Bolsonaristas. According to Alckmin, it is necessary to build proposals “seeing the people and talking”.
“People need to eat. There is enormous expectation, great hope with the progress of this civic campaign. They are not promises, they are commitments. The first commitment is with those who need it most, with those who have lost their jobs, with those who are hungry and with those who have been taken back to misery,” he said.

Lula and Alckmin’s campaign released, at an event held this Tuesday (21), new guidelines for their future government program. The document lists 121 points that are considered essential for the “reconstruction of Brazil”. Click here and do the download in full.
The proposals mainly focus on sustainable economic recovery and social development. The text states that the current economic policy is primarily responsible for the decomposition of the population’s living conditions, instability and setbacks in production and consumption.
The document is a new version of a draft sent to the parties in early June. At the time, the text contained a list of 90 points. In addition to the inclusion of new items, the wording of some proposals was changed by representatives of the other parties that make up the presidential ticket besides the PT (PV, PSB, PCdoB, PSOL, Rede and Solidarity).
At this Tuesday’s event, the virtual platform was also presented, which will give space, according to the campaign, to “wider popular participation in the construction of the government program”. Entitled “Together for Brazil”, the virtual environment, which will be open for about 30 days, is the next step in building the government program.
The tool allows for the submission of suggestions, as well as the holding of debates, forums, discussion and consultations, in a broad involvement of civil society. According to the ticket, there will also be an organization channel to involve the participation of popular committees and organizations of popular movements.

“In parallel to this, dialogue tables will be opened to advance the debate with national entities that have already articulated to forward proposals to the government plan and deepen the formulations”, says a note from the presidential ticket.
