The president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), said this Sunday night (30) that the decision of Brazilians to elect candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) as the next president of the Republic “should never be contested”.
“The majority registered at the polls should never be contested and we will move forward in the construction of a sovereign, fair country with fewer inequalities,” he said.
“To the elected president, the Chamber of Deputies congratulates him and reaffirms its commitment to Brazil, always with a lot of debate, dialogue and transparency. .
According to the congressman, “Brazil gave yet another demonstration of the vitality of the strength of its institutions”.
The parliamentarian stated that the time is to pacify the country and build new points to improve the lives of Brazilians.
“It’s time to disarm the spirits, reach out to opponents, debate, build points, proposals and practices that bring more development, jobs, health, education and efficient regulatory frameworks. Everything that is done from now on must have a single principle : to pacify the country and give a better quality of life to the Brazilian people”, he said.
