It will be the sixth time that Eymael will run for president. The party’s convention took place at the Legislative Assembly of the State of São Paulo (Alesp), in the capital of São Paulo.
“We are going to take our country where it deserves to be, at the service of families in Brazil. The core commitment of Christian Democracy is a commitment to family values. All of us Christian Democrats have that commitment. Looking at Brazilians, taking care of Brazilians, taking care of each other. This is what the nation expects from the next president of the Republic”, said the candidate.
The candidate for vice-presidency of the Republic was not made official this Tuesday by the party and will be chosen in the coming days by the executive committee of the national directory of the legend.
