Pre-candidate for the Government of Minas in the 2022 elections in October, Alexandre Kalil (PSD) said that Brazil will have a president from Cruzeirense if Lula (PT) wins the presidential race. Kalil, president of Atlético between 2008 and 2014, joked about the situation and said that the governor will be Atlético if he is successful at the state level.
“I usually say that everyone has a flaw, at last I found a flaw in President Lula. So, unfortunately we are going to have a president from Cruzeiro. I confess, worse, I confess, Corinthians and Cruzeiro. So, God willing, if God blesses us, we will have a president from Cruzeiro, but the governor will be Atletico,” he said at a press conference this Saturday in Governador Valadares, a mining town in the Vale do Rio Doce region.
“(Luiz) Dulci is an America fan. Here, I unfortunately didn’t learn to be an Atletico, I became a Cruzeiro fan. But these days I was somehow happy, because I saw little America, a team that systematically attends Serie B, the team that wins once and falls the next, wins one year and falls the next, but I saw the little America beat the giant Atltico Mineiro,” said Lula, also a Corinthians fan, during a visit to the Minas Gerais capital Belo Horizonte.
In addition to Kalil, Romeu Zema (Novo), Miguel Corra (PDT), Carlos Viana (PL), Miguel Corra (PDT), Marcus Pestana (PSDB), Renata Regina (PCB), Lorene Figueiredo (Psol) and Saraiva Felipe (PSB) ) stand as pre-candidates in the dispute for the Minas Gerais government.
President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL), Ciro Gomes (PDT), Andr Janones (Avante), Simone Tebet (MDB), Vera Lcia (PSTU), Pablo Maral (Pros), Eymael (DC), Felipe d’vila (Novo), Sofia Manzano (PCB), Luciano Bivar (Unio) and Leonardo Pricles (UP) are other names considered pre-candidates.
