A dinner offered by the Esfera group, owned by businessman João Carlos Camargo, will receive federal deputy and former Minister of Health Alexandre Padilha (PT), in São Paulo, this Thursday (9).
Padilha has been moving through the wheels of the market as an emissary of the PT in the pre-campaign of former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. This time, the deputy will meet with around 40 businessmen and bankers to discuss the party’s ideas for the economy.
THE CNN Padilha said that he intends to convey to businessmen the indication that Lula will not make any move without dialogue.
This week the preview of the PT government program indicated, once again, the party’s intention to revoke the labor reform. Padilha has already mentioned the matter in previous meetings and explained that revoking the reform is not the former president’s idea.
To the report, businessmen who will be at the event mentioned the regulation of temporary work as a point to be discussed with PT members within the reform.
“He [Lula] is very bothered by the fact, for example, that a woman who works with an application does not have maternity leave. He never used the word revoke anything. As soon as his government starts, he wants to be at a negotiating table with the government, businessmen and workers. This will be stated in the government program presented in August”, declared Padilha.
In the document, the party also indicates its intention to end the spending ceiling created in the government of President Temer. The rule limits the growth of most public expenditures to the inflation recorded in the 12 months through June of the previous year. Padilha said that there is no absurdity in revising the rule.
“We have a country with 20 million people in a situation of hunger, more than 100 million in food insecurity, a very serious educational gap as a result of the pandemic, a queue at the SUS, a drop in public investment. It is not absurd for us to debate this review in 2023 to face serious problems that the country has had, above all, from the pandemic ”, he said.
In addition to Padilha, the group has already heard names from PT members such as the president of the acronym, Gleisi Hoffmann, the deputy and coordinator of Fernando Haddad’s campaign, Emídio Souza and the former minister of finance, Guido Mantega.
Now, the group demands a meeting with pre-candidates to present them a document with suggestions with measures for, according to them, the unlocking of economic growth.
On the 26th, ex-president Lula and ex-governor Geraldo Alckmin (PSB) should participate in a dinner promoted by the Prerogativas group. About one hundred lawyers were invited and must donate resources, with a minimum value of 20 minutes, for the party to use in this pre-campaign phase.
THE CNN will hold the first presidential debate of 2022. The clash between the candidates will be broadcast live on August 6, on TV and on our digital platforms.
