Around – The giant doll of President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) that, by determination of the Electoral Justice, should be withered in some warehouse, continues to circulate in Mato Grosso do Sul. The inflatable prop, which was “parked” in the committee of state deputy João Henrique Catan (PL), passed through Mundo Novo and Dourados, as announced by the reelection candidate himself. At least so far, he seems to ignore the search and seizure order, given by Judge Luiz Felipe Medeiros Vieira on September 16th.
On the Paraguay River – During the last days of the campaign, Catan even hired a boat to make the doll “walk” along the Paraguay River and released a video yesterday afternoon (28), showing the repercussions in Corumbá. He tried to go along with using the artifact to get voters’ attention, but he couldn’t. On the 20th, the Electoral Court analyzed a writ of mandamus in which Catan’s defense admits that the doll “is the property of the petitioner” and argues that it is not irregular propaganda. For Judge Alexandre Branco Pucci, however, there is no reason to overturn the decision that ordered the doll to be apprehended.
protest – The PT considered “political and legal persecution” of judge José Eduardo Cury to punish its candidate for the Senate, Tiago Botelho, who had his radio and television advertising time revoked for having propagated a statement by former minister Tereza Cristina, candidate for the Senate. , that in Brazil “we are not very hungry, we have mangoes”. For the party, the magistrate “torn” the Constitution and “affronted democracy”.
surveillance – Energisa has put together a special action plan to ensure that there is no lack of energy at polling stations in the first round of elections, next Sunday. The company, responsible for supplying 79 of the 74 municipalities in Mato Grosso do Sul, in addition to carrying out preventive maintenance at strategic points until the 2nd, also set up a central to monitor, in real time, the electoral zones. On voting day, teams will be on hand to correct bugs if necessary.
The last – This Thursday (29), presidential candidates face each other in the last debate before the first round and the candidates from Mato Grosso do Sul, Simone Tebet (MDB) and Soraya Thronicke (UB) are confirmed. In addition to Lula (PT) and Bolsonaro (PL), they face Ciro Gomes (PDT), Father Kelmon (PTB) and Felipe D’Ávila (Novo). As a criterion for choosing the seven presidential candidates that will go into battle, TV Globo used the representativeness of the candidates’ parties in the National Congress, of at least 5 parliamentarians.
preparation – Simone participates in a walk in Rio de Janeiro in the morning and reserves the rest of the day to prepare for the meeting with the opponents, mediated by Willian Bonner, starting at 22:30 (Brasília time). Soraya did not disclose any other commitment for the day, other than the debate.
At OAB – Candidates for the Government of Mato Grosso do Sul participate this Thursday (29) in a sabbath at the OAB-MS (Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil). They must submit proposals for the category. Each candidate will have five minutes to tell their story and talk to legal professionals, starting at 6:30 pm.
Foot on the brake – The agendas that were previously full seem to have fewer and fewer commitments. Before the event at the OAB, André Puccinelli (MDB) will give interviews and meet with the campaign team, Capitão Contar (PRTB) will visit companies and Eduardo Riedel (PSBD) will also meet with the team, supporters and coalition candidates. Marquinhos Trad (PSD) and Rose Modesto (UB) continue their wanderings through the neighborhoods of the Capital.
Final stretch – Giselle Marques (PT) declares the campaign closed as of tomorrow. She will meet with supporters at Fetems (Federation of Education Workers of Mato Grosso do Sul), where there will be a celebration and a screen for the candidate to watch the presidential debate along with the militancy.
Economy – Despite inflation, which has increased the value of several contracts, the Campo Grande City Hall saved just over R$ 1 million in stage B of the drainage and asphalt work in Bairro Nova Lima. The initial budget was made in 2016, when the contract was closed at R$ 23.9 million. In the end, the work cost R$ 22.9 million and the city government will use the amount left over in stages C and D of the work, which are already underway in the neighborhood, in the North region of the Capital.
