the minister Ricardo Lewandowskiof TSEaccepted a request for Junior Euripides and returned to Lula’s political ally the national command of the pros. It is the third time in the week that the party changes hands by court rulings. Eurípedes initially questioned in the TSE the decision of the Court of Justice of the DF and Territories that removed him from the presidency. He claimed that the decision would not be up to the common justice, an argument that was accepted this Friday by Lewandowski.
Earlier this week, Eurípedes wrecked coach Pablo Marçal’s presidential campaign by declaring support for Lula in this year’s race. A series of judicial decisions that reached the STJ made the party’s command take turns in the hands of two groups – one that defends its own candidacy with Marçal and the other that wants to stick with the PT.
This Friday, Lewandowski, without giving an opinion on the merits, accepted Euripides’ request for urgent relief and indicated that the Electoral Justice is the harvest for the resolution of the conflict. “In view of this situation, there is plausibility in the claim of the complainant, in the sense that the TJDFT ruling, in the absence of the Electoral Justice, would have influenced matters strictly related to the 2022 general elections, such as the choice of candidates, the formation of coalitions and the distribution of resources from the Special Fund for Financing Campaigns”, he said.
“Furthermore, the fact that contradictory decisions were handed down by the Superior Court of Justice, which changed the party composition in a space of three days, militates in favor of the claimant, in the face of the instability and legal uncertainty that is created in the scenario of the general elections, especially when procedural legislation seeks to guarantee legal certainty, protection of trust and preservation of the stability of legal relationships.”
