Candidate for the Senate for the PSB, the former governor of São Paulo Márcio França celebrated the choice of his wife and co-religionist, the teacher Lucia France, as a candidate for lieutenant governor on the plate Fernando Haddad, of PT.
“I’m so proud! My partner for over 30 years, Lúcia Franca is officially running for vice-governor of São Paulo alongside Fernando Haddad! An example of a woman, mother, teacher and businesswoman! I have no doubt that it will contribute to a fairer State with more opportunities for all. Good luck, Lucia and Haddad! You are ready for São Paulo!” wrote França on social media.
When announcing the choice, Haddad said that, after many negotiations with the six allied parties “in search of a woman” to compose the ticket, he asked the PSB to indicate the name. “The nomination came to me and I couldn’t be happier: the educator Lúcia França will be our deputy”, declared the former mayor of São Paulo and former Minister of Education.
