Senator is critical of the federation with the PSDB and was unhappy with the way Roberto Freire leads the party: ‘Brazil demands renewal in politics’

Jefferson Rudy / Agência Senado – 03/08/2022Alessandro Vieira joined Citizenship in December 2018

the senator Alessandro Vieira informed this Saturday, 12th, that he asked for the disaffiliation of the Citizenship after just over three years in the party. unhappy with the way Roberto Freire leads the party, Vieira said that “the urgent need for political renewal has been pointed out in every poll and election for years, but parliamentarians and party leaders prefer to ignore this reality and invest in the maintenance of their fiefdoms and privileges, delaying or even preventing the formation and consolidation of new leaderships”.

In addition to not being enthusiastic about the federation between Citizenship and PSDB, already approved by the party, the parliamentarian says that Freire goes in the opposite direction of what society demands and tries to perpetuate himself in the presidency of the acronym. “Brazil demands renewal in politics, and Cidadania responds by changing its statute and guaranteeing that Roberto Freire will remain in the presidency for 34 years. Due to evident incompatibility, I declare my disaffiliation from the party. Democracy requires public spirit and detachment.”

Alessandro Viera gained notoriety during the Covid-19 CPI and, from there, he paved the way to become a pre-candidate for the presidency. The union with the PSDB, however, was an obstacle to his plans, since the toucans want João Doria in the electoral race. In a note released by his press office, he did not make it clear whether he will still try to reach the Planalto Palace in this year’s elections. “The next steps will be defined together with our political construction partners in Sergipe and Brasília, with all the transparency that characterizes our work,” he said.

One of the biggest problems we face in Brazil is the absolute distance between popular sentiment and the conduct of national public figures. The urgent need for political renewal has been pointed out in every poll and election for years, but parliamentarians and party leaders prefer to ignore this reality and invest in the maintenance of their fiefdoms and privileges, delaying or even preventing the formation and consolidation of new leaderships. The first consequence of this stance is the growing discredit of the political class, also confirmed in surveys, but even more serious is the representation gap that widens every year in Brazil, opening space for irresponsible populists.

I joined Cidadania in December 2018, in a context of political renewal and party modernization, which was materialized in the Statute, with a ban on infinite reelections and openness to new social movements. The intention was precisely to represent the popular yearning for a modern and diverse party. Over the years, I am fully convinced that I have represented this sentiment in the Senate and also within the party, with coherence, public spirit and transparency as guiding principles of my work. These same principles, in view of the breach of the renewal commitment, with the amendment of the Statute and maintenance of Roberto Freire as president, a condition that he will hold for 34 years, lead to the conclusion that it is absolutely unfeasible for me to remain as a member of Cidadania.

I publicly express my respect for the members and parliamentarians, with whom I have lived very fruitfully in recent years, in particular my colleagues on the bench Leila Barros and Eliziane Gama. I am sure that we will be together on the journey in defense of democracy and Brazilians, even if in different political parties. The next steps will be defined together with our political construction partners in Sergipe and Brasília, with all the transparency that characterizes our work.
