In a letter released, he said that he will request a union leave after his announcement for the upcoming election during the plenary session of this left-wing force on September 25.

To work as the future president of the Broad Front, Pereira is supported by the Movement of Popular Participation, the Communist Party, Asamblea Uruguay, Fuerza Renovadora, the Christian Democratic Party, Plataforma, Vertiente Artiguista, Movimiento Humanista (former leaders of the Christian Democratic Party) and other groups.

Pereira said that his leave will expire on the inauguration day of the 14th PIT.CNT Congress, on November 5, when he will conclude his mandate and 32 years of union life as a teacher.

‘As you can imagine, I am going through emotional mourning,’ he wrote in the letter in which he alluded to his comrades with whom he shared the collective leadership of ‘our union tools.’

Up to three candidates will be announced at the plenary session that will take place over the weekend. So far, the other two candidates are Deputy Secretary General of the Socialist Party, Gonzalo Civila, and former legislators Ivonne Pasda and Carmen Beramendi.
