Sources close to the electoral pre-campaign of the Workers’ Party (PT) indicated that in Natal, Lula is attending this Thursday the 1st Northeast Family Agriculture Fair and expects to have lunch later with the governors of the nine states of the region.
The former labor leader will participate at a public act focused on small and medium rural producers, cooperativism and solidarity economy.
According to the official program disclosed by the PT state leadership, the worsening of hunger in the country, which currently has more than 33.1 million Brazilians with nothing to eat, will be the central theme of Lula’s meeting with the nine governors of the northeastern region.
After his visit to Natal, the former president will continue to Maceio, capital of the northeast state of Alagoas, and then to Aracaju, the main city of the territorial division of Sergipe, also in that region.
To date, PT pre-candidate Lula leads all opinion polls to the October elections, in which ultra-right President Jair Bolsonaro intends a reelection.
