President Jair Bolsonaro joined the Liberal Party (PL) today (30). The act of signing the membership form was performed this morning during a ceremony promoted by the legend.
Elected in 2018 by the PSL, Bolsonaro left the party in November 2019 and was not affiliated with any party. The condition is necessary for the dispute in the 2022 general elections. So far, the president's eventual candidacy for re-election has not been made official.
During the event, Bolsonaro highlighted that the ceremony was a simple affiliation to the party and that it was not "launching anyone in charge".
"I feel like I'm at home here, inside the National Congress, that plenary of the Chamber of Deputies, in view of the huge number of congressmen present here. You bring me pleasant memories, memories of struggles, of clashes, but, above all, moments when we, together, did for our country. I came from among you. I spent 28 years in the Chamber of Deputies", he said.
Through social networks, the Minister of Regional Development, Rogério Marinho, confirmed that he has also joined the party and that he will be a pre-candidate for the Senate from Rio Grande do Norte.
