Federal deputy Cabo Gilberto (PL-PB) was approached by parties such as Republicans, União Brasil, Novo and Podemos after signaling that he was considering leaving the party.
Cabo Gilberto is part of the PL wing that is more aligned with former president Jair Bolsonaro and is a strong voice of opposition to the Lula (PT) government in the Chamber of Deputies. To interlocutors he has demonstrated his annoyance with alliances that the party’s national leadership has made in the states.
The parliamentarian has complained that he lost space in the PL in Paraíba. He commanded João Pessoa’s municipal directory, but was replaced by Marcelo Queiroga, Bolsonaro’s former Minister of Health.
In addition to Cabo Gilberto, other parliamentarians are considering leaving the party led by Valdemar Costa Neto because they disagree with alliances signed regionally. Among them is Ricardo Salles (SP), who intends to run for Mayor of São Paulo in 2024.
