Michelle Bolsonaro, former first lady of Brazil, will take office as president of PL Mulher next Tuesday (21), in a ceremony at the Hípica Hall, in Brasília. According to the newspaper The globe, the wife of former president Jair Bolsonaro (PL) departs from the United States on her return to Brazil this Saturday (18). She had traveled last Tuesday (14) to meet Bolsonaro for the first time since he left the country at the end of 2022.

Michelle’s inauguration event takes place the day before her 41st birthday and the same day as her husband’s 68th birthday. The ceremony should last two hours, according to the Globe. The former first lady will give a speech and will also lead a panel interviewing some women. The PL has Michelle as one of its main bets for the coming years. The idea is that she becomes, like her husband, a political force to help the party grow.

According to GlobeMichelle has a meeting scheduled with the board of directors of the PL on Monday (20), the day before taking office in the PL Mulher.
