Paraná Pesquisas released this Tuesday (14) the first survey for the municipal elections in Belo Horizonte, in 2024. Senator Carlos Viana (Podemos) is victorious in the three situations suggested to the respondents.

In another scenario, with the presence of federal deputy Nikolas Ferreira (PL), the most voted in the country in the 2022 election, the difference for Viana is only 3.1%, within the poll’s margin of error.

Federal deputy Duda Salabert (PDT), on the other hand, shoots to the second position in a scenario without Nikolas Ferreira and without Eduardo Costa (Cidadania), who was even quoted as vice-president of the current governor Romeu Zema (Novo), with 11.6% of voting intentions.

The survey also showed that 57.1% of respondents approve of the administration of the current mayor, against 28.9% who disapprove. The survey was conducted between March 9th and 12th and the margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
