I’m not going to say it I’m not going to say all (the applicants) are good, Of course, better than those that the conservative bloc can postulate.”, he expressed.
“Before, in the conservative conception, because the people did not exist, politics was made by politicians with their mouthfuls, their agreements, not now, now the main protagonist is the people, it is the people, then they can be on top seeking positions or fighting, but In the end, it is the people that will decide,” assured the president.
