Dilma Rousseff: ‘Free or Jailed’ Lula Will Be Elected President

2 May 2018

Former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said Lula “is an idea,” the very “symbol of Brazil.”

Whether “free or imprisoned,” Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva “will be elected president” of Brazil following October’s general election according to former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. Speaking during a visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina on Workers’ Day she said Lula had become more than an individual, “he is an idea” that has “converted into the symbol of Brazil, of opportunities of which the people can grow.”

Dilma said the recent attacks on Lula, his character, and the Brazilian Workers Party are all part of a lawfare against the leftist agenda in the country and explained to the audience at the “The Truth Will Prevail” Buenos Aires International Book Fair that she feared for Lula’s life.

“I fear for Lula’s life. I fear for the food that he eats and the water he drinks. I fear it because they have denied him medical visitations,” she said.

She explained that his political opponents need Lula’s imprisonment because they “lack a candidate” capable of winning the upcoming presidential election and linked the move to the “parliamentary coup,” which lead to her impeachment in 2016.
