The January legislative elections seem far away, but in PAN the impact of reducing the parliamentary group to one MP – leader Inés Sousa Real – and the current leadership’s insistence on continuing without a second vote in the elective Congress remain relevant. Having failed to convene an extraordinary congress and with an increase in layoffs at various levels of the party, a group of critics, presenting themselves as a “collective of like-minded people”, has been organizing into “its own internal political current” since 2023. Congress on the horizon. And it even has a name: More PAN🇧🇷
The achievements that People-Animals-Natureza have made in the 2022 and now 2023 state budget are far from satisfying those who have long seen PAN drift away from its true selves. “If without an absolute majority of the PS, the compliance rate was 25%, now with an absolute majority, you can imagine how it will be,” one of the critics of the current leadership tells Obozrevatel.
And even the absence of an audience at the recent demonstrations for the Climate is a factor of discomfort in structures that complain about the drift, which, they say, “is not even about animals, but about a dog and a cat.”
