Backstage, the party activists fear that voters associate the recent allegations against Braga, the pre-candidate Mark Rotta, and end up invalidating your application, forcing the party to support or even launch another candidate.

Understand the case

Braga was appointed one of the beneficiaries of a transfer of $ 30 million in plea bargaining Nelson Mello, former director of Institutional Relations Group Hypermarcas.
