Doria announced that he has withdrawn from his pre-candidacy because he understands that it is not his party’s choice for the position.

By giving up his candidacy for the presidency of the republic, João Doria (PSDB) adds another remarkable episode to his short but hectic political trajectory.

After being elected mayor of São Paulo (SP) in 2016, the toucan ran for and won the election for the state government of São Paulo two years later. In recent years, he began to prepare his next flight to Brasília, where he wanted to assume the presidency of the country. However, the man who started his career insisting that he was a manager and not a politician got into an internal partisan dispute that eventually interrupted his plans.

This Monday (23/5) Doria announced that he was withdrawing from his pre-candidacy because he understands that it is not his party’s choice for the position, as he said in a statement: “Serenely, I understand that I am not the choice of the top of the PSDB. I accept this reality with my head held high.”

The ex-governor and ex-mayor of São Paulo won the primaries as a candidate for president of the toucans, but names and internal wings of the acronym little by little undermined his project — in part because of numbers that indicated a low chance of victory. in part due to an articulation between PSDB, MDB and Citizenship that could make the name of Senator Simone Tebet (MDB) a candidate.
