The weekend before the centenary of the Chinese PC, next Thursday (1st), one of the main opinion vectors of the country, Guancha, from Shanghai, published a long interview with Lula.
The call was kept at the top of the homepage, just below a headline with Xi Jinping, highlighting a statement by the former Brazilian president: “Why can China do what it says?” Because it has a strong political party ”:
“For example,” Lula said in the interview, “China is able to fight the coronavirus so quickly because it has a strong political party and a strong government. Because the government has the power of control and command Brazil doesn’t have that, nor does it in other countries. “
In the interview, he questions the action of the US Department of Justice in Operation Lava Jato, welcomes the return of the left to Latin America, but avoids talking about elections, claiming that the priority of the PT this year is to guarantee vaccination in the country.
Bloomberg and others were dispatched just before he “beat Bolsonaro in the first round, poll finds.”
Guancha, in Chinese, is the work of technology investor Eric X. Li, who is linked to Stanford and Fudan. One of Fudan’s teachers, Li Shimo, was the interviewer and began by saying that Lula “is very famous in China”.
