Renata Almeida (MDB) was officially named on Friday (5.aug); on Saturday, she announced her resignation via Instagram
Physiotherapist Renata Almeida (MDB) gave up this Saturday (06.Aug.2022) to compose the PT slate for the Government of Ceará as deputy of Elmano Freitas (PT) 1 day after having his name official. According to her, the reason is the attacks she had been receiving on social media after taking over the post.
“In the face of the series of attacks I have received on social media since the moment my name was announced as a pre-candidate for the government, with many fake news that hit my honor and my family hard, I decide to renounce my candidacy”, published on Instagram.
