Former minister asks president to rule for all
General Santos Cruz, a former minister in the Government Secretariat of President Jair Bolsonaro (without a party), admits that he may be a candidate for some political office.
At this moment, as a public man, Santos Cruz guarantees that he intends to dedicate himself only to two fronts.
One is the fight against what he calls “fanaticism” that puts the country at risk.
The other, according to the general himself, is to prevent the Armed Forces being engulfed by politics and letting them be a state institution, above any government.
"You have to see that the Armed Forces are not an instrument for political party use," he said.
Even on the reservation, the former head of the Secretariat of Government remains one of the Army's most important and heard voices.
In the opinion of Santos Cruz, the president has not yet understood that he needs to govern for all and ensure the country's tranquility.
“You have to govern for the whole nation, you have to govern for everyone. Even for those who lost, you have to govern, ”he said. "This stance was not adopted."
The general also criticized Bolsonaro for his alliance with the centão, the political bloc that the president criticized and which he later joined in Congress.
For Santos Cruz, governance cannot be achieved in exchange for dismantling the fight against corruption and distributing parliamentary amendments.
