The former Minister of Health and current deputy for the PS, Marta Temido, chose the TVI entertainment program to give her first interview after leaving office. In an interview on the “Goucha” program, conducted by the presenter of the same name, Temido placed the connection of her name with a candidacy for Lisbon on the same plane as “the ideas that are communicated to see how people react.” . And she added, without giving a direct answer: “How do I react? Laugh”.
The former minister, however, did not stop praising the role of the mayors, saying that “it must be one of the most difficult exercises.” He also recalled that “he said”, during the pandemic, that in these circumstances “there was only one more difficult place: that of mayor”. Marta Temido considers that the role of mayor is especially challenging “because of the variety of issues and the daily pressure that I imagine there is, because there is always something in the city that needs [de ser feito]🇧🇷
The presenter Manuel Luís Goucha would continue to insist on the issue at the end of the interview, but Marta Temido again evaded the issue, without denying this ambition: “You have to have a sense of humor.”
