Workers Party Begs Brazilians’ Pardon and Vows to Come Clean

    Brazil’s Workers Party’s (PT) National Executive Committee issued a request asking the nation’s forgiveness. According to the message, “for the first time the party is asking for the country’s pardon.”

    The announcement goes on explained that forgiveness is being asked “for acts practiced by leaders of the party without the knowledge of other party members, acts that in the eyes of the Brazilian nation, were morally and politically condemnable.”


    In its note, the PT also asserts that, when all those who acted irregularly admit responsibility for what they did, as is the case of the ex-treasurer of the party, Delúbio Soares, their names will be announced publicly.


    The Executive Committee also said that these acts were shameful for the PT and the government.


    “We are getting our act back together, reorganizing our administrative structures and attempting to deal with the political crisis to defend the continuation of the government under President Lula’s leadership,” the note informs. “It is impossible to evaluate the depth and the seriousness of the damages.”


    The note goes on to express confidence in President Lula’s mandate, as well as calling for the need to respect the party’s internal differences of opinion to a greater extent and doing away with the informal relationships that exist between the government and the party.


    Relations between the party and the administration which, according to the note, are not transparent and “only serve to benefit the manipulation of party circles by leaders who enjoy greater access to power.”


    The PT’s Executive Committee suggests that all municipal party groups hold debates and shows of force in favor of the PT and Lula’s Administration on August 27.

      !!!!!
      …did the PT party gave their pardon when one of your ex president…HAD to resign…because of corruption ?????
      Did all the leaders od the PT party involved…recognized their “errors” when they were first questioned.
      NO they denied everything…until they could no longer deny…proofs and evidence !!!

      No criminal in the world will recognize his murder……until evidences are given. Even then they pretend they did not kill…the guy they killed !

      All corruptors, corrupted, tax cheaters, money launderers , hidden alliances, act on the same basis !

      A democracy has democratic laws…..to be applied to every citizen.

      Was it not Lula that said he his willing to cut in their own flesh….and everyone involved should be punished ?????

      NOW is the time to take him by his own words.
      NOW is the time that he cuts into his own flesh….not only into others fleshs !!!!

      He should not only resign …but also go into exile !!!

      He lied through all his life to the public…doing other things behind closed doors!!!!

      Dont tell me he was not aware opf all what happened for years !!!! He was a leader of the PT party…!!!

      Being unable to proof it does not mean he was not aware. His lieutenants just cover the general. All gangs are organized the same !!!
