Actress Rita Salema is the nominee for the nominee of the Alliance party in the European elections scheduled for May 26. The choice, announced this Thursday, is based on a commitment by the party of Pedro Santana Lopes to bring new faces and "evidence given" to politics.
"We have come to do something different and therefore we also give a signal that we value Culture and civic intervention of all citizens, whatever the profession or the sector from which they come," explains in a statement, the head of Alliance list to Europeans, Paulo Sande, saying he was "honored" with the presence of the 52-year-old actress in the campaign.
Rita Salema has excelled in several areas such as theater, television and teaching. The actress says she believes in new projects "that can make a difference and change what needs to be changed."
"There are times when we need to be protagonists and put our strength, capacity, knowledge, availability to serve the causes and teams we believe. Paulo Sande and the Alliance's entire list for Europeans show that it is possible to bring new, competent and proven people to politics, "says Rita Salema.
