FSpeaking at a closing dinner for next Sunday’s flyovers campaign, Nuno Graciano said that “it may be that the polls were selected wrong”, because what inspired “in the street is a shamed vote”.
“People are ashamed to say that they are from Chega, but they are from Chega,” he said, at a dinner attended by the party’s president, André Ventura, and the leader of the Spanish far-right Vox, Sebastian Abascal.
Nuno Graciano recalled that these are the first local authorities in which Chega competes, across the country, and that, in this context, and given that it is a party with “only two years”, “any result is good”.
“We are going to count on what is called a shameful vote (…). We know that André Ventura moves crowds”, considered the far-right candidate for the Lisbon Chamber.
Nuno Graciano said that the campaign that ends today “was difficult” and that “the media is anti-Chega”.
“I felt that in the debates, not talking to us,” said Nuno Graciano, who regretted that these debates were focused “on housing” and not on issues such as security or urban hygiene.
“They are all connected to the system, we are anti-system, we are all for a new era,” he said.
For Graciano, after Chega’s debut in local authorities across the country, “in four years everything will be easier” for the party’s candidates, after having opened some “flags” this year.
“We are the ones who say no more socialism, we are the ones who say no more communism,” he said.
