On June 25, deputy Cristina Rodrigues left the party. “Today, with an extremely tight heart, I decided to disconnect from PAN, after giving so much of myself to this party. Unfortunately, I am unable to postpone this decision any longer and I only take it because I see no other way out and because I believe that, by postponing it, I could further accentuate the existing differences and be more damaging to the party, to me and to the causes with which I continue to identify myself ”, he assured, in a note sent to Lusa.

“I started to feel more and more my silenced voice and my ability to work conditionally, which culminated in my recent removal from the Permanent Political Commission of the PAN, done against me and without notice”, assured Cristina Rodrigues, who continues to participate in parliamentary activity as a non-registered deputy.
