The current governor of São Paulo, Rodrigo Garcia (PSDB) and the elected governor, Tarcísio de Freitas (Republicans), hold the first transition meeting this Thursday, 17th, starting at 3 pm, at Palácio dos Bandeirantes. The meeting takes place 18 days after the victory of the former minister, who took a vacation after the result of the election and spent a few days with his family in the United States. He was also in Brasília, where he visited his family and resolved private matters – such as moving to São Paulo. Governor Rodrigo Garcia was on a trip to New York, in the United States, but has already returned to Brazil. Guilherme Afif, coordinator of the transition chosen by Tarcísio, and Marcos Penido, Garcia's government secretary who manages the handover, also participate in the conversation. This is São Paulo's first government transition in 28 years. The PSDB has been in charge of the State uninterruptedly since 1995. Last week, Garcia had already announced that one of the discussions this Thursday will be the project being discussed at Alesp that grants a 50% increase in the salaries of the next governor, the deputy and other government secretaries. Recent issues, such as the advance of Covid-19 cases in the State, should also be on the agenda. This Wednesday, Tarcísio and Afif held a transition internal alignment meeting at the WTC Complex, in the south zone of São Paulo, where the team's meetings will be held until the inauguration, on January 1st. It was there, too, that Tarcísio accompanied the counting of votes and celebrated the victory on October 30.
