President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) will undergo tests in São Paulo this Sunday 4th to check the condition of his throat. On November 20, Lula underwent a laryngoscopy at Sírio-Libanês Hospital to remove a benign lesion in the throat called leukoplakia.
Lula had said at a press conference yesterday that the exams will be held this Saturday, but reaffirmed that the throat is “good”. Procedures considered “simple” due to medical changes, according to the advice of the incoming president, have been postponed to tomorrow.
According to the press office, Lula will go to Brasília after taking the exams. As Estadão shows, on Monday, the incoming president will hold a meeting with US security adviser Jake Sullivan. Sullivan will come to Brazil as the special envoy of American president Joe Biden from 2023 to begin negotiations for a common agenda between the two countries.
Even before his inauguration on January 1, Lula will set a date to travel to the United States and meet Biden. According to the president-elect, the Washington trip should take place on December 12 after the graduation ceremony at the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE).
