President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva congratulated the new president of Paraguay, Santiago Peña, for his victory in the elections this Sunday (30).
The 44-year-old economist is the new president of Paraguay, after winning the single-round elections against Efraín Alegre, the left-wing coalition candidate.
The new president of Paraguay will take office on August 15, for a five-year term. Santiago belongs to the Colorado Party, which has ruled the country for over 70 years, and was elected with 42.67% of the votes.
In his Twitter account, Lula wished good luck in his mandate, and asked that both work together, for ever better relations between their countries and a united South America.
Congratulations to the elected president of Paraguay @SantiPenap for winning the elections. Good luck in his tenure. Let’s work together for ever better and stronger relations between our countries, and for a South America with more union, development and prosperity 🇵🇾🇧🇷
