During the meetings, the political figures will address the need to dismantle the far-right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro's administration, according to the Workers' Party (PT) leader.
"They will not be electoral debates, but political discussions. Lula is trying to join forces to confront Bolsonaro's mismanagement of the pandemic," leftist Senator Humberto Costa explained.
The leaders will seek to put pressure on the government to increase to US$110 the emergency aid it gives to workers and their families. Currently, workers receive a US$45 aid.
