Romario belongs to the PSB, Marina Silva’s party. Before October 5, Silva was believed to be the main rival to President Rousseff’s re-election. According to the Brazilian news agency UOL.com, Romario tied his electoral campaign with the PSB brand and Marina Silva’s image when she was improving her position in the polls. Since Silva appears to be leaning towards supporting Neves in the run-off, it will be interesting to see if Romario follows his party’s decision, remains neutral, or if he ultimately supports the current president.
