They 'mayor' be positioning themselves

Interesting news afoot in the world of would-be mayors. Simon (yes, he at the Bangladeshi wedding), supposedly failed to scotch any rumours of a potential leadership bid after the mayoral campaign in today's Independent.

Meanwhile across the Atlantic the Workers Party is to choose its candidate for mayor of Rio, ahead of October's elections. The Folha de Sao Paulo suggests Jorge Bittar may get it; but where is Benedita da Silva? She's been vice-governor of the state and was a minister in Lula's government until it was revealed she had some dodgy financial dealings last year. But despite that, she still retains some support in the party.

What do you think? Let me know.
