“A man of singular intelligence and unparalleled kindness, Padilha joined the MDB in 1966 when many sought the shadow of a military regime that was deteriorating. For me, more than a co-religionist and a friend, he was a professor when I lived with him on the 4th floor of the Planalto Palace at the choice of President Temer during some difficult moments in the history of our Republic. Thank you, Elisha Padilla. Goodbye, Elisha Padilla. The man left, Saudad and Orakin remained.” Maroon said in the post.

Padilha was my companion in all my struggles, was always by my side and held several important positions in the Republic. he was Minister of Transport in the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, President of the Ulises Guimarez Foundation and Minister of the Civil House in my government. when he brilliantly coordinated the ministries. As a seasoned MP, he knew Congress like no one else, and in recognition of this knowledge, he became a constant source of press. Padilha was a man dedicated to our country. It will be missed.”
