Election 2022: Electoral Trouble: Bolsonaro and Lira Seek Against CPI Government
In the federal government of Zaire Balsonaro, even the unimaginable occurs. Yesterday, for instance, he introduced that he had agreed to type a fee of inquiry in opposition to Deputy Arthur Lira, president of the chamber, the federal government.
He instructed Radio 96 FM from Paraiba: “I spoke to Arthur Lira. He is presently assembly with get together leaders, and our thought is to suggest a CPI to research Petrobras president, its director and the executive and monetary council.
The majority shareholder, the federal government is solely accountable, by regulation and certainly, for the appointment of the overwhelming majority of administrators and administrators of the corporate.
“We need to know if there may be something incorrect with their conduct,” he argued, referring to the corporate’s administration, which, after years of losses, started distributing income to shareholders, primarily to the federal government, which is the regulator.
In different phrases, Bolsonaro and Lira need to know what’s “incorrect” with the truth that Petrobras has elevated the switch of presidency income by nearly 1,000%.
In 2020, he despatched R $ 2.5 billion in dividends to the federal treasury. Last yr it distributed R $ 27.1 billion. And, this primary semester, it forecasts one other 31 billion.
Bolsonaro thinks it’s “irrational”, “unthinkable”, “one thing nobody understands, silly”, an oil firm benefiting from a file rise in oil and gas costs on the world market.
It is kind of uncommon for shareholders to complain in regards to the extreme income of their firm.
More not often, maybe, a Republican president, campaigning for re-election, has agreed with the CPI (M) in opposition to his personal authorities, alongside together with his allies within the Chamber of Deputies.
One hundred days earlier than all this election, and with the candidate Bolsonaro fearful about second place and an important distance (common of 20 proportion factors) from the chief within the election, the opponent Lula. An important thought, little doubt.
Enthusiastic in regards to the authorities’s chaos, the opposition additionally forgot to thank them and went straight to the pageant. “I perceive the CPI,” celebrated Senate Opposition Leader Randolph Rodriguez (Red-AP), who’s a part of the Lullaby marketing campaign. And he has already outlined a roadmap: “Investigate Petrobras, which is a part of the federal government; Then examine the president of Petrobras, whom Bolsonaro himself appointed. And let’s go north: Bolsonaro is accountable! ”
At residence, on non secular holidays, Deputy Lira gave particulars of the measures she had already taken to Globonews.
“I known as Jay Mauro [Coelho, presidente da Petrobras] Yesterday [quinta, 16]“- I instructed him to not elevate it, [e disse]: ‘You’re working in opposition to it, one thing else will be anticipated from Petrobras’.
He continued: “I mentioned I used to be going to do one thing to get him fired [que já havia sido demitido no dia 24 de maio por Bolsonaro]. And that I’m going to suggest to the federal government to impose a tax on the income of Petrobras. She [respondeu]: ‘Not fairly, the recommendation is [de administração]I’m not delaying my departure. ‘
This is one other political rarity. In reality, the mayor acknowledged the separation of powers and transcend the boundaries of autonomy offered for within the structure.
Lira has immediately intervened – underneath the state-owned Companies Act, unnecessarily – to trample on the assure of administrative independence of the mixed-capital firm, the biggest within the nation, with greater than 700,000 particular person shareholders and shares on the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange and from New York.
He echoed Bolsonaro’s sharpness, confirming the electoral ache. Re-election candidate Petrobras has introduced a brand new gas adjustment, the fourth of this yr, 99 days after the value was set, known as “betrayal.”
The president of the chamber considers the “acts of unhealthy religion” dedicated by individuals appointed by the federal government to be “irrational” who would “idiot” the federal government. He added on social media: “[O aumento de preços] It’s an act of company terrorism. “
He addressed the corporate’s president, dismissing him 40 days after he was elected with Bolsonaro’s approval: “Get out of right here, get out now! This place just isn’t yours. “
Lira and Bolsonaro didn’t point out the vacation spot of R $ 60.6 billion revenue transferred by the corporate within the final 30 months.
They additionally mentioned nothing in regards to the taxes he paid final yr – greater than R 200 billion to the federal, state and municipal governments.
They are summary from the truth that they’ve rejected a subsidy fund to scale back the value of gas. For ten months, between April 2021 and final February, they refused to assist this type of Senate initiative to mitigate the consequences of rising oil costs on customers’ pockets.
If senators determine to vote, the federal government will name off the value stabilization fund resolution to make power cheaper.
It was Wednesday night time, February twenty third. Russia invaded Ukraine two hours after the tip of the session. Oil costs have risen.
Lira and Balsonaro need to win the October election. It is legitimate. However, they began a conflict in opposition to Petrobras, a union property, in a private, electoral curiosity.
If it causes hurt to the corporate and society, they threat being held accountable personally and patriotically.
