Cleia Viana/Chamber of Deputies – 08/10/2021Vote of the PEC that expands the power of Congress on the Council of the Public Ministry was postponed to this Thursday

A Chamber of Deputies failed to sew, on Wednesday, 13, an agreement for the approval of the PEC that expands the power of Congress over the Council of the public ministry on Wednesday, 13. The lack of consensus postponed the vote on the project to this Thursday, 14. On Wednesday, the president of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), was even charged by Deputy Adriana Ventura (Novo-SP) in the plenary on the inclusion of the PEC in the agenda. ” We are precisely sewing an agreement between members and associations of the Public Ministry and leaders and representatives. This text will be brought to the plenary and with it the possibility, or not, of the agreement. If there is, we will vote tomorrow at 9 am”, explained Lira. THE matter in question is the Proposal for Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) 5/21, which changes the composition of the MP’s National Council. Une of the goals is to make civil society more involved in the council.

Dand according to the preliminary opinion of the rapporteur of the PEC, deputy Paulo Magalhães (PSD-BA), the council changes from 14 to 15 members, of which 4 will be nominated or elected by the Legislative. The term remains for two years, one reappointment is allowed, and the candidate must pass a hearing in the Federal Senate. The Presidency of the council remains with the Attorney General of the Republic. THE National Association of Attorneys of the Republic has taken a stand against the proposal. Ubiratan Cazetta, president of the association, spoke with the Young pan. He claims that the text affronts the autonomy and independence of the Public Ministry. “NoIt is not acceptable to go back as one that withdraws the election of the superior council. The superior council of each of the MP’s is a body that decides on punishments, promotions and removals. It is the body that has the capacity to look at the institution from the inside”, defends Cazetta. This is because, among other attributions, this council is responsible for evaluating the conduct of prosecutors and prosecutors. ANDamong them, the project has been called “council” and even “PEC of revenge”.
