For the CPI to be installed, the signature of at least one third of the members of the house, that is, of 27 of the 81 senators, and the consent of the president of the House, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG). The first CPI of the Pandemic, however, only started after a determination by the Minister of the Federal Supreme Court Luis Roberto Barroso, requested because of Pacheco’s delay in analyzing the application.
