Pacheco highlights the 'seriousness' of the Lojas Americanas case and asks for rigor in the investigations

For the PP, PL, Republicans and Novo parliamentarians, who were isolated, the constitutional criterion of proportionality was not followed in the choice of presidencies

WILTON JUNIOR/ESTADÃO CONTENTPresident of the Federal Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco, did not grant the presidency of any commission to the opposition parties, which were against his reappointment to the post in early February

The opposition senators, who are part of the “Vanguarda” block (PP, PL, Republicans and New), should meet this Tuesday, the 14th, to discuss what are the next steps regarding the installation of the commissions in federal Senate last week, without any of them having received command from either. The possibility of judicialization of the matter, leading to the decision of the Supremo Tribunal Federal, should be discussed at the meeting, since the internal regulations of the Senate ratifies the constitutional rule that the criterion of proportionality must be in force when choosing the command of the committees of the House. In all, the Upper House has 14 committees and, currently, only the Joint Budget Committee is without command. The opposition is still thinking about installing new commissions, so that they can be accommodated, which demands dialogue with the President of the House, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), and with the board of directors. The bloc believes that commissions such as “Education, Culture and Sport”, which encompasses three different themes, could be dismembered, as is the case in the Chamber of Deputies, without impact on the budget issue. Some opposition senators already speak openly that they are not interested in assuming vice-presidency of commissions, since the post only guarantees some visibility to the parliamentarian in case the president is absent from the session.
