Bolsonaro-linked CBF and Conmebol fear politicians at America’s Cup



Bolsonaro-linked CBF and Conmebol fear politicians at America's Cup

The America’s Cup, to be held in Argentina and Colombia, was only moved to Brazil at the last minute with the approval of the President of the Republic. Jair Bolsonaro… But now Conmebol and CBF fear that political polarization will affect competition. Therefore, there is an opinion that it is necessary to reduce the political temperature around the tournament.

After confirming the America’s Cup in Brazil, Conmebol President Alejandro Dominguez thanked Bolsonara. When announcing the venue for the tournament, he also reiterated his gratitude. His presence at the opening of the tournament is almost certain.

At the same time, America’s Cup began to be criticized by infectious diseases, press agencies and CPI to Covid for completing in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Even a challenge from CBF President Rogerio Caboclo was considered. In Brazil, about 2,000 people die from the virus every day.

In conclusion, the players and coach Tite of the Brazilian team expressed their dissatisfaction with the competition, although they did not explain why. This caused a negative reaction from Bolsonaro’s supporters. As a result, the athletes decided to compete.

According to the CBF and Conmebol sectors, this polarization hurts competition. Sponsors are afraid to activate their ads for fear of a bad reaction. In addition, the broadcast of a tournament on SBT may fail. Folla de S. Paulo said that the Federal Attorney’s Office is investigating the competition partner companies.

Another concern is related to possible protests, which also damage the image of competitors. This will not only affect ticket sales, because Copa America will be held without spectators.

Hence, the idea is to keep Copa America on the political side. Obviously, Bolsonaro will be well received if he decides to go to the opening of the competition in Brasilia. But this is in line with the protocol of the competition for the reception of the head of state. The goal is to prevent America’s Cup from becoming known as the president’s tournament because it irritates his opponents. At the same time, attempts were made to refute the arguments against competition.

After receiving a signal from the players that they will act, the CBF also expressed concern about the content of the manifesto they will make after the game with Paraguay. The tone of the national team coach Tite at the pre-game press conference was very cautious, avoiding questions about criticism from pocketnaristas. According to colleague Marcel Rizzo, Conmebol will not interfere with the performance of players in relation to the tournament, if they do not violate the rules of FIFA.

The ouster of CBF President Rogerio Caboclo, implicated in a sexual harassment scandal, also helps ease the pressure on the America’s Cup. He was the organizer of the competition, bridging the gap between the federal government and Conmebol.

At the last America’s Cup in Brazil in 2019, Conmebol even prevented Bolsonar from handing over the trophy to the national team. But the players called him out onto the field and he posed with the athletes after the title.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
