General policy debate with prime minister dwindles to less than half after two-week period - Observer

The general policy debate with the prime minister in parliament has shrunk to less than half in the current legislative session following a regiment revision that provides for the alternate presence of the head of government and line ministers.

At the current meeting, which began on 15 September, four general policy discussions with Antonio Costa took place in Parliament, to which were added four sectoral debates with ministers versus ten debates with the prime minister held every two weeks in the previous session.

According to Lusa reporting, on October 7, 2020, January 19, March 17, the Prime Minister answered the questions of the deputies in a new model of debate – two rounds instead of one and twice as long, almost three hours. and May 12, 2021

In the previous legislative session, which began only at the end of October 2019 in connection with the legislative elections and which was already taking place partly under the conditions of a state of emergency (which reduced the number of plenary sessions in the Assembly of the Republic), ten debates were held every two weeks, the round lasted only about ninety minutes.

If you return to 2018, at the last legislative session of the previous legislature (which began as usual on September 15), Antonio Costa appeared in parliament for a two-week debate, in addition to other speeches to participate in discussions such as the discussion on State Budget, State the budget of the nation or the debate on European issues, which remain in the current version of the regiment.

At the current meeting, according to the data provided to Lusa by the Secretary of State for Parliamentary Affairs, the Prime Minister responded to the MPs, in addition to four debates on general policy, in four debates on European issues (the same number as in the previous session) and in the topic of debates at the beginning of the session at the request of the Government for a Recovery and Resilience Plan.

Antonio Costa also attended, but did not speak, in three other debates in the Assembly of the Republic on the renewal of the state of emergency, in addition to the plenary sessions on voting in general (in which he opened the discussion) and the general final of the State Budget for 2021.

The prime minister will also return to parliament at the current legislative session next week for the traditional political debate ahead of the parliamentary break, a debate on the state of the nation on Wednesday.

The government’s presence in plenary meetings is increased with four debates with ministers, mandatory since the last revision of the regiment (the possibility of sectoral debates already existed, but was rarely used by the parties or the government).

The government chosen to “debut” the new parliamentary rules was Pedro Siza Vieira, Minister of State, Economy and Digital Transition on 11 December, and Augusto Santos Silva, Minister of State and Foreign Affairs, in March. April – Minister of State and Presidential Minister Mariana Vieira da Silva, and in June – Minister of Environment and Climate, João Pedro Matos Fernandez.

About a year ago, on July 23, 2020, only PS and PSD approved the new Regiment of the Assembly of the Republic, which, among many changes, ended with a two-week debate model with the Prime Minister in effect since 2008, replacing o with monthly debates with the government.

The current model provides that the debates with the Government will be held in two alternating formats: one month with the Prime Minister on general policy, and the next, on sectoral policy with the Minister of the Ministry, whether the head of government may or may not be a gift.

The end of the two-week debate earned opposition from other parties and individual MPs, and was also contested in the PS benches – they voted against 28 MPs and five abstained, which is inconsistent with the discipline of voting for the Socialists – and in the PSD, in which even with the discipline of voting by council, seven deputies voted against.

The bi-weekly debate was launched after a 2007 call by then CDS-PP leader Paulo Portas to the Socialist Prime Minister Jose Sokratis, and lasted 12 and a half years, starting January 9. , 2008 and June 3, 2020

Previously, the monthly debate model was agreed with the prime minister, who was then Antonio Guterres, during the PS period in 1996.

An open letter to a pastor-politician - Co-authors

My dear pastor, I will probably vote for you, and not for your struggle for faith, because I adhere to a different theology, because we respect our unusual beliefs, but I will vote for you, for your social cosmic vision, solidarity and beneficial influence on people who, in my opinion, are inalienable qualities of any politician, and in this we have common interests.

However, I regret that you registered as a “pastor” in the Electoral Justice for your candidacy, because I do not vote for the pastor of the church, I vote for the politics of the society and when you use the name of the profession, nothing depends on faith, it is different from those shepherds who usurp the confessional electorate, in the manner of modern colonels and their bridle oaths.

The current candidates for the pastor of the church often gain votes among their co-religionists and sometimes swearingly promise the blessings of the church and its ministers, and sometimes even call themselves candidates of God, daring to use the name of God. as if God chose him over others, because all his children and he has no formal preferences, he will only prefer those who do good.

Calling him by the name of Peter, John, James in no way detracts from him, on the contrary, his image was built as the cornerstone of the church, which welcomed and helped people of any race, religion, like a Samaritan on the way.

If you were a “political pastor” you would not run for elections because you know that the pastor is also involved in politics to build a more just society, however, since you are a “political pastor” you should refrain from using a religious nickname. aiming at the ballot box, which, by the way, is growing every day according to the Supreme Electoral Court, so as not to confuse the divine service with the ordinary electoral, and there are those who use conscience, who say that they are the mediators of God’s work in politics, but God has not given them power of attorney and does not need representatives for this, he prefers good people in politics, even if they are atheists.

Political party and Supreme play against tax cuts

Brazilian industry shook up Minister Alexandre de Moraes. This is due to the fact that a presidential decree was issued to reduce FDI by 25% for a large list of goods. The political party filed a complaint with the Supreme Court, saying it would harm the Manaus Free Trade Zone. The case fell into the hands of Alexandre de Moraes, who issued an injunction suspending the decree.

The President of the Republic and Minister Paulo Guedes then removed products from the industry that were competitors or similar, leaving only those that did not compete with the Manaus Free Trade Zone. The decrease in IPI will be 35%. The same party appealed to the STF again, Alexandre de Moraes issued another injunction and canceled the decree again.

Now the National Confederation of Industry has received the signatures of all the federations of industry in the country, except, of course, the federations of Amazonas, as well as the federations of Amapa. They argue that Moraes’ decision creates uncertainty and impedes lower consumer prices, making it difficult for the economy to recover. The party that went to the STF against the decrees is Solidarity, it’s good that we know this. Solidarity may even defend the free trade zone in Manaus, but it does not advocate lower food prices for the rest of the country.

Alexandre de Moraes takes office as President of TSE

This Tuesday, at 19:00, at the headquarters of the TSE – a wonderful palace, I will show you a photo; it’s too luxurious, too big for something that organizes elections every two years, but still… – Boloznaro, Lula and Alexandre de Moraes are going to meet. And with them Dilma and Temer, since the former presidents were already invited; I assume that Fernando Enrique Cardoso was also invited, but I don’t know if he will come. The Presidents of the House, Senate, Supreme Court and other higher courts will still be present.

All of them will pass into the possession of Alexandre de Moraes, who will replace Edson Fachin at the head of the electoral justice; Finally, Fashin leaves, and now he is just in the Supreme Court. The ceremony gives a measure of the responsibility of the new TSE President. This is one of the most important elections in the history of this country. And Moraes should know very well what history records and does not forgive. They are all busy making the verification process safer for everyone to understand. Even the Armed Forces are helping – and it must be admitted that this was at the request of the most selective justice system.

Thursday ends deadline for those wishing to vote outside their electoral residence

Speaking of this, we must remember that we must all vote. There is an age when voting becomes optional, from 16 to 18 and then from 70, but we all go to vote. And anyone who is outside their electoral residence can vote too. But you have to ask, register with the electoral court, that you will vote in transit. Deadline expires: You must be on the electoral roll by Thursday 18. When voting en route, anyone in another state votes for President only; anyone in the same state will be able to vote normally, as well as governor, deputies, and senator. But let’s follow the deadline!
