PSDB, DEM and MDB criticize Bolsonara for impeachment of Moraes

PSDB presidents, Bruno Araujo, DEM, ACM Neto and MDB, Baleia Rossi, released a memo today criticizing the request to impeach STF (Supreme Federal Court) Minister Alexandre de Moraes. The removal of the judge was requested by President Jair Bolsonaro himself (no party) last Friday (20).

In a document entitled “Democracy is the only way to go,” the parties say the request is unjustified and political.

It is regrettable that during such a severe socio-economic crisis, Brazil still faces political instability and the specter of authoritarianism. This moment requires sensitivity, commitment and understanding between political leaders, institutions and powers. “
Note from PSDB, DEM and MDB

In addition, the parties also called for dialogue to find solutions to the economic, medical and social crises that the country is experiencing. “And for this it is important that institutions are able to carry out their functions with complete freedom and impartiality.”

Earlier, left-wing parties also joined him to question Bolsonaro’s position through a note.

See full note:

Democracy is the only path to be followed

We reaffirm our commitment to democracy, independence and harmony among the Powers and our full respect for the Federal Constitution.

In light of recent events, we express our solidarity with Minister Alexandre de Moraes, who has been the subject of an unfounded impeachment request – clearly of a political nature – from President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro.

It is regrettable that during such a severe socio-economic crisis, Brazil still faces political instability and the specter of authoritarianism. This moment requires sensitivity, commitment and understanding between political leaders, institutions and powers.

The coronavirus pandemic has triggered disturbing reflections in the country’s daily life, where uncertainty generated by the federal government is driving unemployment, high inflation and hunger.

We believe that only dialogue can guide this path in the search for solutions to the economic, health and social crises that the country is suffering from. And for this it is very important that institutions are able to carry out their functions with complete freedom and impartiality.

This is a guarantee that the country needs to continue to strengthen its democracy and the aspirations of the nation.

ACM Neto (DEM), Baleia Rossi (MDB) and Bruno Araújo (PSDB)

Lebanon fails to elect new president for seventh time due to political impasse – Middle East Monitor

Lebanese lawmakers on Thursday failed to elect a new president for the seventh time as the country grapples with a deepening political and economic crisis, the Anadolu news agency reported.

110 MPs out of 128 MPs took part in the voting.

Michel Moawad, a candidate backed by the Lebanese Armed Forces, won 42 votes, well short of the number needed to win in the first round, while 50 MPs voted against.

Speaker Nabih Berry scheduled the next vote a week later, on 1 December.

A candidate needs two-thirds of the votes (86 MPs) in the 128-MP parliament to pass the first round, and an absolute majority is required in subsequent rounds.

LEI: Lebanon condemns new Israeli violations of naval and air forces

Former President Michel Aoun stepped down on October 31 after serving a six-year term and lawmakers failed to agree on a successor.

Since 2019, Lebanon has been experiencing a devastating economic crisis that, according to the World Bank, is one of the worst the world has seen in modern times.

The country has not had a fully functioning government since May, with Prime Minister Najib Mikati and his cabinet having limited powers in their current interim status.

talking and political animal

There is Ludwig Wittgenstein: language is not only used to describe reality, we also use it to ask for favors, to give thanks, to curse, to greet, to pray…

And it is necessary to take into account the context, the situation, the use. “It’s raining” can state the fact that it’s really raining. But suppose that the mother in the morning, when the son is getting ready for school, says to him: “It is raining”, he at the same time knows that he must take an umbrella. If in a peasant family, after a long drought, as now, the wife opens the window and says to her husband: “It is raining,” then this speaks of contentment. But if you were expecting a pleasant walk and you say, “It’s raining,” you’re in for a disappointment.
Language performs three main functions: expressive, appellative and representative. These functions are related to the relationship established between sender, receiver and objects: there is someone (the sender) who addresses someone (the receiver) to tell him something, making reality real.
