Senate released the candidacy of politicians fined under the bills

The Senate approved a bill vacating the candidacy of politicians whose bills were rejected by the state administration and who were only punished with a fine. If the change is authorized by President Jair Bolsonaro, the ban will only apply in more serious cases, such as when public resources are misappropriated.

“Ultimately, the project separates the wheat from the chaff,” said Proposed Rapporteur Marcelo Castro (MDB-PI). According to him, those managers, like mayors, whose accounts were rejected only by formal acts, for example, due to the lack of a document relating to expenses, without prejudice to the state wallet, will be deprived of the right to participate for eight years.

The proposal was previously approved by the Chamber, meaning it is now subject to Bolsonaro’s approval. When the rejection of bills is related to theft, illegal enrichment or damage to the state treasury, a politician will still not be able to run for office. “We cannot sentence him to political death, because there is eight years of disqualification, we all know how hard life is for politicians simply because a formal mistake was made,” said Marcelo Castro.

Currently, the Clean Records Act establishes the disqualification of politicians for those whose accounts have been rejected for irreparable irregularities that constitute a deliberate act of administrative wrongfulness and a non-appealable decision. The bill, approved by the congressmen, clarifies that this penalty does not apply to those whose “accounts were found to be incorrect, without imputation of debt, and to whom the sanctions were applied solely with the payment of a fine.”

While this change only protected politicians, who were subject to more lenient sanctions from audit courts and legislatures, the bill was criticized for changing the Clean Records Law, which was approved by the public.

One of the conditions criticized was the possibility of amendments to the law that would release the candidatures of those who are not responsible. Senators rejected an amendment that sought to clarify this. “We need to find a way out that can protect good-hearted politicians, but that leaves no support for unscrupulous people to take advantage of these loopholes,” said Senator Soraya Tronica (PSL-MS).

PR Course in Selective Justice Encourages Equal Participation in Politics

Curso da Justiça Eleitoral do PR estimula participação igualitária na política

The Women in Politics Commission and the Parana District Electoral Court Judicial School (TRE-PR) are promoting the online training course Women in Politics: Forming Candidates in 2022. From October 5 to October 28, classes will be offered to all comers with round-the-clock certification for those who gain at least 75% of the attendance. The limited course is free. Applications are accepted until September 30.

Make registration

Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19:00 to 22:15 and 23.10 (Saturday) from 8:30 to 10:30, replacing 10.12 (Tuesday), the national holiday. The aim is to raise awareness of the importance of equal participation in politics by providing nominating tools that promote greater equality, fairness and democracy.

Diversity

Flavia da Costa Viana, Chief Justice and Executive Director of the TRE-PR School, said this edition of the course will reflect on the importance of diversity in political debate. “Attention will be paid not only to the need for greater participation of women in public life, but also to other minority groups.”

The judge emphasizes that it is never superfluous to recall the words of Minister Barroso in his inaugural speech to the High Electoral Court (TSE): “The involvement of idealistic and competent women in politics is an important requirement of the country. Women make up half of the population. And black, brown or indigenous people make up half of the women. We need to increase diversity in Brazilian public life. We are a multinational, multiracial, multicultural country. We must realize that this is an asset, a dignity, a privilege that history has given us. “

According to Judge of the 174th Electoral Zone of Curitiba (PR) and President of the Women in Politics Commission, Adriana de Lourdes Simette, “The idea is to convey relevant information about the electoral and electoral process so that when elections approach, women and people involved in politics, regardless of party and ideological nuances, can be better prepared to participate in the next elections. “

The following topics are discussed during the course: legal aspects of women’s participation; political parties; budget and campaign funding; accountability; Communication; ballot box security and verification of electronic voting; registration of the application; democracy; diversity; social networks and civil language.

This is the second edition of a series of lectures that first took place in October 2019. The initiative is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. In particular, it responds to the goals set in Goal 5, which aims to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.

The political scientist believes that the highlight of the electoral reform is the veto of the coalitions

Political scientist Rafael Cortez believes that the main highlight of the electoral reform is the veto of party coalitions in the elections of deputies and councilors.

“The main reason for the noticeable influence of this veto is that proportional coalitions fictitiously used voter representation, since the number of electoral coalitions was not maintained throughout the entire legislative process, but varied only to count votes and increase the number of seats of a particular party,” Cortez explained. CNN

The political scientist argues that voters had no control over where their vote went. “In the end I voted for candidate A and helped choose the name of party B, which clearly contradicted the will of the voter.”

The Senate approved this Wednesday (22) in two rounds a Proposed Constitutional Amendment (PEC) electoral reform and canceled the return of coalitions. The proposal gives more weight to votes for women and blacks while dividing party resources.

Since the Senate suppressed only those parts that did not reach consensus, such as the return of party unions, there is no need for PECs to return to the Chamber of Deputies. The text is now due to be made public by the President of Congress, Senator Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM-MG), by October 2. If this does not happen by that date, the rules will not apply to next year’s elections.

According to Cortez, the political system in Brazil is very complex from the point of view of the electorate. “It is very difficult to trace where this vote is going, because, in fact, as soon as we vote for a candidate, we vote for a party without knowing it. For example, it is unlikely that a deputy is elected only by the personal votes that he receives. The vote of the elected deputy is the sum of the individual votes with the votes cast by the people in the party legend. “

Election Court Cancels Mandates of Mayor and Deputy Campo Magro for Abuse of Political and Economic Power | Parana

Election Court Cancels Mandates of Mayor and Deputy Campo Magro for Abuse of Political and Economic Power |  Parana

The electoral court has revoked the mandates of the mayor of Campo Magro in the Curitiba metropolitan area, Claudio Cesar Casagrande (PSD) and Deputy Mayor Osmar Leonardi (PSC) for abuse of political and economic power.

The decision from Monday (20) said the city increased its municipal administration’s advertising spending by more than 4,000% in 2019 compared to the previous two years.

The two, however, remain in office until appeals are heard.

The defense of Casagrande and Osmar Leonardi said they disagree with the findings of the verdict.

“There was important evidence and arguments that were not taken into account. The representatives are confident that the conviction will be overturned by filing an appeal with the Paraná District Electoral Court, ”they said in a note.

According to the ruling, about R $ 170,000 was spent on advertising in the last week of 2019, and materials were used up during 2020, the year that the mayor and vice president were running for re-election.

“The abuse of political and economic power must be recognized and the seriousness must be marked by the mismatch in income and expenditure between candidates and the expectation that campaign advertising will translate into institutional advertising, which has given the re-elected candidate a significant advantage through personal advancement in the use of public resources.” – the resolution says.

The electoral court also ruled that the mayor of Casagrande was barred from being elected for eight years after the 2020 elections.
