There is already "some political consensus" for regionalization, the parties admit

At a conference organized by JN, DN and TSF, the main political parties spoke out in favor of promoting regionalization. The SDP believes that today there is “some political consensus” in this regard, although it rejects the model of increasing public spending. The PS recalled that they are defending the referendum for 2024, but the PCP has conditions to complete the process in 2023.

Jose Luis Carneiro, Deputy Secretary General PS, defended the need for regionalization as long as it persists. “Regionalization – yes, with the consideration and consolidation of options,” he said this Wednesday in Lisbon.

The socialist stressed that his party’s “obligation” in the legislative election program is to first complete the decentralization of power.

“It is planned that the services of Deconcentrated Public Administration can now be integrated into the CCDR, and as soon as this process is consolidated, we can consolidate this path and hold a referendum in 2024,” said Jose Luis. Carneiro.

Arlindo Cunha, Director of the National Strategic Council Psd, acknowledged that the party is ready to promote regionalization, albeit with some conditions. “We think that after so many disagreements, a certain political consensus can finally be reached,” he stressed.

However, the former government minister Kavaku Silva and Duran Barroso warned that in order to win the consent of the Social Democrats, this process cannot increase public spending. “Budgetary rigor is needed,” he said.

Before moving on to a referendum, the SDP proposes to act on three levels: completing decentralization, implementing “deconcentration” measures (such as relocating some government services or providing “reliable” tax incentives to companies within the country). and, finally, promoting “structured” discussion on the map of the regions.

Regionalization “by itself” does not eliminate inequality, says BE

Katharina Martins, leader BE, said that he followed the regionalization “sufficiently”. However, he argued that one of the country’s main problems is the “economy of inequality” and that the creation of regions “in itself will not solve this issue.”

“It is impossible to fight inequality without public services,” the blockist said, recalling that from 2001 to 2014, about 6.5 thousand public services were closed in the country. He defended that regionalization should be discussed by launching a “inclusive, open and democratic” process and called for direct elections to the CCDR.

Joao Oliveira from PCP, announced the “commitment” of the communists: the party understands that it is possible to “complete the whole process at the end of 2023 with the election of the relevant bodies.”

According to the communists, the councils should be consulted on two possible map proposals: one approved in 1998 and one for the five CCDR-compliant regions. Only after that should a referendum be announced, – defended the parliamentary leader of the PKP.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



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).
