Ana Catarina Mendez criticizes Cavaco's bitterness - Politics

The Deputy Minister for Parliamentary Affairs believes that the former President of the Republic, Cavaco Silva, shows “sour and indignation” towards the country and defends that the attack on voluntary termination of pregnancy affects civilizational values.

These positions were laid out by Anna Catarina Mendez in an interview published this Sunday by Jornal de Notícias and TSF.

Asked about an article published this week in the Observer by former President of the Republic Cavaco Silva, in which she criticizes socialist governments led by António Costa, Ana Catarina Méndez begins by mentioning that she joined the PS “because she has was the critical opinion of politics” of the then Social Democratic Prime Minister. “The former president of the republic always speaks with a sense of bitterness and resentment towards the country. I have high hopes for the country that we have,” he counters.

Ana Catarina Mendes also criticizes the former head of state for not saying in this article what she wants for the country.

“It is limited to the fact that everything is wrong. And, therefore, there is some anger at the absolute majority” PS, he argues.

On a political level, Ana Catarina Méndez denies that her parliamentary portfolio is now empty because the Assembly of the Republic has an absolute PS majority.

“This is not an empty portfolio, firstly, because, on top of that, in the vast majority, Parliament is important and central in the oversight it exercises over the government. I have never been afraid of losing political weight, because I don’t even know very well what it is,” it says.

Ana Catarina Méndez also notes that, as deputy minister, she oversees two state secretariats “with very different areas, all of which are very important, whether in the field of sports and youth or in the field of migration and equality.”

Asked about the failed process of co-opting Almeida and Costa to the Constitutional Court, after learning that this university professor had written anti-abortion articles in the past, the minister believes that “all attacks on this achievement” of voluntary termination of pregnancy “are attacks on society and civilizational values”.

“I think this should be put on the level of human rights, on the level of our fundamental values ​​that the Constitution preserves,” he replies.

As for the conclusions of the investigation of the General Inspectorate of Finance or the National Commission for Data Protection in the case of assistance to Ukrainian refugees in Setúbal, the minister said only that these conclusions “will come soon.”

“I will be the first to say what the next steps will be based on the findings of the investigation,” she promises.

Faced with the existence of situations of ill-treatment of Ukrainian refugees, namely in labor matters, the minister understands that the Labor Conditions Administration (ACT) “very actively checked working conditions”.

“The ACT did not inform us of any violation of working conditions. We are paying more and more attention to this because we are now responding to an emergency. But we cannot forget that Portugal has received many people over the years, be it immigrants. or refugees. And therefore, labor exploitation is also a violation of human rights,” he notes.

Barbudo defends CPI Petrobras and refutes the political point of view argument: when it was CPI Covid, nobody cared, right?  :: News MT
Federal MP Nelson Barbudo (PL) said the issue of protecting the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPI) to investigate the actions of Petrobras has been appeased within the PL, the party of President Jair Bolsonaro. According to him, the group wants transparency and does not have a political view: “When it came to the opening of the CPI on Covid, no one was worried, right? If there were pre-election elections, if there weren’t any, the Senate, in my opinion, to the detriment of Bolsonaro’s election campaign, opened [a CPI]”.

The secretary says the creation of the consumer price index is a “political decision” but points out that the pricing of Petrobras must change.

As for Barbudo, Petrobras needs to explain the successive increases and explain why it is not using its “social purpose”. He even stated that he even considers the adjustments “a diversion that is carried out before the presidential campaign.”

“Is it not possible to increase oil by 14%? The dollar did not rise in price by 14%, the barrel of oil did not rise in price by 14%, so why did it rise in price by 14%? In 1.4%, 14%. We did everything with the leaders to remove ICMS, which is 24% in some places, the other day Petrobras gives a 14% increase, I mean … Petrobras also has to analyze the social function, this is what I hit hard,” he defended.

MP Bolsonaro also said that Bolsonaro’s point of view has not changed, he first said that high prices are due to taxes, and now he is turning to Petrobras. Barbudo said the government has held a task force and is trying to act on all fronts.

“The government had a task force to remove ICMS from the states and replace it in the hope that the price would drop at the gas station. So Petrobras comes in and doesn’t cooperate? We will work on Petrobras and see what happens, because we need people to have a working position, regardless of the election period. Now Petrobras is growing by 14% every 30 days… in 90 days Brazil is not viable,” he lamented.

In yet another attempt, the MP said he would submit a proposal to the President to submit a PEC or LP for Petrobras to pay the fuel freight with a portion of the profits made in the first two quarters of 2022. Thus, according to him, all municipalities will receive fuel at the same price.

“Let’s take this idea from the president to see if the board accepts… [] another way to try download. What we are trying to do is to provide working conditions for the Brazilian people, especially for agriculture in Mato Grosso, tractors, big machines, agriculture. [usam gasolina e] Soon it will be unbearable. We, representing our people, must take action, whether it is with the CPI, with the PEC, with the PL, no matter what happens, we need to lower the price of oil,” he concluded.

For Damaso, politicians must act transparently and honestly in order to earn the respect of the population.

“I want to be a politician only as long as I have the respect of the population, and there is only one way to earn respect: to do serious work, transparently and honestly.” The statement was made by pre-gubernatorial candidate Osires Damaso (PSC) in a press interview in Araguaín during his last visit to the city, this Friday 24. In addition to meeting with communication specialists, he met with the authorities and political leaders of the municipality to strengthen his name in a dispute for state government.

Asked about his motives for running for president, Damaso talked about his experiences as a three-term state deputy, Legislative Assembly president, as a businessman, and the beginnings of his personal journey. “And this experience allowed me to get acquainted with the resources that reach the state, their potential and the real needs of the inhabitants of Tocantins,” he explained.

“We need a government that truly runs an administration focused on economic development, growth and the quality of life of our people. We need industrialized, modern and respected Tocantinas. I am sure that with my experience I will have excellent management, giving people real opportunities,” Damaso said.

The pre-nominee also advocates a partnership between state government and municipalities to develop public policies that primarily benefit those living in situations of social vulnerability. “I want to implement the program in partnership with city halls, municipal councils and leaders so that we can deliver basic food packages to the population, restoring the mood of many families. But, in addition, we need a state program so that these people can enter the labor market,” he stressed.
