Entrepreneurs, artists and even bankers sign

The Manifesto for Democracy, sponsored by USP Law School, civil society organizations and representatives, received important signatures from representatives of financial institutions.

According to Monica Bergamo’s column, Newspaper, published this Monday night (25), bankers Roberto Setubal and Pedro Moreira Salles, co-chairs of the board of directors of Itaú Unibanco, and Candido Bracher, former president of the financial institution joined the manifesto. The document was also signed by Fabio Barbosa, CEO of Natura.

The manifesto defends the security and reliability of electronic voting machines. “Our elections with electronic vote counting served as an example in the world. We had several power shifts based on the results of the vote and the republican change of power.”

The text also states that “we are in a moment of great danger to democratic normality, risk to the institutions of the Republic and insinuations of disrespect for the results of the elections so hard-won by Brazilian society.”

The “Letter to Brazilians and Brazilians in Defense of a Democratic Rule of Law”, which will be presented at the college meeting on August 11, has already collected almost 3,000 signatures.

Personalities such as Chico Buarque de Hollanda, singer Arnaldo Antunes, former football player Walter Casagrande, ex-President of the Central Bank Arminio Fraga, ex-governor of Espirito Santo Paulo Hartung and ex-president of Credit Suisse Bank in Brazil José Olimpio Pereira are also included in number of signatories.

Read the full manifest:

“In August 1977, in the midst of the celebrations of the half-century anniversary of the founding of legal courses in the country, Professor Goffredo da Silva Telles the Younger, the teacher of all of us, read a letter to the Brazilians in the free territory of Largo de San Francisco, in which he condemned the illegitimacy of the then military governments and the state of emergency in which we lived. He also called for the restoration of the rule of law and the convening of a National Constituent Assembly.

The seed planted has borne fruit. Brazil overcame a military dictatorship. The National Constituent Assembly saved the legitimacy of our institutions by restoring a democratic rule of law, with respect for fundamental rights prevailing. We have the powers of the Republic, the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, all independent, autonomous and committed to respecting and enforcing the greater covenant, the Federal Constitution.

Under the guise of a federal constitution of 1988, which is about to turn 34 years old, we held free and periodic elections in which the political debate on the drafts for the country was always democratic and the final decision rested with popular sovereignty. Goffredo’s lesson is enshrined in our Constitution: “All power comes from the people who exercise it through their elected representatives or directly, in accordance with the provisions of this Constitution.”

Our elections with electronic vote counting served as an example in the world. We’ve had several power shifts based on polls and Republican power shifts. Electronic voting machines have proven to be as safe and reliable as electoral justice. Our democracy has grown and matured, but much remains to be done.

We live in a country of deep social inequality, with a lack of basic public services such as health care, education, housing and public safety. We have a long way to go in sustainable development of our economic potential. The state is inefficient in the face of numerous challenges. Demands for greater respect and equality of conditions in terms of race, gender and sexual orientation are still far from being fully satisfied.

In the coming days, in the midst of these problems, we will begin an election campaign to renew the mandates of state and federal legislatures and executives. At this point, we should have the pinnacle of democracy with a dispute between various political projects aimed at convincing the electorate of the best offer for the country in the coming years.

Instead of a civil party, we are in a moment of great danger to democratic normality, risk to the institutions of the Republic, and insinuations of disrespect for the election results. Baseless attacks, unsupported by evidence, call into question the smoothness of the electoral process and the democratic rule of law that Brazilian society has so hard won.

Threats to other forces and sectors of civil society, calls for violence and the destruction of the constitutional order are unacceptable. We have recently witnessed authoritarian rhetoric that has endangered secular American democracy. There, attempts to destabilize democracy and the people’s faith in the honesty of elections were not successful, and they will not be successful here either. Our civic conscience is much higher than the opponents of democracy imagine. We know how to set aside small disagreements in favor of something much bigger – the defense of the democratic order.

Imbued with the civic spirit at the heart of the Letter to the Brazilians of 1977 and gathered in the same free territory of Largo de São Francisco, regardless of the electoral or party preferences of each of them, we call on Brazilian women and men to remain vigilant in the defense of democracy and respect for the election results.

In today’s Brazil, there is no longer room for authoritarian failures. Dictatorship and torture are a thing of the past. Solving the huge problems facing Brazilian society necessarily involves respect for the election results. In civil vigil against attempted ruptures, we exclaim in unison:
Democratic rule of law always!”

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).
