Proposals to reduce STP contamination by policy - 30.07.2022 - Opinion

The transformations that have taken place in society and the problems associated with democratic coexistence are reflected in the ongoing resistance tests of a model of separation of powers based on increasingly ominous assumptions of independence and harmony between public spheres.

The biggest crisis appears to be the legitimacy of all institutions, public and private, exacerbated by the “leveling” of information and disinformation networks, leading the process of shaping public opinion along dangerous paths of simplification, emotion, and exclusion of the other.

The STP, as it could not be otherwise, is involved in this turmoil, partly voluntarily, and as a result has questioned its legitimacy to act as a moderator/adviser of the political game and of the society itself, when the independence of its members and the technical criteria for decisions are called into question. , excluding any decision which is exempt from the legal force of the decisions of the members of the court.

Growing pressure to introduce ideological criteria in the appointment of its members, a phenomenon also seen in the selection of candidates for the US Supreme Court, fuels these suspicions, and discussions about the best standards for selection are again emerging. ministers.

I have already advocated in an article published in Folha that making the selection process more transparentwith a longer exposure time to candidates is the recommended route, requiring no major changes to the current model, but ensuring greater public participation and legitimacy of the process.

Today, such a solution no longer seems sufficient, although still necessary, given the risks of co-optation between powers and excessive polarization.

How to reduce the “contamination” of the court with day-to-day politics, or at least avoid repeated claims that ministers are tied to their respective “patrons”, is a big question with no clear answer.

Transforming the STF into a constitutional court and establishing mandates for its members along the lines of European constitutional courts, reducing the scope for monocratic decisions, or even defining its transfer from Brazil to another location, as in Germany, are relevant proposals, but they are difficult to implement. before our institutional model
historically common.

It is shown that the “free and immediate transition” of government members directly from political activity in the executive and legislative branches to jurisdictional functions is one of the factors of the greatest distrust of the independence of magistrates.

Quarantining those who leave the executive or legislature, so that only after the end of integrated administration they can act in the judiciary, can be a way of assessing, avoiding restrictions on the candidates themselves, equating restrictions to others. already available for similar sensitive functions.

I recall here the condition of the audit courts responsible, as assistants to the Legislative Assembly, for accounting, financial and budgetary audit of all public entities and for the very use of public money, the technical validity of whose decisions are questioned due to political criteria. prevails in the appointment of its members.

It is better to follow the already begun path of improving the Accounts Chamber; we should not
reproduce your problems in STF.

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!!

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).
