Senador Randolfe Rodrigues

senator Randolph Rodriguez (Rede-AP) said this Thursday (November 10, 2022) that the future government Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) should try to negotiate a withdrawal in Congress for speaker’s amendments.

According to the congressman, it is necessary to leave STF (Federal Supreme Court) “minimum required service”and assign a policy “Place of Politics”.

Assistant (7min34s):

As shows Poder360, Lula’s political group changed its strategy due to speaker’s amendments🇧🇷 September digital newspaper showed that in PT there was an expectation that the Supreme would overthrow the apparatus. Now Lula is focusing on leaving negotiations with the Senate Presidents, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG) and the Chamber, Arthur Lyra (PP-AL).

“We want to put things back where they belong” Randolph said🇧🇷 “The place of politics is decided by politics”, completed.

The statement was handed over to journalists at the exit from the STP. The congressman was with Jorge Messias (responsible for legal transition) in a meeting with Minister Carmen Lucia. The meeting was not on the magistrate’s official agenda.

According to Randolph, one gets the impression that “uneven” about the speaker’s amendments🇧🇷 “It’s one thing to have a speaker’s amendment of 500 million BRL, 1 billion BRL, it’s another thing to be what it has been for these 3 years, 60 billion BRL. It’s a distortion, but it’s resolved through dialogue. The government will use its opportunities and the possibility of dialogue to the fullest, especially with the Congress.”stated.

“We were, for each of the ministers appointed by the transitional team, the interlocutors of this message that a new time is coming in which institutions function, that the judiciary is fulfilling its role, that the legislature is fulfilling its role,” Randolph said.

Speaker’s amendments

The question of the speaker’s amendments is important for the new government, since the budget for 2023 under discussion provides for 19 billion reais for this mechanism. In practice, it is investment power taken from the executive and absorbed by the legislature.

There is a lawsuit in STP against the mechanism filed by Psol. The responsible minister is Rosa Weber, who presides over the Court. In November 2021 she suspended payment of these amendmentsbut later made the solution more flexible.

If the Supreme Court simply strikes down the Rapporteur’s amendments, a riot will break out in Congress and the political situation in Brasilia will deteriorate again.


Lula signaled an attempt to negotiate on Wednesday (November 9) when he had a series of meetings with representatives of the republic’s authorities.

Lulu in the morning visited Arthur Lira at the official residence of the Presidium of the Chamber. The conversation flowed. In addition to stating that there will be no problem with the processing of the PEC (proposed amendment to the Constitution), which will allow PT to overcome the spending ceiling for the payment of Auxílio Brasil of 600 reais, Lira indicated that he is ready to discuss the speaker’s amendments.

This device became known as the “Secret Budget” – the data is more difficult to track than other government spending, but there is no secrecy, as in secret documents. Allocation of these resources to work in deputy bases was Lyra’s main source of power with her peers throughout the government. Jair Bolsonaro (PL).

By finding a negotiated solution, Lira avoids the risk that the mechanism will be stopped by the Supreme Court or the new government will have enough power to restrict it. During Lula’s campaign criticized the speaker’s amendments🇧🇷 The fact that the mechanism has a bad reputation in public opinion also weighs.

Lula also made a splash with Lyra. pointed out that won’t make the government machine run against re-election the current President of the Chamber. It is unlikely that a candidate will succeed against Lyra without executive support.

PT also said, not exactly in such words, what he wants “everything is in place”🇧🇷 That is, that there is no interference of one Force into another. Earlier at a seminar in Poder360Lyra gave similar statement.

After leaving the mayor’s house, Lula went to Rodrigo Pacheco. The two were already allies during the election.

Then, went to the Federal Supreme Courtwhere he met 10 of the 11 ministers – Roberto Barroso is in Egypt after the UN climate conference.

At the STF, Lula told magistrates that he wanted less litigation and that politics was solving its own problems. The message around Lula was read as a sign about the speaker’s amendments.

The PT political group is still studying what to propose regarding this mechanism. There is no hammer blow, but the following is discussed:

  • decline the significance of the speaker’s amendments;
  • lift up values ​​of individual and bench joints;
  • set the minimum percentage that should be attributed to investments;
  • link resources for federal, state and municipal work.

It is also common to hear requests for more transparency from PT members. For example, register the recipients of the speaker’s amendments and leave the data in the format of individual amendments.

Today, through platforms such as Follow Brazil, you can at any time download an Excel table with the names of congressmen and how much each allocated in separate amendments to what. Information about the speaker’s amendments organized in this way is missing.

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).
