STF awaits dialogue with Planalto led by Lula who scales emissaries



STF awaits dialogue with Planalto led by Lula who scales emissaries

O STF (Supreme Federal Court) hopes that the first year of the future administration of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) will be marked by fewer attacks from the executive branch on the judiciary and, above all, more active dialogue between Planalto and the court, two points that have influenced relationship with the President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) for the last four years.

On the other hand, Lula’s interlocutors believe that the PT will seek to maintain an institutional dialogue with the Supreme Court – and, they hope, more restraint on the part of the court in dealing with political issues.

Interlocation. PT has taken steps to strengthen the bridges for the coming months.

Except meeting with ministers this weekLula appointed Senator Randolph Rodriguez (Rede-AP), Senator-elect Flavio Dino (PSB-MA), and Treasury Attorney Jorge Rodrigo Messias, also known as “Bessias”, to serve as messengers in courtroom conversations.

Yesterday (10) Randolph met with Minister Carmen Lucia within the session interval.

“We have to put things in their place,” the senator said. “We want to get everything back to normal. Leave the Supreme Court with the bare minimum of services and give politics a place for politics.”

PEC. In recent days, the group has reached out to ministers of the courts to discuss topics related to the transition – the main one, the PEC (Proposal to Amend the Constitution), which seeks to make room in the state treasury for campaign promises.

The need for dialogue includes not only government directives that can be challenged in court, but also the opportunity to make two directives that PT will present to the STF during 2023.

The meeting was the first step. Lula’s meeting with Supreme Court ministers on Wednesday (9) was seen as the first step to building a dialogue with the court.

According to allies and people who followed the conversation, the PT avoided mentioning sensitive issues such as the secret budget and the timing of the delimitation of indigenous lands. Instead, Lula chose to talk about general issues such as health, education, and the environment.

During a meeting with ministers, Lula praised the decisions made by the Supreme Court during the pandemic and assured that he would give the court a technical name with a “good curriculum”.

According to the person who followed the conversation, Lula did not ask the ministers for anything, preferring a nod to the dialogue before taking office. The atmosphere of the meeting was recognized as positive and organizational.

Minister Diaz Toffoli, the only one who commented on the meeting, albeit briefly, described the conversation as “very peaceful”.

Ministry of Justice. Inside the Supreme Court, it is believed that another bridge of dialogue with the court should come from the name chosen to occupy the Department of Justice, which has authority over the Federal Police, and therefore it would be natural to speak with the Supreme.

One of the names mentioned is that of the elected Senator Flavio Dino (PSB-MA), who is doing well in the Supreme Court and the high courts of Brasilia.

Dino was part of PT’s entourage during visits to the STF and TSE ministers this week and has had conversations with members of the high courts in recent days.

past waters. According to Lula’s interlocutors, with whom he consulted UOLPT hopes to maintain a “period of independence and harmony” with the judiciary at the start of its term.

It should be recalled that PT has always maintained a position of respect for the STF, even during the discovery and trial of Mensalão or even in the Lava Jato cases.

“There is no place for vengeful behavior here. He is looking ahead,” he told reporters. UOL a person close to the president-elect.

On the other hand, the future government expects the Supreme Court to be more restrained when discussing actions involving political issues. Allies also say Lula will try to speak to all members of the court, including Bolsonaro’s appointees, when necessary.

Observe and then decide. According to Wallace Corbo, professor of law at the FGV (Fundação Getúlio Vargas) Rio and specialist in constitutional law, the Supreme Court tends in the first year of a new government to take a position of watching the political game before making a decision.

“Even in the first year of Bolsonaro’s rule, despite the friction that came from the government, the Supreme and his presidents at various times tried to reduce tensions and seek some kind of compromise with the government that would not generate friction and instability,” he explained.

According to Corbo, the history of relations between Lula’s government and the Supreme Court was “republican” during the first two terms of the PT. However, the new composition and role of the court in the political game will require the president-elect to take a different view of the STP.

“You need to think of the Supreme Court as this strategic agent of the government, where issues that the government might have difficulty moving forward in the Legislative Assembly can end up being brought before the Federal Supreme Court,” Corbeau said.

Since Lula’s departure from the presidency, the Supreme Court has taken on an increasingly important role in political, economic, and social matters.

The presidency of Rosa Weber, according to Corbeau, can contribute to this dialogue. The reticent minister has avoided bringing controversial topics to court since taking office in September.

“The trend is for the Supreme Court to be more restrained. The Supreme Court, whose agenda is designed to ensure democratic normality, and this helps not in the sense of reducing the leading role, but in the sense of removing the Supreme Court from the center of the controversy. “, he points out.

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).
