Could Janja be a candidate to replace Lula?



Could Janja be a candidate to replace Lula?

With victory Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) in the presidential election, their family members will not be able to run for political office in the next election. That is, Janja, to whom he is married, cannot be his successor as president or seek a position in the legislative or executive branch.

According to the Brazilian Constitution, family members cannot run for positions other than those they have already held.

Article 14 of the Magna Carta forbids the nomination of relatives up to the second degree by blood or by adoption of the president, governors and mayors.

The ban is intended to avoid a possible advantage for candidates associated with politicians holding the majority of positions.

Lula lived in a similar situation

This jurisprudence is based on the decision given to the son of Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT). In 2008, the candidacy of Marcos Claudio Lula da Silva (Portugal) for the post of councilor in São Bernardo do Campo (SP) was rejected by the electoral chamber.

The argument in favor of the PT’s candidacy was that a clause of the Constitution would be open to interpretation as to whether the jurisdiction of the President of the Republic was national or only in institutions within the scope of the Union.

The TSE (Higher Electoral Court) decided by a vote of five to two that it was national.

Eleven years ago, former minister Carlos Aires Britto, then president of the TSE, declared that a relative of the president in the second degree “can vote, but cannot be elected, as he is in a privileged position.”

Marcos was elected as a parliamentarian in the city of the Sao Paulo metropolitan area in 2012, when Lula was no longer president.

The same thing happened to the Bolsonaro clan.

As for the Bolsonaro clan, the only ones who could run while their father was president children will be Eduardo, Carlos and Flavio Bolsonaro, children “03”, “02” and “01” Zhair. By law, they can try to be re-elected to positions they already hold – Flavio’s term as senator expires until January 2027.

In the case of Jair Renan, “04”, who never contested the election, the nomination would have been banned.

The same condition will apply to the president’s siblings and his wife, Michelle. The rule also applies to brothers, sisters and children of the first lady.

If Bolsonaro had been re-elected president, the rule imposed on his children would have lasted until the 2026 elections. That is, only in 2028 could they run for other positions.

But since he lost the election, his blood relatives are now free to run for any office in the next election.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



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).
