Newcomer Volt Portugal is aiming for the center and wants to elect two deputies

“I’m not really interested in the origins of voting, I’m interested so that when people voted for the Volt, they know what our proposal is and identify with it. If they previously voted for Y or Z, I think it is a little indifferent, but naturally or inclined to our votes coming more from center-left and center-right, “said Thiago Matos Gomes, President of Volt, in an interview with Lusa regarding legislative elections on January 30.

Thiago Matos Gomes expressed a desire to elect two deputies and recognized him as “satisfactory, but insufficient” by the party with the largest number of votes among the parties that did not receive representation in parliament.

“This has already happened in the case of Lisbon with local authorities, so we already have a starting base for legislators,” he said.

According to him, Volt Portugal “does not fit into this dichotomy of left and right” and wants votes from the center and disaffected voters.

A focus on renewable energies, the “nuclear energy debate,” defending the NHS to “be resilient and have better services,” educational reform to enable young people to drop out of school prepared “for the challenges they will face later in adulthood. age. “are the top priorities for Volt.

The Volt leader also highlighted the fight against corruption through a “European institution outside the Portuguese judiciary” as a priority measure.

Regarding the political crisis that led to the anticipation of legislative elections, Thiago Matos Gomes considered “serious irresponsibility at such a time to overthrow the government”, arguing that “this is bad for stability” and “deeply negative” when the country is in a pandemic.

Volt Portugal is running in 19 of 22 constituencies, and “if the pandemic allows,” the president wants to “travel the country with ruins, with“ leaflets ”, a lot with people to“ talk about the party and what new needs to be done for the present ”, stating that he would like the campaign to be“ positive, not against anyone, but to add value. ”

Regarding the fight against the covid-19 pandemic, Volt Portugal considers the vaccination process “successful”, noting that this was made possible by the “massive procurement of vaccines by the European Union and their distribution to member countries”, as well as the commitment of the Portuguese.

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.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
