federal deputy Ricardo Barros (PP-PR) said this Thursday, the 21st, that Lula (PT) will have a lot of work to do to build its base in the coming months. In an interview for the program “The Morning Paper”give News of New Panthe deputy stated that his party did not close an alliance with the new government, even though it approved it Transitional Constitutional Amendment (PEC) proposal, known as “Fura-Teto”, in Oda. “We, from the Bolsonarian base, voted because the president [Jair Bolsonaro] agreed to offer the increase of Auxílio Brasil and the minimum wage, proposals from his campaign. Therefore, we voted in favor. I do not see that positions have been negotiated for this vote. I think Lula will have a lot of work to do to form his base. We, from Progressista, have a large majority of deputies who cannot approach the government because the environment of their electoral base does not allow it. So we have some time to see how things go. If the government is doing good, if the government is doing bad. We have to see what knot it will become. The takeover of the president-elect’s government is mainly by the PT. Therefore, this is a must-read for other parties. There are 37 ministries, many of which are attractive to the parties,” he said. “The union has just begun. This vote does not mark the basis of the elected government”, he continued.

Approved last Wednesday, the 21st, the PEC intends to maintain the payment of R$600 to beneficiaries of Brazil’s help in 2023. The second round saw 331 votes in favor and 163 against the measure, which will have an impact of $145 billion in addition to the spending cap for the new government of Lula can spend the next year on social programs – like Gas permit AND Folk pharmacyexcept for the return of Bolsa Familia and real growth in minimum wage with inflation adjustment. For Ricardo Barros, the text ended up being favorable for all parties. “I thought the minister was right [Fernando] Hadadi negotiated with the leaders of the House the stay of the amendments of the KZP, the reduction to one year and the removal of some other devices. This allowed for an agreement. Our party, PP, for example, voted against it in the Senate, but in favor of the CEC in the Chamber. This allowed approval to guarantee, through a Congressional decision, R$ 200 Bolsa Família for Brazilians and a real increase in the minimum wage. There were two promises from President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), which authorized the base to approve, even though he was not elected. Of course, during the negotiations, the transitional government took a little more than we were willing to give, which was $80 billion and a one-year mandate. It is a normal parliamentary negotiation and I think that in the end it was a good result for everyone. The Parliament takes its prerogative to make its own decisions, which were being usurped by the STF”, stressed Barros, before repeating: “Do not think that this KZP vote will be the basis of the next government. Its not! It was done because we had a commitment to guarantee an additional R$ 200 to people in need in Brazil.”
