President Jair Bolsonaro has proposed an amount of R $ 2.128 billion for the election fund, which will be used by parties in next year’s campaign. The amount is provided for in the Annual Finance Bill (PLOA) presented this Tuesday (31) to Congress.
The proposed amount is similar to that of 2020, when the electoral fund for the municipal elections was 2 billion reais. However, the amount must be negotiated with parliamentarians when processing the Budget.
Last week, Bolsonaro vetoed the section of the Budgetary Guidelines Law (LDO) 2022 which set aside 5.7 billion reais for the election fund. Congress can still overrule the veto. With information from Agência Brasil.
