In an interview with Brazilian journalists in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) this Saturday (13) defended the approval of the proposed amendment to the Constitution (PEC) 23/2021, the so-called PEC of precatório. The text, approved by the Chamber and being analyzed by the Senate, postpones the payment of part of the Union’s judicial debts which expire in 2022, in addition to modifying the calculation of the expenditure ceiling.
“We cannot pay 90 billion reais next year within the limit because everything would stop in Brazil. Is the goal to stop everything in Brazil? We are in parliament negotiating this, ”the president said, according to the G1. “It’s harder [aprovar a PEC no Senado], We know that. And look: debts of up to R $ 600,000, we’re going to pay them all.
Bolsonaro arrived in the United Arab Emirates this Saturday morning and visited Expo Dubai, an international fair in which 192 countries participate. Also during the event, he was received for a bilateral meeting by the Emir of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to whom he awarded the National Order of the Southern Cross.
