The special adviser for institutional relations at the Ministry of the Economy, Waldery Rodrigues, has been dismissed from his post. The order, signed by the Chief of Staff, Ciro Nogueira, was published in the Official Journal on Tuesday (3). According to the publication, the resignation was made on request and is retroactive to July 28. Rodrigues held the role of special adviser since April of this year. Previously, he even held the post of Special Secretary of Finance, equivalent to that of the former Minister of Finance, but was replaced by Bruno Funchal. The exchange was made after a process of attrition of the economic team as part of the negotiations on the 2021 budget.
