The president of the Senate and of the National Congress, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), has decided to postpone the joint session to vote on a draft resolution regulating the amendments of the 2022 Budget rapporteur, scheduled for Friday (26). Parliamentarians should analyze the subject next Monday (29). The information was disclosed by the O Antagonista website.
Previously, Pacheco and House Speaker Arthur Lira (PP-AL) had asked the Federal Supreme Court (STF) to overturn the decision that suspended payments for the rapporteur’s amendments, also known as the “secret” budget or “parallel”. In plenary votes today, senators questioned the convening of a session of Congress.
“It is very strange that the Senate and the House Bureau have called a meeting for tomorrow [sexta-feira], at 10 o’clock, against the disappearance of the regiment. They called him on a Friday with the lights off. And even worse, this project, which is there, does not improve transparency at all, it does not force the publication of the name, it only says that it will be published on a website, “said Senator Oriovisto Guimarães ( Podemos-PR) in Pacheco.
Although having assured the senators that there was no “casuistry or haste” in the convocation, the President of the Senate decided to comply with the requests of his colleagues, who want more time to analyze the text, and postponed the meeting. With information from the Senate Agency.
