The president Jair Bolsonaro (no party) stated this Wednesday, 21, that he will carry out a ministerial reform next Monday, 26. In an interview with Young Pan News Itapetininga, Bolsonaro informed that, after his discharge from the Vila Nova Star hospital, he is focused on making “small” changes in the command of the folders. “We are even working on a small ministerial change, which should take place on Monday, to be more precise, for us to continue administering Brazil here,” the president announced during an interview. Bolsonaro again defended that his entire government was formed by technical criteria, without nominations by parties. According to him, only three names came from politics. “The political nomination came from the ruralist caucus, for example, which indicated Tereza Cristina, an excellent name”, exemplified the president. According to him, the name of former deputy Onyx Lorenzoni, current minister of the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic of Brazil, is “in his account”. The head of the Executive also mentioned the name of Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, who assumed the seat of Minister of Tourism between 2019 and 2020, but has now returned to the post of federal deputy. “Basically these were the political indications, in quotes. The rest were all technical criteria”, he argued.
