In an interview with Panico, the senator stated that there are reasons for the removal of the minister, but considered: ‘Document will travel to the bottom of the drawer’
In an interview with the Pânico program, Young pan, this Thursday, 8, the senator Alvaro Dias (Pode-PR) analyzed the performance of Federal Supreme Court (STF) and said he did not believe in the removal of the Minister of the Court, Alexandre de Moraes. “I do not condemn impeachment requests because they are a form of popular pressure, but I am not about selling false illusions, there is no chance of being successful due to the rules in place. Under the current process, the evaluation of the impeachment request, carried out by the president of the Senate, is the first step for it to be opened because it is up to the head of the House to decide whether to accept it or not. Hence, the correct thing would be to submit the document to the Senate’s advocacy to verify its jurisprudence and legality and then to the Senate table that would recommend – or not – its judgment in the plenary. In the current context, requests for impeachment are dying in the first step, that of reception, more than 40 of them were delivered in the last year to the president of the Senate and they were all archived. The path they take is the bottom of the drawer. It wouldn’t have to be that way, all requests should be analyzed ”, he said.
Last month, an impeachment request against the minister Alexandre de Moraes was filed by parliamentarians in the Senate. In addition to the request, the senators delivered a petition with about 3 million supporters demanding the overthrow of Moraes. Alvaro Dias agrees that there are reasons for the removal, but reinforces that the act comes up against institutional barriers. “The Supreme Court is an institution essential to the rule of law and democracy and, as such, must be preserved. We can condemn its members for practicing incorrect acts, but we have to preserve the Court because the ministers are transitory, but the institutions are permanent, definitive and irreplaceable. We have acts committed by ministers that would technically and legally justify a proposal for impeachment, there are plenty of reasons, but unfortunately there is a privileged forum – selective legislation that protects and privileges the authorities of the three branches of government. It is up to the Congress vote on this project, as well as change the model of composition of the Superior Courts, replacing the political nomination with meritocracy. With meritocracy, there will be no political sponsorship, we will have a more adequate judgment and the Supreme Court will recover its concept, importance and respectability ”, he concluded.
