Mayor, Arthur Lira, appointed deputy Magda Mofatto (PL-GO) this Friday morning; tendency is that Casa keep prisoner of bolsonarista
In the morning of this Friday, 19, the president of Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), chose the deputy Magda Mofatto (PL-GO) to be the draftsman of the opinion on the arrest of the deputy Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ). She replaces Carlos Sampaio (PSDB-SP), which was announced, but had not been formally nominated. The toucan, who has been the party leader in the House for the past two years, released a note in which he said he was surprised by the change and says he prefers to believe that the change was not motivated by political issues. The deputies analyze, from 5 pm, if Silveira, arrested after the release of a video with attacks on the ministers of the Supreme Federal Court (STF), will continue to be detained. As Prime Time Zone showed, the tendency is for this to occur.
“Obviously I was surprised by this decision to change the rapporteur, which took place at the end of last night, when I was already analyzing all the procedural and merit aspects that involve the question of Deputy Daniel. I note that my surprise was due mainly to the fact that my nomination was made during a discussion at the college of leaders, and it was President Arthur Lira who called me, asking if I accepted the choice. I promptly answered yes, ”says an excerpt from the note. “In my interviews, shortly after being appointed as rapporteur, I made it clear that the case would be analyzed with the“ common sense and balance ”necessary for an issue of this political and institutional dimension. I don’t know if that worried any party or parliamentarian. I want to believe not! But the truth is that the Mayor has this prerogative and can, in fact, appoint a new rapporteur. At this moment of polarization, it is not for me to criticize the change, but to work so that all the decisions of the Chamber favor the strengthening of Brazilian democracy ”, adds the parliamentarian.
Former prosecutor of the São Paulo Public Prosecutor’s Office, Carlos Sampaio stated, in an interview with Prime Time Zone, on Thursday night, 18, that the slogans for his opinion would be common sense, common sense and balance. “Tomorrow, the watchwords for this opinion are: common sense, common sense and balance. We are analyzing extreme conduct on the part of a parliamentary colleague and we have an obligation to act not in an extreme way, but in a rational way. That will be my opinion as I report, ”he said.
