About to calamity situation, which ends next Sunday, Mariana Vieira da Silva confirmed that it will be renewed.
One of the novelties of the Council of Ministers this Thursday was announced by the Minister of the Environment, João Pedro Matos Fernandes, who said that the Government has already approved its proposed law to be able to impose maximum margins for fuels simple and gas cylinders, for “one or two months” at a time.
“Once the proposed law is approved, the Government may, by decree, and always for limited periods in time, set a maximum margin for the sale of fuel. This margin is a sum of margins related to transport, storage, etc”, explained the government official.
The Executive will thus be able to establish a maximum price by ordinance when there are “unusually high and unjustified” margins. With the Government’s new “tool” to set prices, gasoline would go down nine cents per liter and the diesel one cent.
The proposal will also go to Parliament.
The minister for modernization of the State and Public Administration, Alexandra Leitão, announced a draft law that provides that in all parish councils there is a member to work on a part-time basis.
This measure corresponds to 29 million euros from the State Budget (OE).
