Lewandowski accepts the request and gives Alcolumbre a deadline to determine the date of the Senate hearing in Mendonça – Prime Time Zone


The appointment of the former justice minister was made by Bolsonaro on July 13 and has not yet been appreciated by the senators

DIDA SAMPAIO/ESTADÃO CONTENTAndré Mendonça was nominated to the STF on July 13 and has not yet been judged by the Senate

the minister of STF Ricardo Lewandowski accepted the senators’ request Alessandro Vieira (Citizenship SE) and Jorge Kajuru (Podemos-GO) and established a period of five days for the president of the Constitution and Justice Committee (CCJ) of the Senate, Davi Alcolumbre (DEM-AP), determine the date of the hearing of André Mendonça, appointed by President Jair Bolsonaro (non-party) to the Supreme Court. Mendonça received the nomination on July 13 and the senators have not yet appreciated it. The decision to schedule the hearing is Alcolumbre, who has avoided setting a date.

Last Thursday, 16th, the president of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco, stated that he would talk to the senator from Amapá to unlock the nomination and that the reasons for not having been marked could be many. In the writ of mandamus issued by Vieira and Kajuru, the senators allege that several requests have already been made for the date of the hearing to be determined, without success, and that the public interest is seriously harmed. “The fact of [o STF] not having a Minister in its composition means that thousands of facts are awaiting judgment”, they argue. The waiting time is longer than that of any minister in the current composition of the Supreme Court.
