Planalto fears war between Renan Calheiros and Arthur Lira at the CPMI – 04/26/2023

The leader of the MDB in the Senate, Eduardo Braga (AM), was asked by the Planalto Palace to take over as president or rapporteur of the Joint Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPMI) of the coup acts of January 8. The request for the creation of the commission will be read this Wednesday, 26, by the president of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), in the plenary session of the National Congress.

The survey aims to prevent one of the greatest allies of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) in Parliament, Senator Renan Calheiros (MDB-AL), from assuming a formal command post in the CPMI. For Planalto, Renan will already help enough as a member of the collegiate.

Already with a position of command, he will attract the wrath of his arch-rival in Alagoas politics, the mayor, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), which could harm the government in the course of the work of the CPMI. Renan and Lira (PP-AL) are today the main chiefs of politics in the state.

Eduardo Braga responded to the government that it will only be able to decide after consulting its bench and, above all, Renan himself Calheiros. Planalto awaits your definitive answer to be able to demand from Arthur Lira the appointment of a deputy close to the government as rapporteur or chairman of the commission. The two positions will be divided between the Chamber and the Senate, depending on an agreement between the benches.

The MDB is entitled to two seats on the commission. União Brasil is also entitled to nominate two representatives, leaving other parties in the bloc, such as PSDB and Podemos, with one vacancy each.

The PT-PSD-PSB block has the right to nominate five members. Two other blocks will be able to indicate two senators each, the PP-Republicans block and the PL with Novo. The remaining nomination will go to the largest group among the parties that do not have enough senators to qualify for seats.

government considers an understanding between the Senate and the Chamber to be decisive since the distribution of vacancies among the 32 members of the CPMI, split fifty-fifty between senators and deputies, indicates a small margin of majority of votes against the parliamentarians to be nominated by the parties of opposition.

Oppositionists are trying to get the CPI to accept the version that the invasions of the Congress, Planalto and Federal Supreme Court (STF) buildings on January 8 by coup plotters allied with former President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) were actually facilitated by the victimize President Lula.current government to
