Prosecutors of the Republic this Thursday elected two allies of Attorney General Augusto Aras to the Superior Council of the Public Ministry and paved the way for him to have a majority in the collegiate, responsible for, among other things, determining the realization of investigations and elaborating the criteria. distribution of inquiries among prosecutors.
In August, the mandates of the board members Mario Bonsaglia, Nicolao Dino, José Bonifácio de Andrada and Maria Caetana Cintra Santos ended. All, to a greater or lesser degree, were opponents of Aras.
To replace them, there are two elections. A college of prosecutors last week elected Mario Bonsaglia (who already had a seat on the board) and Luiza Frischeisen, who oppose Aras.
But this Thursday, two prosecutors close to the PGR were elected: former Federal Public Prosecutor’s Attorney Elizeta de Paiva Ramos received 47 votes and Alcides Martins, the director general of the Federal Public Ministry’s Higher School, had 39. voters within a universe of 99 eligible to vote. The other two contesting the election, Bonifácio Andrada and Luciano Mariz, considered to be Aras’ opponents, had respectively 29 and 20 votes.
With that, Aras, who had an uncomfortable situation in the collegiate, with a majority of six against him, managed, at the end of the two elections, to have a majority of six in his favor. The new collegiate takes office in August, from when the attorney general intends to put to a vote a reformulation of the PGR.
