In an interview with CNN this Sunday (28), the governor of São Paulo, João Doria – the name chosen by the PSDB as the pre-candidate for the Presidency of the Republic in the 2022 elections –, said that he should announce in two weeks the members of the team that will set up his economic program.
“We will have a competent team producing our economic program. There are six people, we are not going to have an ‘Ipiranga post’”, said Doria, referring to the nickname that President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) gave to Economy Minister Paulo Guedes.
According to Doria, three names on the economic team will be women. The governor preferred not to comment on the possibility of one of the members being the economist Ana Carla Abrão, as verified by analyst Thaís Arbex, from CNN.
During the interview, the governor criticized Bolsonaro’s economic program, especially in relation to the financing of Auxílio Brasil and the PEC dos Precatórios, which he defined as an “attack on Brazil”.
“The aid is good, it’s positive, but not with the breaking of the roof. The government did not do what it should have done”, he stated, defending that reforms should have been made, such as tax and administrative, to make room in the budget.
“The government has to step back and offer assistance within what is not a rupture [do teto de gastos], so as not to abandon 30 million Brazilians who live in poverty,” he said.
Doria also assessed that the “internationality of the Brazilian economy” lacks: “there are no efforts to attract investments, even because there is no credibility”, he said, mentioning the deforestation rates in Brazil.
For the analyst of CNN Priscila Yazbek, however, Doria did not detail during the interview how she would finance a social program without running the risk of disrespecting fiscal responsibility.
