President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) is expected to announce the nomination of Senator Jean Paul Prates (PT-RN) for the presidency of Petrobras this Friday (30), according to an investigation by CNN with sources from the transitional cabinet. The prediction is that the announcement will happen around 10 pm.
The likely nominee for president of the state-owned company was part of the technical group (GT) of Mines and Energy in the transition cabinet and has already taken a position against the privatization of the company and the International Parity Price (PPI) policy.
“Who defines price policy for anything in the country, whether it will intervene or not, whether it will be free or not, whether it will be international or not, is the government. What we have to undo once and for all is to say that Petrobras is the one who defines the fuel price policy”, stated Jean Paul after one of the first WG meetings, at the end of November.
The parliamentarian from Rio Grande do Norte was rapporteur for two bills aimed at intervening in the price of fuel and altering the taxation of the sector. The proposals are stalled in the Chamber of Deputies.
Alexandre Silveira (PSD-MG), the future Minister of Mines and Energy, had already stated that the appointment of Jean Paul does not have any legislative impediment for the parliamentarian to assume the position.
