The former special secretary for Debureaucratization, Management and Government of the Ministry of Economy, Paulo Uebel, spoke to CNN Brazil this Wednesday (23), on the discussion about the PEC of the Explosion.
Uebel defended that, at this moment, the ideal is to define the parameters and limits that will direct the action of the next government, but it is a discussion that requires more time.
For him, it is essential to analyze the scenario in the country today. “It is estimated that by the end of the year, the government should have a primary surplus of around R$900 billion. That is, since 2013 the government has not had a positive result”.
With these parameters, Uebel claims that it is not necessary to approve a PEC removing around R$ 200 billion from the spending ceiling. “There is an important conceptual issue: providing predictability that the government will not spend more than it collects and that the debt will not grow more than the country’s GDP”, he points out.
“Taking R$ 200 billion from the budget is the greatest irresponsibility. In addition, the current legislature would be harming the future one, which takes over only in 2023”, evaluates the former secretary.
