The president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), said this Friday (5) to the CNN that the voting in the second round of the PEC dos Precatórios, scheduled for Tuesday (9), will be approved with more than the 312 votes registered this week.

“We are in plan A, we did not lose the first round and we are going to win the second round, with the help of all the parties that voted. I do not believe in radical changes because there was no lack of knowledge of the text”, said the congressman, in a telephone interview.

Lira was asked about a possible plan B in case the vote was rejected in the plenary. “We have plan A and we can never speak with perspective. This question creates insecurity. Plan A is in effect, it is being discussed with great caution, conversation, prudence, with a lot of work – without spreading embers, without hurting party autonomy”, he said.

“We will maintain and increase [os votos favoráveis], because we voted this first round with only 456 out of 513 deputies [presentes]. Many will come next week, let’s increase the quorum and, of course, the prospect of voting in favour.”

End of the Car Wash

The congressman also said that he considers that possible candidacies of former judge Sergio Moro, who should join the Podemos next week, and Deltan Dallagnol, who asked to resign from the position of prosecutor of the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) and is studying a possible migration to the policy “would annihilate Operation Lava Jato”.

“[Essas candidaturas] they would make it clear that the objective of the operation, with all the successes it had, was always political protagonism, the political action to make use of it”, said Lira.

“Now, prosecutor Dallagnol, who committed numerous abuses in the name of what he is proposing today, is fleeing from the punishments of the [Conselho Nacional do Ministério Público] CNMP – there are more than 40 processes, including the process stopped at the Supreme Court, in view of the minister [Edson] Fachin,” he continued.

“And then he comes to the field of politics and I hope he’s successful, he can go to Congress and there we can have good debates if the population understands that he deserves for the work he’s done.”
