With the announcement of a PEC for the Transition, which would release resources outside the spending ceiling to make a permanent Bolsa Família of R$ 600 feasible, the new federal government received messages from both the financial market and center politicians about the expectation of choosing the future finance minister.
According to reports made to CNN this Thursday (3), members of the party alliance that elected Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva received advice so that, in a nod to fiscal responsibility, the future president should indicate a technical name, and not a political one, for the conduct of the national economic policy.
The risk of the new government predicting spending outside the spending ceiling of up to BRL 100 billion generated fear even among supporters of the new management.
For them, despite the effort to fulfill the promise of R$ 600, the authorization of an amount greater than the expenditure foreseen for the social program would not be a good calling card for the new administration, which defends a national union.
To quell criticism, the message transmitted was that it would be more logical to indicate a technical name for the Treasury and leave the political profile to Planning, the department responsible for preparing the budget and which ends up negotiating with Congress NacDefinir a prominent image.
On Thursday (3), despite rumors in the financial market, former minister Henrique Meirelles denied the CNN who has been invited to take over the Farm. Meirelles supported Lula and is taken for granted in the economic team of the next government.
In addition to him, the president of Fiesp (Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo), Josué Gomes da Silva, and the former director-general of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Roberto Azevêdo are cited as listed in the future economic team.
Lula, however, has not yet chosen any name. The expectation is that he will return from vacation this Friday (4) from Bahia and will only focus on his ministerial team from next week, when he must travel to Brasília for a series of political talks, such as with the presidents of the Federal Senate, Chamber of Deputies and the Federal Supreme Court.
