On Tuesday, the Council of Ethics and Parliamentary Decorum approved, on a score of 13 to 3, the two-month suspension of the mandate of Federal Deputy Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ). The deputy’s defense would have five days to appeal the decision to the Committee on Constitution, Justice and Citizenship (CCJ), counting from the date of publication of the decision, but gave up the appeal period.
