The highlights were analyzed only on this Wednesday; session had been suspended due to failures in the remote voting system
Opposition politicians to the government criticized this Wednesday (13.Jul.2022) what they called “dribble” in the vote on the PEC on kindnesses and cited the suspension of the session, on Tuesday night (July 12), due to instabilities in the Chamber’s remote voting system.
After the approval of the basic text of the proposal that allows the expansion of social programs, the Chamber’s system presented problems and the President of the House, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), postponed the vote to this Wednesday (13.Jul.2022) of the highlights and the 2nd round. The congressmen concluded the approval of the PEC and, now, the text goes to promulgation.
Without presenting evidence, opponents spoke of fraud.
“Lira knew she would lose the vote last night on the ‘state of emergency’. She suspended the session because this would make the PEC unfeasible. It changes the rule of the game 3 times and allows deputies who didn’t even come to Brasília to vote. Then 500 votes appeared. Fraud! Cynicism and shamelessness. renounce Lira”, published the federal deputy Ivan Valente (Psol-SP).
the federal deputy Tiago Mitraud (Novo-MG) criticized Lira’s act that released 100% remote voting. The measure was made possible to ensure that the presence for the PEC vote was maintained and the government did not run a greater risk of defeat.
“Unfortunately, despite our efforts, the PEC Kamikaze has been dealt with in the Chamber. Casuistic change earlier today allowed deputies to vote 100% remote, as at the peak of the pandemic. When they saw that there were no votes to keep the full text of the PEC, they changed the rule with the ball rolling”, published.
the deputy Marcel Van Hattem (Novo-RS) referred to the criticism about the extension of social benefits to 81 days after the election. The approved PEC will have an estimated cost of BRL 41.25 billion outside the spending ceiling.
“Shameful! The approved PEC Kamikaze is another absurdity in an election year! The next generations will suffer even more from fiscal irresponsibility”, published.
