The special committee of the Chamber of Deputies that analyzes the Proposal for Amendment to the Constitution 125/11, which deals with the postponement of elections on dates close to holidays, approved on Monday (9) the report by deputy Renata Abreu. The original text underwent a series of changes during its processing and proposes the alteration of a series of provisions in the electoral legislation.
The base text was approved by 22 votes to 11. In the voting of the highlights, the deputies agreed with a PCdoB highlight that removes from the text the forecast of the so-called mixed district in the following elections for federal, state and councilors. In this system, there is no need to delimit electoral districts by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE). The Federation unit itself would be the electoral district.
Among the approved changes are the pure district, with the election of the most voted candidate without taking into account the party’s votes, as happens today in the proportional system, for the positions of federal and state deputies in the next elections, the return of party coalitions and the adoption of the so-called “preferential vote” for the President of the Republic, governors and mayors, from 2024. In this last item, the voter has the possibility to nominate up to five candidates in order of preference. In the counting, the voters’ options will be counted until a candidate gathers the absolute majority of the votes for the head of the Executive.
