Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) may begin his third term as head of the Presidency of the Republic with at least thirteen ministers more than the current first rank, in accordance with the proposal made by the transition team for a new path to the Esplanada dos Ministérios , which must be evaluated by the president-elect the week we see.
Jair Bolsonaro (PL) will leave 23 active ministries to or leave the Palácio do Planalto. With the dismemberment of some pastes and the recreation of others — whether in the form of ministries or special secretaries (nas quais or secretário may have the status of minister) — Esplanada could house 36 ministers at the beginning of Lula’s government.
“I already have 80% of the ministry in my head, but I don’t want to build a ministry for myself. I want to build a ministry for the political forces that will help me win the elections”, said the elected president, at this sixth fair (2), at the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center (CCBB), headquarters of the transition.
“It will be the same ministry that it has. We will have the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Development, the Ministry of Fisheries, Racial Equality, Women, two Human Rights, everything that people have more or two Original Powders”, he promised. Lula affirmed, however, that he will only start announcing the names after being graduated by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), on the 12th.
The new design includes all the proposals delivered by the Technical Groups (GTs) of the transition cabinet in our preliminary reports, but the final decision will be up to Lula. “This ministerial restructuring is under discussion. The week that we see should be presented to President Lula all the ministries and secretaries”, designed at the fifth fair (1st) or the coordinator of the GTs, Aloizio Mercadante.
One of the most defended changes by the leadership of the transition is “ministerial reform” and the dismemberment of the current Ministry of Economy. The union of economic pasta created by Bolsonaro was criticized by the coordinator of two GTs.
“He created a single ministry that does not have a factory, industrial policy, and a minister only, who is suffocated.” The defended solution is the recreation of the Ministry of Finance, with the division of the Planning, Administration and Management of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services — which the PT administration is called “Desenvolvimento, Indústria e Comércio Exterior” –, labeled as “ essential” by Mercadante.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (Map) must be divided. It will be maintained, but it will give life to two other pastas. Uma é a da Pesca, nominally defended by Lula in this sixth fair. If the name is repeated by the previous government of the petista, it will be called the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquiculture.
The recreation of the pasta of Desenvolvimento Agrário is given as certain by the coordinator of the technical group of the area, deputy Pedro Uczai (PT-SC), who has just announced the new name: Ministry of Family Agriculture and Food Saudável. The picture must also see, in part, the current structure of the Map.
Lula also defended, in this sixth (2), the criação da pasta dos Povos Originários. “I don’t know if it’s going to be in the face of a ministry, or if it’s going to be a special secretary linked to the Presidency of the Republic, but we’re still going to discuss it,” she explained.
“I am sorry that we need to give a sign of respect to the indigenous populations in this country, and I am sorry that they are extremely important and necessary people to help take care of our forest, to help take care of the climate in this country”, Lula justified. In the Bolsonaro government, the indigenous peoples are represented in a coordination of the 5th level of the Ministry of Women, Family and Human Rights.
Nessa himself says, the elected president also guarantees the recration of women’s pasta, of Racial Equality and of two Human Rights — currently allocated in the form of national secretariats in the same ministry.
Two ministries incorporated into other bodies by Bolsonaro’s management and that must become independent again, second interlocutors of the transition heard on reserve by CNNSão Esporte e Cidades.
A CNN It is urgent that the proposal foresees that the current Ministry of Citizenship be dismembered between the groups of Sports and Social Development and Combat of Fome. According to a high source of the transition team, this division is not correct between the coordinates of the two areas.
The Ministry of Regional Development tends to be separated from the Ministério das Cidades, according to two involved in the meetings of the WGs that have taken place CNN. Camilo Santana, coordinator of the transition area, defended this week that it was “necessary” for the new government to separate the ministries of Cities and National Integration (former name of Regional Development under Lula’s administration).
Not depending on the will of the responsible technical group, the Special Secretary of Social Communication (Secom) will be disassociated from the Ministry of Communications. According to a source gives CNN who participated in these discussions, “everyone is in favor of separating”.
The idea of separation still depends on Lula’s approval. In previous governments of the PT, Secom had been elevated to ministerial status. Bolsonaro incorporated the structure to the Presidency of the Republic, initially, and later to subordinate to the Communications.
Two other divisions must take place, in accordance with Lula’s forecast for him to turn to the desire that Esplanada has the last government of the PT. Labor and Social Security — which today are together at the same paste — can be separated. The Ministry of Culture — currently incorporated into Tourism — must be recreated
There is a split that divides opinions within the new government — but still follow the radar of the transition team — and between Justice and Public Security. “We are working with two stages, as separate ministries and as the current regime”, affirmed the coordinator of the WG of the area, Flávio Dino. Or martelo will be beaten by the president, but Lula will advance in this sixth fair that will continue on the same basis of his own second term — on occasion, the pastas were united under one single minister.
Aloizio Mercadante declared that the creation or re-creation of ministries should not entail an increase in expenses, because, secondly, “the secretaries will have the same expense together or separately”. “Or that shifts the focus to the area of public policy. This is the discussion that we are making, strategic”, defended the coordinator of two technical groups of the transition.
