Bolsonaro refuses to help health workers in the midst of a pandemic
On the other hand, the president vetoed it projects to supply 50,000 reais (approximately $ 900) to health workers who were disabled due to the coronavirus, while receiving protection from the head of the Chamber of Deputies to avoid many requests for impeachment.
Bolsonaro claimed that the legislation, already approved by Congress, is “contrary to the public interest” and “unconstitutional”.
The veto must be analyzed again by the legislator in order to be formally approved.
“Despite the merits of the proposal and the good intention of the legislator to propose the payment of compensation, the proposal contains legal obstacles”, alleged, according to the document published by the Presidency.
“The introduction of isolation of employees for seven days in the context of the Covid-19 emergency creates legal uncertainty and technical incapacityhe commented.
The political assessment is cooling
Former President of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia, announced that he will not give the green light to any of the 48 requests for prosecution against the President, given that there is no breach of responsibility committed in relation to his handling of coronavirus.
The declaration was interpreted as a lifeline for Bolsonaro, who since June has managed to stop the country’s institutional crisis by reaching agreements with sectors in Congress to prevent a removal process for his handling of the pandemic, strongly questioned by much of the political arc, society and many nations.
“I do not see in these requests for rebuttal any crime committed by the President,” Maia told the Roda Viva program, from São Paulo’s general channel TV Cultura.
“We are in a moment of pandemic and it is not time to decide an impeachment without motivation for it, that is why I do not decide”added Maia, who nevertheless questioned Bolsonaro for having “minimized” the trend in the pandemic.
