In a meeting with Lira, deputies defend lowering the tone against Petrobras – 06/21/2022 – Panel

At the meeting with the president of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), on Monday night (20), party leaders expressed concern about the tone of the House’s offensive against fuel readjustments.

Lira himself has been heavily criticizing the state-owned company, as in an article published in Folha on Sunday (19).

Not because the problem is not serious – the majority reported being demanded by voters and there are fears about the effects on the ballot box.

But because the tone adopted can end up bringing the responsibility for an issue for which they do not have many tools to solve to the lap of parliamentarians.

Not for nothing, the deputies criticized the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, and the Minister of Mines and Energy, Adolfo Sachsida, at the meeting. In the evaluation of those present, both are omitted when they should take the lead in the search for a solution.

To allies, Lira has said that she misses former minister Bento Albuquerque, such is Sachsida’s inability.

The current holder of the portfolio participated this Tuesday (21) in a hearing in the Chamber and, instead of lowering the temperature, he was criticized by base and opposition parliamentarians.

One of the most disputed points was when he extolled Petrobras’ high profits. “I would like to share here a ranking of oil companies around the world. We can see that Petrobras was the third that had the highest net profit, despite being the sixth in production, the sixth in employees, the seventh in net equity; it was the third in profit and the second that distributed the most dividends”, he said.

In the opinion of parliamentarians, the minister lacked tact to understand that it was not a presentation for investors, but for parliamentarians charged with high inflation.
