Rodrigo Neves promises to cut 80% of the state’s 50,000 commissioned positions and create 150,000 jobs | Elections 2022 in Rio de Janeiro

Rodrigo Neves (PDT) opened this Monday (12) the series of interviews with the RJ1 with candidates for state government.

In 35 minutes, the former mayor of Niterói promised to “cut 80% of the 50,000 commissioned positions” in the state public administration and “to create 150,000 jobs in the first 2 years of the government”.

Candidates who scored 6% or more in last Tuesday’s (6) IPEC survey were invited. By drawing, the next ones will be Marcelo Freixo (PSB), on Tuesday (13), and Cláudio Castro (PL), on Wednesday (14). The others will have 2-minute interviews.

Neves cited the Ceperj secret office scandal as a starting point for cutting spending.

“What I wanted to assure everyone who is watching is that: if Rio counts the 27,000 secret positions, Rio has more than 50,000 commissioned positions in the state government. I will extinguish 80% of state commissioned positions. Because the money from Ceperj, the money from these positions, in the state is what is lacking for day care centers, schools, UPAS and hospitals”.

Currently Ceperj is being investigated by the Public Ministry of Rio (MPRJ), the State Audit Court (TCE) and the Electoral Attorney’s Office. About 18,000 people were hired by the agency with the authorization to receive their salaries at the cashier, with bank order, or through autonomous payment receipt (RPA).

The case became known as “secret positions”, as the appointment of the people was not published in the Official Gazette. The payment methods adopted, according to the MP, make traceability difficult and facilitate money laundering.

Rodrigo Neves promised to expand integral education.

“I built a record number of schools and we put all the children in kindergarten full-time. This is very important, above all, because the child will have better conditions to develop in elementary and high school. Full-time day care is important for working mothers, as many of them can’t get a job, or can’t keep their jobs because there’s no full-time day care and early childhood education,” she said.

He also promised to reopen the Cieps.

“If they hadn’t abandoned the Cieps, we wouldn’t be losing so many young people to crime. Therefore, my commitment is to reopen all the Brizolões, all the Cieps that are abandoned”, said the pedestrian.

The pedestrian also said that he will take the Lilac Room to the entire state.

“It is a program in partnership with the Court of Justice and the Civil Police for women victims of violence. Niterói has a service that is not available in any other city. Women victims of violence receive a minimum wage allowance to be able to leave the house, because they suffer the violence of their husband, ”she said.

“Often, these women are unable to report they are suffering because they do not have the support.

As he did in the interview last month for the Desenrola, Rio podcast, Rodrigo Neves defended himself from the operation that arrested him in 2018, during his term.

The Public Ministry said that Neves would be the head of a scheme that diverted almost R$11 million in funds from transport in Niterói.

The civil action for improbity was dismissed, but Neves remains a defendant in the criminal proceeding for passive corruption.

“What happened in 2018 is truly infamous. The Court itself, a few weeks later, declared that action illegal. The panel of the Court of Justice dropped the charges. Afterwards, the Public Prosecutor’s Office, who is the author of the action, made a request to justice.

“It was an attempt to take over the Niterói City Hall, based on a false plea bargain by a businessman who was not even from Niterói, he was from Resende,” he said.

Asked about the advance of trafficking on communities in Niterói, Neves replied:

“Who is drug trafficking rooting for to win the gubernatorial election? Who is the militia rooting for to win the gubernatorial election? It’s not me,” he said.

“We are going to have a public security policy based on evidence, with planning, we are going to investigate money laundering, we are going to integrate with the Federal Police, with the Armed Forces, to fight drug and weapons trafficking, because Rio does not produces neither weapons nor drugs”, he amended.

The pedestrian also announced “a task force with the justice system”.

“What you need is a government that works for the citizen. What I guarantee you is that we will create jobs to recover health units, schools, UPAs and hospitals”, he promised.

“I will generate 150,000 jobs in the first 2 years of government with these work fronts in partnership for the private sector, because there needs to be regulation, there needs to be planning. We are going to create these work fronts to bring water and sewage to another and clean up the Guanabara Bay, as we did in Niterói”, he described.

RJ1 asked Neves about a May inspection carried out by the Public Ministry in nine health units in Niterói. The agency cited a lack of paracetamol, ibuprofen, bandages, gloves, dressings and doctors. The MPRJ also stated that the drug center operated without a permit or health license.

“Then you have to discuss with the UN. The UN recognized Niterói as the best health system,” she replied.
