The elected government’s difficulties in articulating with the current Congress led some parliamentarians to revive the idea of ​​leaving the PEC aside and opting for a provisional measure to release extraordinary credits, in case it is not possible to negotiate the extra ceiling for the program Bolsa Familia for over a year.

On Thursday, the difficulties became evident with public demands from parliamentarians for more engagement from the president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva or, at least, the appointment of a finance minister who can validate agreements negotiated in Congress.

This was the position expressed, for example, by Senator Jaques Wagner (PT-BA), on Thursday, and which should be taken to Lula at a meeting this Friday, in São Paulo.
