The work of the CPMI, which seeks to investigate those responsible for the acts of January 8, in Brasília, will officially begin this Thursday (25), at 9:00 am, with the appointment of the members and the president, deputy and rapporteur of the commission, according to the senator Otto Alencar (PSD-BA).

The leader of the party in the Senate says he will open the session, but that the nominations will depend on negotiations between the party leaders. “I open the session, I’m going to consult the leaders about whether or not there is an understanding for the nomination of the president and vice president, later the nomination of the rapporteur”, he said in an interview with GloboNews.

According to the senator, if there is no understanding, the grassroots and opposition parties will “send the slates to a clash in voting within the scope of the mixed CPI. It may be that there are two candidates or not, it is undefined until now”, he added.

Alencar says that the investigations already in place both in the Legislative Chamber of the Federal District and in the internal investigations of other bodies already have enough information about the perpetrators and causes of the acts of vandalism. For him, “we all already know about the omissions, there was an omission by the Military Police, by the governor of the DF who was removed, and they were all identified”.
