Marina on ministry: Not even Lula will be able to reopen doors – 05/24/2023 – Politics

The Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Marina Silva, again criticized this Wednesday (24th) the dehydration of the portfolio proposed in the National Congress and endorsed by President Lula (PT).

The report by Deputy Isnaldo Bulhões (MDB-AL) removes CAR (Rural Environmental Registry), ANA (National Water Agency) and solid waste management from the environmental portfolio, in addition to excluding the demarcation of territories from the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples of the peoples.

“President Lula’s credibility, or the Minister of the Environment, is not enough. The world will look at the legal framework and see that the government structure is not the one that won the elections, it is the government structure that lost. This will close all our doors,” she told the House Environment Committee.

According to her, the changes could jeopardize the trade agreement between Mercosur and the European Union, since the Europeans have been trying to impose firm environmental restrictions for the signing of the term.

Marina Silva also said that she will try to revert the alterations during the procedure in Congress. “We are going to have to have a debate, I hope there is the necessary understanding to prevent us from doing this amputation”, she said.

According to her, Minister Carlos Favaro (Agriculture) himself complained about the changes, and the changes go against the application of the government’s environmental policy.

“[Estão criando uma] situation that will be very difficult. Your that several segments of society came to say that they are going to judicialize [as mudanças]”, he completed.

As shown to Sheet, the Planalto Palace acted to try to avoid defeats in priority areas for the president in the provisional measure for the reorganization of the Esplanada dos Ministérios. The balance of the negotiation of the new format of the Esplanade was negative for the Minister of the Environment.

In an interview with GloboNews this Wednesday, the MP’s rapporteur, federal deputy Isnaldo Bulhões Jr., countered the criticism that his report empties the functions of the portfolio headed by Marina and said that the minister “is totally positioning herself out of context, going from against the thinking of the government”.

“When she speaks, I don’t know if she’s moved by a narcissistic spirit, that the Ministry of the Environment or the environmental protection policy is being emptied, that’s not true. All competences are being preserved, that’s a State policy , it is not an individual, person policy,” he said.
