Brazil Confident Congress Will Not Halt Due to Corruption Probes

The head of Brazil’s Secretariat of Institutional Relations, minister Jaques Wagner, had a meeting yesterday with senator DelcÀ­dio Amaral, from Mato Grosso do Sul’s Workers Party.

Amaral is the chairman of the Parliamentary Investigative Commission (CPI) that is probing corruption in the Brazilian Post Office.


Following the meeting Wagner declared, “I do not see any risk of political instability because this is being dealt with in a mature manner.”


Wagner added that President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has stated publicly that he wants the CPIs to investigate charges of corruption and punish the guilty, without bringing other congressional work to a standstill.


Amaral said he had the same opinion and did not expect the Congress to come to a halt because of the investigations.


“The Congress is mature and democracy is strong in Brazil. People can separate the investigation from the normal operation of the legislative branch,” he declared.
