The elected president's team, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL), began the transition phase of the government in Brasilia on Monday (5). The announcement on the creation of ten working groups indicates the ministerial structure of the next management, which aims to reduce the current 29 to 17 dossier.
Called Extraordinary Minister, the future Chief of the Civil House, Onyx Lorenzoni, began his day at a meeting in Planalto Palace with the current occupier of the post, Eliseu Padilha. He then headed the first meeting of the CCBB (Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil) transition team.
In addition to Lorenzoni, another 27 were appointed by President Michel Temer as
the transition team. There is no woman among the candidates. Formality is required for employees to have access to government data and the CCBB building.
Among the elected are three future ministers from Bolsonaro: Paulo Guedes (economy), General Augusto Heleno (Defense) and Marcos Pontes (Science and Technology). The list includes two former PSL leaders, Gustavo Bebianno and Julian Lemos, and Marcos Aurélio Carvalho, partner and founder of AM4, the largest service provider for the captain's retired candidate.
The activities precede the arrival of the President elected in Brasilia. Bolsonaro arrives on Tuesday morning (6) with his allies. On Wednesday (7), he will meet with Temer and the chairman of the STF (Supreme Court) Dias Toffoli. It is expected to make government announcements on Wednesday.
Thematic groups defined in the Lorenzoni meeting present a first draft of the Esplanade structure. The elected president has not yet defined ministries and strives to combine some briefcases. This is the case for Agriculture and the Environment, in addition to Justice, Public Security and Transparency.
"The transition is always very intense, especially when there is a significant reduction in ministries, this transition will, of course, be quite elaborate," Heleno said.
The transition office team will be divided into the following areas: Regional Development; Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications; State modernization; Economy and Foreign Trade; Education, culture and sports; Justice, security and the fight against corruption; defense; infrastructure; Sustainable production, agriculture and the environment; and health and social care.
Candidates will receive salaries ranging from R $ 2,585 to R $ 16,215, with the exception of five, which have been designated without remuneration. Lorenzoni explained that the list will increase by the end of the week, completing the 50 posts Bolsonaro is entitled to by law.
