Lula invites Camilo Santana to MEC – 12/15/2022 – Education

After the PT asked for command of one of the main windows on the Esplanade, the graduated president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT)invited the former governor and senator-elect, Camilo Santana (PT-CE), to assume the Ministry of Education.

The decision to accept the portfolio was not announced, formally, because it depended on a conversation with the current governor of Ceará, Isolde Celawhich took place this Thursday (15).

Former pedetista and today without a party, she was quoted to head Education, but should occupy the Basic Education Secretariat in the future government.

Izolda’s nomination was taken for granted, until Ceará’s PT claimed the portfolio. The Ceará bench gained strength after winning the state government in the first round, in the midst of an arm wrestling match with former governor Ciro Gomes (PDT).

Izolda even traveled to Brasilia for Lula’s graduation ceremony, until then as the most quoted for the role. On the eve, however, the president-elect heard restrictions in his name.

According to an ally of the former governor of Ceará, Lula’s invitation to Santana was made during a meeting on Monday (12), in Brasília. Federal deputy José Guimarães (PT-CE) and the elected governor of Ceará, Elmano de Freitas (PT) also followed the conversation.

Santana traveled this Thursday (15) to Fortaleza to meet with Izolda and discuss the succession at MEC.

Lula may still confirm new ministers in the coming days. PT allies say that part of the announcements should be made between Friday (16) and Sunday (18).

Some names head the bets for the ministries, like sociologist Nísia Trindade Lima, president of Fiocruz, for Healthand that of elected federal deputy Luiz Marinho (PT-SP) for Labor.

Attorney at the National Treasury, Jorge Messias is quoted for the AGU (Advocacy-General of the Union), while Vinícius Marques de Carvalho, former president of Cade (Administrative Council for Economic Defense), should take over the CGU (Controladoria-Geral da União) .

Also likely names for the Esplanada dos Ministérios are elected federal deputy Marina Silva, for the Ministry of the Environment, in addition to Alexandre Padilha (Institutional Relations) and Silvio Almeida (Human Rights).

Lula invited the president of Fiesp (Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo), Josué Gomes, to head the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (MDIC).

The petista has signaled to allies that the political seams and the vote on the Transition PEC in the Chamber should postpone the final announcement of the composition of the Esplanada dos Ministérios.

The plan is to concentrate announcements by political ministers after the proposal is approved.

The mayor, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), is also trying to gain allies in the first echelon of the future government, according to reports made to the Sheet🇧🇷 Him would have indicated that it would increase the margin of votes to approve the PEC in exchange for appointments to the head of Health, in addition to supporting the choice of the leader of União Brasil in the Chamber, Elmar Nascimento (BA), for the MME (Ministry of Mines and Energy).

Lira’s ideas collide with those of Lula, who wants to nominate the elected senator Renato Filho (MDB-AL), political opponent of the president of the Chamber, to the MME.

The political future of some of the president’s campaign allies, such as the senadora Simone Tebet (MDB-MS) and that of Márcio França (PSB), former governor of São Paulo.

França is quoted for the City portfolio or for the Ministry of Ports, which may arise from the dismemberment of the Ministry of Infrastructure.

Emedebista is, in turn, quoted for Social Development. Part of the PT sees the risk of handing over the position to Tebet and strengthen a rival for the 2026 presidential race.

The option for Camilo and Renan Filho goes against the strategy defined by Lula of keeping senators elected in Congress. This loophole could make room for the appointment of the former governor of Piauí Wellington Dias (PT), quoted to Planning.

Lula can still nominate senator Alexandre Silveira (PSD-MG) to command Infrastructure. Another name evaluated by the president with a degree in the political field is deputy Pedro Paulo (PSD-RJ), for the Ministry of Tourism.
