The session of reading the new version of the pension reform bill presented by the Presidency begins on Thursday (14.dez) in the  Chamber of Deputies’ plenary.

The government is having difficulty in gathering the number of votes needed to get the reform approval. Until Wednesday it had estimated to have 278 favorable votes. If it does not meet the minimum necessary of 308 deputies to approve the project, President Michel Temer should postpone to February the voting of the matter in the Chamber of Deputies.
Although the Government leader in the Senate, Romero Juca,  made on Wednesday a call to postponing the vote to February, the Chamber’s chairman Rodrigo Maia  said he is still working on the possibility of holding a vote in Brazil’s lower house of Congress next week.
