PSL president, Government Party, congressman-elect Luciano Bivar said on Wednesday that the party – including President Jair Bolsonaro – decided to support the re-election of the Chairman of the Representative Board, Rodrigo Maia, in exchange for supporting the campaign agenda of the new president in Congress and endorsing members of the party commanding strategic commissions, such as the Constitution and Justice.
“We had a conversation with myself, our party leader, delegate Waldir, and he (Rodrigo Maia) and he undertook to support all the reforms we are going to face,“ Bivar told Reuters on a meeting he had this morning.

The PSL even rehearsed a candidacy for the House’s command, but chose to back down and seek a composition in the House to create a base of support for the new president.
