President Jair Bolsonaro said Friday that approval of the pension reform in Congress could not take a year, stressing that it can be approved in the first half.
“I think so,” said Bolsonaro about the possibility of approval of the reform this semester. “It can not take a year to approve a reform, right? We will do everything we can to ensure that it is not dehydrated, but we respect Parliament’s autonomy if any change is made,” he added.
Subsequently, when asked about it in the Chamber only in the first half, the president also stressed that it is possible to approve it yes.
“I hope so, there is the interest of everyone, the mayor of the Chamber, Rodrigo Maia, the President of the Senate, also of many parliamentarians. We know that in some respect it is a bitter measure, it is a response that we have to give of a policy without much responsibility that has been made over the last few years, has to put a brake on the housekeeping now, even the military will enter their quota of sacrifice in this reform, “he said.
