BRASÍLIA – It wasn’t just the mayor, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), and deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PL-SP) who were the only parliamentarians to watch the World Cup matches in Qatar up close. Ciro Nogueira, Ciro Nogueira, and deputies from the União Brasil went to the country to watch the World Cup games without asking permission from the position of Minister of the Civil House. In a record made on social networks, the minister of Jair Bolsonaro (PL) appears watching the game between Brazil and Switzerland at Stadium 974, in Doha, yesterday, 28. The main leader of the PP posed for a photo next to the vice president from União Brasil, Antonio Rueda, and from deputies Paulo Azi (União-BA) and José Rocha (União-BA).
wanted by Estadão, Paulo Azi, who is president of União Brasil in Bahia and coordinates the Council of Ethics at the Chamber, and José Rocha said they went to the Arab country with their own resources. Azi declared that he did not travel with Ciro Nogueira. “I met the minister here by chance,” he said. Asked if they traveled with public funds, if they were invited by private companies or if they paid to go to Qatar, Rueda and the minister of the Civil House did not respond to the report.
Spotted by streamer Casimiro Miguel’s live broadcast, Eduardo Bolsonaro also still hasn’t explained how he went to the event. The Chamber refuses to disclose whether President Bolsonaro’s son provided information on the dates and reason for the trip. The participation of the PL deputy in the Cup caused revolt among a portion of Bolsonaristas, who saw the gesture as disrespect while they mobilize coup acts against the election of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT).
Faced with demands for the trip at a time when supporters of the President of the Republic are taking the rain outside the barracks, Eduardo appeared this Tuesday, 29, in a video recorded in Qatar. He showed his hand full of pen drives and said that there were videos in English about the situation in Brazil. 🇧🇷
Nogueira’s party colleague, the mayor, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), also traveled to see the event. “At the invitation of the Parliament of Qatar, where the World Cup is taking place, we also spoke of the interest in deepening bilateral relations and dialogue between the two Parliaments”, declared the PP deputy from Alagoas. In a campaign to be reappointed to the command of the Chamber, Lira returns to Brasília this Tuesday, 29th, and will receive this week the announcement of support from parties such as PT, PSB and PL.
