As they have nothing more important to do, 50 deputies signed a Proposed Constitutional Amendment that gives Congress the power to overturn non-unanimous decisions of the Federal Supreme Court.
The proposal, already dubbed “PEC do Absurdo”, is something of a bolsonarista, of course: it was created by the former historic toucan, current bolsonarista root, Domingos Sávio, deputy for the PSDB of Minas (ask if he is linked to Aécio Neves) . But he even has a deputy from the PT who signed.
An atrocity of this kind is obviously unconstitutional, since it violates the principle of independence between the Powers: even if two-thirds of congressmen (quorum to change the Constitution) go completely crazy and approve it, the amendment will be immediately overturned by the Supreme Court itself.
As it is 100% unfeasible, a crazy PEC like this has only two uses: 1) to disrupt the political environment and 2) to upset the Supreme Court against Congress. That is, everything that Jair Bolsonaro and bolsonaristas want.
The question is what interests Centão, without which nothing is done in Congress.
Centrão has already made it clear that the riots caused by Bolsonarism do not bother him. But to disagree with the ministers of the Supreme is something different. After all, most of the members of Centrão are involved in criminal proceedings in the Supreme Court. Centrão has nothing to gain from this PEC, and a lot to lose.
In other words, the crazy PEC must have the same fate as the more than 100 impeachment proceedings against Bolsonaro: the bottom of Arthur Lira’s drawer. For all eternity.
