CPI on Abuse of Power may be opened in the Chamber of Deputies (Foto Assessoria)

Federal deputies Tereza Cristina (PP), who takes a seat in the Senate in 2023, and Luiz Ovando (PL), re-elected, signed a request for the opening of a CPI on Abuse of Authority in the Federal Chamber. The Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry intends to investigate possible excessive use of power committed by the STF (Federal Supreme Court) and TSE (Superior Electoral Court) and is authored by Marcel Van Hattem (Novo) deputy for Rio Grande do Sul.

Federal deputy Dagoberto Nogueira (PSDB) said that he was approached to sign the application, but he is against opening the CPI. “It’s not even possible to discuss (the CPI). What is happening is a lack of sanity, these people have lost track. I’m sure that nobody here will pay attention to this”, he said.

Marcel published on Twitter a list with the names of the 127 parliamentarians who signed the application and said that there are only 44 left to be able to set up the commission. On the internet, he asked his followers to ask “his deputies” to join the idea and help get the investigation off the ground.

As Ovando informed through a press office, the articulation is for the number to be reached this Wednesday (23), “taking advantage of the fact that all parliamentarians are in Brasília”. Hattem began to gather support this Tuesday (22nd) and is based on three situations in which both Courts abused their power.

These being: search and seizure of the addresses of businessmen who shared messages in applications, determination of blocking the accounts of 43 people and companies suspected of financing demonstrations against the result of the polls, in addition to alleged censorship of parliamentarians, economist Marco Cintra, the production company Brasil Paralelo, the TV channel Jovem Pan and the newspaper Gazeta do Povo.

The explanation was given by him in a video released on Youtube. “The Judiciary has repeatedly overstepped its functions, with arbitrary decisions, including legislating, in clear interference with the work of Parliament, blocking accounts and censoring citizens without due process,” he said in the recording.

The CPI, if it is indeed open, will have 27 members and 120 days to investigate the facts and complete the work. It is worth remembering that Ovando was re-elected to the Federal Chamber for Mato Grosso do Sul and Tereza Cristina takes a seat in the Senate next year.

O Campo Grande News got in touch with all the other deputies who currently hold a mandate, but until the publication of this report, there was no response.
