President-elect Luis Inácio Lula da Silva announced this Thursday (29), the complete list of his future ministers with Marina and Tebet.
President-elect Luis Inácio Lula da Silva announced on Thursday (29), the complete list of his future ministers. Three days before the inauguration, the president-elect closed the list of 37 ministries that will make up the new government.
Among the 16 names announced today, there were some surprises, besides the expected ones, such as Senator Simone Tebet (MDB-MS) for Planning and Budget and Marina Silva for the Environment. The “Centrão” (core party) will also be present in the future government with MDB, PSD and União Brasil.
Lula has dedicated the last week to finalizing the ministerial composition of his government. With a broad front around his name in the election, the future president also had to include the so-called “parliamentary quotas” in his government, to facilitate the relationship with Congress. In total, there will be nine parties represented that, together, will represent 262 deputies (51%) in the House of Representatives. In the Senate, the groups respond for 45 senators (55%), but not all of them will support the government.
Among the 37 names, Lula will have 11 women as heads of government portfolios, the previous record being Dilma Rousseff’s, with 10 women ministers.
