Opposition parties continue to press for the opening of the impeachment process against governor Ibaneis Rocha (MDB), especially after the dissemination of cell phone messages in which the emedebista classified the situation in Brasília as calm on the eve of the anti-democratic acts.
Ibaneis was removed the day after the acts of January 8, by a decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), for possible consent with what happened.
On the same day of removal PSOL, Rede, PT, unions and others filed an impeachment request against Ibaneis in the Legislative Chamber of the Federal District (CLDF). These parties also proposed a CPI to investigate anti-democratic acts in the CLDF, which has already been installed and will be chaired by Deputy Chico Vigilante (PT).
For one of the authors of the impeachment request, district deputy Fábio Félix (PSOL) the messages released show a level of “negligence” and “lack of engagement” by the then head of the Executive. “The messages appear that the governor and part of the government underestimated the size of the violent action on January 8th and that there was no commitment from the governor’s office proportional to the size of the crisis” added Fabio.

The leader of the opposition in the CLDF, Gabriel Magno (PT), draws attention to the act of the governor of appointing former Bolsonarist minister Anderson Torres for Public Security, after he was lenient with the coup camps and the attempt to invade the building of the Federal Police in the DF on December 12.
“The removal was a correct decision taken by the Justice at a time of serious crisis provoked by the terrorist acts of the 8th and by all the permissiveness demonstrated” added the PT.
With the removal of Ibaneis, vice-governor Celina Leal (PP) took over the government, who has a profile of great proximity to the governor and former president Jair Bolsonaro (PL). After a month of federal intervention in public security, implemented by President Lula (PT) on the day of the acts, Ricardo Cappelli returned to the Ministry of Justice and the governor appointed Sandro Avelar to the position.
According to Michelle Fernandez, a professor and researcher at the Institute of Political Sciences at the University of Brasília (Ipol/UnB), Ibaneis’ removal and Celina’s entry did not significantly alter the functioning of the DF government. “Apparently public policies in the DF have been working as they used to, in a certain normality” said Michelle, adding that “the governor has been carrying out what was being planned by this current administration”.
