Federal deputy Arthur Lira (PP-AL), president of the Chamber of Deputies, confirmed the one-week extension of the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPI) investigating the Landless Workers Movement (MST). Therefore, the end of the group’s work will be on September 21st.
Lira’s measure will prevent the CPI rapporteur, deputy Ricardo Salles (PL-SP), from suffering a humiliating defeat, as there was a risk that the commission’s work would be closed without a final report.

This is because the reading of the report was scheduled for this Thursday (14), the commission’s last day of operation. There was the possibility that a parliamentarian would request a view of the document for consideration. If this happened, voting on the report would be made impossible and the CPI would end without an official record of the work, which lasted 120 days.
With the new deadline established, the reading of the report should be scheduled for next Tuesday (19) and parliamentarians would use the 20th and 21st to discuss and vote on the document.

With the correlation of unfavorable internal forces, Salles is likely to lose a possible vote to approve the report. Therefore, Bolsonaro supporters are working together to transform points in the final document into bills, so that they can be considered by the House plenary.
