However, Lewandowski considered that the proposal to introduce the suspension into the Constitution still needs to be presented in detail to the President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT). “We are measuring, so to speak, the extent of acceptance of these ideas, and we are talking to some parliamentarians. We have theoretically presented the idea to the President of the Republic, who will decide the suitability and opportunity of this matter.”

The Minister also stressed that the proposal would not detract from the independence of the states responsible for civil and military police, as well as the management of the vast majority of prisons.

“The Conservatives have nothing to lose in terms of independence in relation to public safety. “What we understand is that it is necessary for the Federation to have some general guidelines that can be met by federal entities, including municipalities in these federal entities, so that federal funds can be allocated within a common goal.”
