Candidate for reelection, President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) said on Wednesday (17) that the government has not yet defined the percentage of the salary readjustment for federal civil servants in 2023, but that the measure is guaranteed.
“I want to tell the federal public servants that they will have a readjustment next year. We haven’t defined the percentage yet. As well as we will have career restructuring”, said the reelection candidate at an event with mayors at the Royal Tulip Hotel, in Brasília.
Bolsonaro first promised, still in 2021, a specific readjustment for police officers linked to the Ministry of Justice (Federal Police, Federal Highway Police and Federal Criminal Police). But he backed down in the face of pressure from other federal servants, who would be excluded, and even said that he would give a linear readjustment of 5% for the entire Executive in 2022 – but he also broke his promise.
By sanctioning the Budget Guidelines Law (LDO) of 2023, the president vetoed not only a specific readjustment to police officers linked to the Ministry of Justice next year, but also the restructuring of the careers of the Brazilian Intelligence Agency (Abin).
The Ministry of Economy’s veto suggestion for the vetoes said that the government’s original proposal for the 2023 LDO already provided for authorization for readjustments and restructuring of careers for “the entire public administration, which, of course, includes the aforementioned bodies. ”.
After enacting the 2023 LDO, the government now has until the end of the month to submit next year’s Annual Budget Bill (PLOA) to Congress. According to the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo, the government has not yet defined the amount expected for Auxílio Brasil, despite the short deadline for finalizing the budget.
