Scenario of the opera

André Mendonça’s holiday turned into a long opera. His appointment by Bolsonaro took place on July 13. CCJ chairman Davi Alcolumbre (DEM-AP) has since refused to introduce the investigation for various reasons. He used evasive tactics. For example, he justified that the election of the STF minister “deserved earlier by a time of political maturity”.

Alcolumbre campaigned openly against Mendonça. His favorite name is the Attorney General of the Republic of Augusto Aras. The case ended in the Supreme Court. Senators Alessandro Vieira (Cidadania-SE) and Jorge Kajuru (Podemos-GO) have asked the court to define Alcolumbre.

Under intense pressure, including by Senate President Rodrigo Pacheco (PSD-MG), Alcolumbre ended the renunciation. According to media reports to try around the struggle, Senator Bolsonaro received the chairman of the CCJ on Monday (29) at the Palácio do Planalto outside the official agenda. The head of government angered the evangelical leaders for not doing much for Mendonça since he was appointed. In September, Bolsonaro even announced that if Mendonça did not make it, “it would be another evangelism.”
