Lira talks about privatizing Petrobras ‘or tough measures’ will be taken

According to Lira, if the government ceases to be the majority shareholder, it would “take this responsibility for Petrobras’ lack of sensitivity off its shoulders”.

The Speaker of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), evaluated this Friday, 27th, that it would be appropriate to start the process of privatization gives Petrobras, suggested that the government sell the participation of the company’s shares under the control of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) and leave the controlling interest in the oil company. “It (the government) could sell the shares it has in BNDES, around 14%, and it would no longer hold the majority”, said the president of the Chamber during an interview with Rádio Bandeirantes.

Lira suggested that the operation be carried out by a bill, or after “further discussion”. “Either we privatize this company, or we take tougher measures.”

For the deputy, the company protects itself “in the fact that the government has a majority in order not to pay for the wear and tear of its inaction, of its lack of sensitivity”.

According to Lira, if the government ceases to be the majority shareholder, it would “take this responsibility for Petrobras’ lack of sensitivity off its shoulders,” he said.

On the rise in fuel prices, the mayor again cited examples of oil companies that, according to him, “have been sensitive enough to give up part of their abusive profits to either pay for a direct subsidy, or freeze their prices, or do some direct act for the population”.
