Governors will react if Bolsonaro decrees decree against social isolation
In conflict with the other powers of the Republic, state governors, the overwhelming majority of the nation, international organizations and governments around the world, Bolsonaro on Sunday threatened to issue a decree to compel people to return to the streets and their normal activities , in an emergency situation for the advancement of the coronavirus epidemic, which spreads death. Governors say they will react against the eventual decree of the occupant of the Planalto Palace
247 – State governors will sue Justice if Jair Bolsonaro issues a decree to free up the functioning of sectors of the economy and break social isolation, considered the most important preventive measure by doctors, the World Health Organization, a UN body, and the Ministry of Health itself.
Governors are indignant at the attitude of Bolsonaro, who on Sunday (29) contradicted the guidance of the Ministry of Health and circulated in Brasília greeting supporters.
The assessment made in a WhatsApp group with governors in the Northeast is that Bolsonaro continues to adopt extremist attitudes instead of dialoguing and taking the lead in the national fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
The governor of Bahia, Rui Costa, said that the states will continue to sue the courts if any government measure puts the population at risk.
The governors of Pará, Helder Barbalho (MDB), Pernambuco, Paulo Câmara, Rio de Janeiro, Wilson Witzel, Maranhão, Flávio Dino and Espírito Santo, Renato Casagrande, among others, responded to Bolsonaro’s threats and attitudes.
