To prevent Michel Temer and the future president of the Republic, who will occupy the position in January 2019, from being accused of a crime of liability, the ruling party and the economic team are working on a proposed amendment to the constitution to suspend the “rule of gold “-, which prevents the Administration from issuing debt in volume greater than investments.

The proposal was discussed on Thursday morning at a meeting between the president of the Chamber, Rodrigo Maia, from Rio de Janeiro, and the finance minister, Henrique Meirelles, both candidates for the presidency, in addition to the planning ministers, Dyogo Oliveira and Alexandre Baldy, Minister of Cities.

The crime of liability for unauthorized expenses was the one that gave support to the impeachment process against Dilma Rousseff. This is the risk that Temer seeks to avoid.
