The Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies , in its first meeting under new management this Thursday (2/2), decided to request studies to adopt voting sessions in a hybrid format – face-to-face and remote – with the mandatory presence of deputies who are not from the risk group.

The House sessions will return next Tuesday (2/2).

There will be a meeting of the college of leaders on Thursday, at 15 h, when the hammer must be hit. The criteria adopted and the bureaucratic act – Bureau Act or draft resolution – are due to be presented next Tuesday. Until then, there was no obligation to register the presence of deputies in the House.

The President of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), asked the technical advisory of the House to study the criteria to be adopted to increase the participation of parliamentarians in the plenary, the return of commissions and public hearings, but “in a way responsible ”, to avoid contagion of the new coronavirus .

In principle, meetings and votes on the House’s permanent commissions would be held virtually, allowing the presence of a limited number of people, while public hearings would be conducted entirely on the virtual model.

According to deputy André de Paula (PSD-PE), 2nd vice-president, the objective is to have the presence of more parliamentarians in the plenary, in a safe way, and to expand the debate of the House. “Members of the risk group will be able to vote remotely,” he said.
