Lula said this a day after Bolsonaro changed the command of the company again.
After 40 days directing the company, Jose Mauro Ferreira Coelho was fired and Caio Mário Paes de Andrade, current secretary of the Ministry of Economy, was appointed in his place.
This is the third change of the direction of the company during the current government and the second this year.
Lula said in an interview with Radio Mais Brasil News that Bolsonaro has to stop talking nonsense; he has to stop saying he wants to punch the table. It’s not changing the president (of Petrobras), no.
He pointed out that if Petrobras is so important, let it assume the presidency of Petrobras. It needs courage. Because, in fact, its tail is tied to international prices.
For the founder of the Workers’ Party (PT), the former soldier can have a meeting with the National Energy Policy Council, bring Petrobras to the table. Bring Petrobras’ advice and decide that the price will not be dollarized, that we will not pay the international price, he added.
