    Sachsida rebuts transition government: "It was PT's measures that almost broke the electricity sector

    December 9, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The Minister of Mines and Energy, Adolfo Sachsida, refuted on Thursday (8) criticism made by the transition team of Lula's government to the current government, saying that it was the PT governments that "almost broke" Petrobras and the electricity sector.

      "The transition team spoke of 'cursed heritage' in the Ministry of Mines and Energy. Let's clarify: the PT measures, led by former president Dilma, almost broke the energy sector. The biggest cursed inheritance in the sector was generated by the PT itself. I hope they have learned," the minister tweeted.

      On the same day, the technical group of Mines and Energy, led by Mauricio Tolmasquim, said that the Bolsonaro administration left a bill of R$ 500 billion to be paid in the coming years by consumers. The main impact, they said, is one of the consequences of the privatization of Eletrobras, with a cost of R$ 368 billion in the bills.

      "They almost broke Petrobras. They almost broke the electricity sector. They generated a drop in GDP worse than a pandemic and a war put together, and now they come to talk about herança maldita.... Shame on you. You are getting a tidy country ready to grow in a sustainable way," added Sachsida.
