“Democracy is a non-negotiable value. Only through the dialogue that she favors will we be able to prioritize economic growth with a reduction in our inequalities and social setbacks that today impose suffering and hopelessness for a significant part of the Brazilian population,” reads a fragment of the letter.

Baptized as the Charter of Brasilia, the document also announces the creation of the Federation Council, which will be made up of representatives of the Union, states and municipalities.

The objective of this board, according to the text, is “to define a permanent agenda for dialogue and agreement around issues defined as priorities by the federated entities.”

It also alludes to the shared management of public resources for regional development actions.

In this sense, he cites unemployment, inflation, hunger and poverty as problems to be overcome by the federal, state and municipal governments.

The letter was released by the Planalto Palace, the seat of the Executive Power, after Lula’s meeting with the governors, who also claim to have a commitment to the institutional and social stability of the country.

Such content was published 19 days after the invasions and vandalism perpetrated on January 8 by radical supporters of the defeated president Jair Bolsonaro at the headquarters of the National Congress, the Federal Supreme Court and Planalto.

In the first minutes of the meeting with the state authorities, Lula, along with Vice President Geraldo Alckmin and other government ministers, stated that the public power has to guarantee the people that the spread of hate has ended.

“We are going to show the Brazilian people that hate has ended. That what happened on January 8 (invasion and depredation of the headquarters of the three powers in Brasilia) will not be repeated,” said the founder of the Workers’ Party.

He predicted the recovery of democracy, since its essence is dialogue, “as long as it does not obstruct the right of the other to speak. That is why I say that Brazil is going to return to normality”, he pointed out.

In addition to the issue of the Tax on the Circulation of Merchandise, each state governor indicated in the meeting with the president three local projects and one of regional importance.
