Also the second interim decision – which yesterday suspended the appointment of former President of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, to chief of staff – has been canceled. According to the media, Lula has been officially reappointed minister of Dilma Rousseff’s government.
According to State Service, courts throughout the country received over 50 orders to prevent Lula’s appointment and 13 more of them were presented to the Supreme Court. Even the State’s Attorney’s Office pointed out that the appeal has allowed Lula to regain his condition of minister of the Republic. Now, he can only be judged by the Supreme Federal Court (court of last instance in Brazil) and no longer by the ordinary courts.
On Friday, many Brazilian citizens who were convened by the left-wing Workers Party (PT) went out into the street of São Paulo to support the current president of Brazil Dilma Rousseff, and the former head of State Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. This event has happened exactly one week after many Brazilian citizens had gone out into the street to protest against Rousseff’s decision to make room for Lula in her government, allowing him to avoid arrest.
