Government supports Gas Marco, says MME secretary

On Tuesday (29), the executive secretary of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), Marisete Pereira, said the government is fully aligned with the new gas framework. The text, which has aroused antagonism in opposition to the government, was approved by the House of Representatives and now awaits evaluation in the Senate. According to her, there are demands from some agents in the sector for adjustments in the project, but this would be dealt with in a second moment with the executive branch.

The secretary also said that another priority of the Ministry is the approval of proposal in the electricity sector, which is also being processed in the Senate. In addition, he said that another focus of the government is the approval in Congress of a project for privatization of Eletrobras, still no date to occur.
