247 – Candidate Marcelo Freixo (PSB), who is running for governor of Rio de Janeiro, filed a lawsuit in the Superior Electoral Court against his main opponent, Governor Cláudio Castro (PL), for buying political support.

The PSB candidate asks the Electoral Justice to investigate whether the public money committed to Ceperj, to support a payroll with more than 20,000 secret positions (the so-called “secret budget” in Rio de Janeiro), was intended to purchase political support.

“In the last 12 (twelve) months, more than BRL 310,000,000.00 (three hundred and ten million reais) were committed to CEPERJ to execute these nebulous projects and programs, not regulated by law, nor properly provided for in the budget legislation” , says Freixo in the lawsuit.

By means of a decree, in March, the governor of Rio changed the objectives and activities of Ceperj, and while in 2020 the investment in the agency was R$ 19.8 million, in 2022, until then, the governor has already committed R$ 235 million in the organ.

According to Freixo, the Castro government also created a series of social projects subordinate to the agency, in which the alleged employees had no legal ties to government initiatives and received their salaries in cash at the cash register.

Therefore, the PSB candidate asks the TSE to notify the State Court of Auditors to assist in the investigations. According to him, there are indications of a crime of abuse of political power by Castro.
