Bolsonaro Intends to Subsidize Church Electricity Bills

The congressional evangelical bench is today the main basis of support of the government, and Bolsonaro has been meeting its demands since he took office.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL -  President Jair Bolsonaro intends to implement an electricity bill subsidy for large religious temples. At his request, a draft decree was drafted by the Ministry of Mines and Energy and sent to the Ministry of Economy, but the measure caused strong friction in the government.

The economic team rejects the measure, which goes against the agenda of Minister Paulo Guedes, known for advocating the reduction of benefits of this type. The Ministry of Mines and Energy confirmed that the matter is being assessed.
