The leaders of the three branches of Brazil’s government met Tuesday, pledging themselves to an inter-governmental pact in favor of economic reforms and growth, top presidential adviser Onyz Lorenzoni told reporters following the meeting. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the presiding officers of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies met with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Lorenzoni said the meeting resulted in an agreement to sign a formal pact in June pledging all three branches of government to key economic reforms, including an overhaul of the nation’s bankrupt social security system. “The leaders agreed on a dialog in favor of Brazil,” said Lorenzoni. He said the pact will focus on measures and actions designed “to promote growth, jobs and income.” A s weeping social security bill, presented by the administration, is currently before Congress. Chamber of Deputies Speaker Rodrigo Maia said he will push for approval by the lower house before the end of June.
