São Paulo, 22 - Personal problems between the speaker of the Brazilian House of Representatives Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ) and the government speaker Vitor Hugo (PSL-GO) came to the fore yesterday during a meeting of leaders in Brasília. Both, however, claimed that this situation should not influence how they relate institutionally. According to Vitor Hugo, at the end of the leaders meeting held yesterday afternoon, Maia told him that he does not want to have personal ties with him and that he felt attacked by criticisms made by the government speaker to the meetings that took place in Maia's official residence. Maia also allegedly accused Vitor Hugo of attacking Parliament through a cartoon sent to a PSL group on Whatsapp. Last night, Maia affirmed that he intends to vote on the pension reform as of June, implying that the misunderstandings with Vitor Hugo did not change the bill's timeline. "We are not worried about the government leader or the government, we are concerned about the Brazilian people. We have now seen that unemployment and inequalities are increasing, and Brazil's prospect of growth has dropped", Maia told the House's official news agency. Today, in his Twitter account, Vitor Hugo said that he had tried in every way but "unsuccessfully" to approach Maia since the beginning of his term and that during the leaders meeting yesterday he reinforced the criticism of the meetings of politicians in the speaker's official residence. The representative also said that he had stated at the meeting that he wants to have a functional relationship with Maia rather than a personal one, and denied the claims that he would have attacked Congress.
