The truth is that the Regulations and the Constitution are silent on the censorship of the President of the Assembly of the Republic, therefore, if he remains silent, it is allowed”, he argued, accusing the parties of being “accomplices” in an “abuse of power” by Santos Silva.

Santos Silva asked the Constitutional Affairs Commission to issue an opinion “on constitutional and regulatory compliance” with the Chega draft resolution, “specifically for the purposes of its admissibility” and justified this decision “due to the doubts raised by the services of the Assembly but also because of the very deep and very complex doubts” raised “at the ethical-political level, not because of this draft resolution in particular, but because of the precedent it may create.”

The writing of the opinion was attributed to the PAN after the PSD asked for an excuse to do so, refusing to feed any political “folklore”, and the Liberal Initiative also refused to “do the work that the PSD should do”. .
