Rodrigo Maia says that Parliament is' stronger’ Bolsonaro due to the relationship with LegislativeAccording to the mayor, Congress has been strengthened because of the way the new management 'is political'.
The mayor, Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), He said on Saturday (13), in an interview, Congress has strengthened because of the way the president Jair Bolsonaro (PAGE) It makes policy, without a strong base of support for the government.
- The system is presidential. No presidential system, President is always the most powerful figure in politics. I think the way that the president understands the relationship with the legislature gives the impression that Parliament is stronger. Parliament is stronger just by the way that the president makes policy. When governments make coalition government, take legislative prerogatives. And the decision of the president to govern without a coalition forces us to regain our prerogative - said Maia.

In his assessment, only proposals of interest to the Brazilian state, as the reforms of the pension and tax, succeed.
In the interview, Maia said to have reached the "top" of his political career in charge of the presidency of the Chamber with the approval of the first round of the pension reform, completed late on Friday (12).
The mayor says he does not feel a "prime minister". for Maia, the speech he made in the voting session of pension reform was the most important point of his career.
- It was the most important speech of my life - he said.
