The decree signed by Lula determines that public security in the Federal District is the responsibility of the federal government and appoints the executive secretary of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, Ricardo Cappelli, as controller, according to the act signed by the president.

“The president of the Federal Senate, using his powers (…) makes it known that the National Congress is convened extraordinarily, without payment of per diem, during the period necessary to consider the Decree”, ordered by Lula to “put an end to the serious compromise of public order, in the terms indicated,'” Pacheco wrote in the letter sent to the senators.

The Brazilian Federal Constitution establishes that, even in the case of a decree, that is, an act signed by the President of the Republic, corresponds to the National Congress to approve the state of federal intervention. This is the second time that the federal government has imposed such a measure.
