President renews Rede Globo, Band and Record concessions

President Jair Bolsonaro issued this Tuesday (20) a decree that renews, for 15 years, starting in October 2022, the television concessions, in digital technology, of Rede Globo (Globo Comunicação e Participações SA), in the cities of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasília, Belo Horizonte and Recife. The concessions of Rádio e Televisão Bandeirantes de Minas Gerais Ltda., in the municipality of Belo Horizonte, and Rádio e Televisão Record SA, in the municipality of São Paulo, were also renewed for the same period.

According to a statement issued by the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic, the broadcasters met a series of requirements and both the technical area and the Legal Consultancy of the Ministry of Communications were in favor of grant renewals. According to the Federal Constitution, it is up to the Executive Power to analyze the granting and renewal of broadcasting licenses, which are then submitted to the National Congress, which decides on the requests. The non-renewal of grants depends on the vote of at least two-fifths of the parliamentarians in the National Congress (Senate and Chamber of Deputies), in roll call voting.

The federal government did not inform which channels the grants were no longer granted.

For this reason, it is imperative to deconstruct the respective acts of granting through the issuance of decrees to make previous decrees null and void”, informed the Presidency of the Republic.
