“This is an own goal by the Government,” said Leal, adding that “I asked the minister (Carolina Toha), in the meeting that we had at noon, to explain to me whether or not this is going to be the case. He told me that it is an issue that was being studied, that the President had expressed it in his campaign, that it was a commitment. I asked him to clear it.”
