Public Officials Ousted from Public Service Doubled Over Course of Lula’s Eight Years

Globo reported today that the number of public officials ousted from the public service over the course of President Lula da Silva’s administrations (2002-2010) doubled. In 2003 the number of public officials punished tallied 264 and in 2010 this total had doubled to 521. Globo has produced a list of President Dilma Rousseff campaign pledges. It lists “fighting corruption” as one of the promises of the Dilma administration, and “ensuring greater transparency through state reform,” but it does not list the passage of the access to information law now awaiting approval in the Senate.

  • who is replacing these “punished” individuals? It would be interesting to know how many party retainers have found jobs as a result.
