On the second day of voting for the State Budget for 2023, two species of stingrays and sharks won: live, which, after the proposal of the PAN, approved by the PS, will be eligible for a national action plan for the bearing and conservation of the species. ; and those of parliament that grow in size by eating the crustaceans that PS gives them.

On the side of the sharks, the PS creates a budget that serves it, getting some amendment proposals approved by the opposition parties, but leaving little wiggle room. PS is the owner and owner of these parliamentary waters, where other fish go. PAN and Livre, which complement the socialist-approved amendment proposals, guarantee a place in this game, hoping that in the end it will at least maintain its abstention. The PAN and Livre lines take their place, while the other parties have some (small) wins of little value and low budgetary impact – on the second day it was IL and PSD.

Bloco and PCP were at zero on this second day, as was Chega, which continues on its way to the next budget without proposals – Andre Ventura even said that if this happens in the next budget, instead of 500 proposals, he will submit 600 or 700 proposals. (Mariana Mortagua, in the middle of the vote, even asked the president of the Budget and Finance Commission to piece together Chega’s proposals, because they are all the same – “increases in volume, but not in content”).

So on the second day, PAN and Livre came out with a lot of approved proposals – even if they had some setbacks in symbolic measures, but also in last-minute PS vote changes (for example, PAN saw it approved, but later ended refusal to publicly release all court decisions) – and as a glimpse of reaching the finish line with a few more victories. It was from these parties that the postponements of the fourth and fifth votes were rescheduled, exposing some of the behind-the-scenes negotiations. Those from PAN were moved to Wednesday, and those from Livre (including the symbolic 3C program) to Thursday, the last day of specialty voting.
