Petrobras president Pedro Parente has told reporters that assuming Eliseu Padilha’s place as the president’s Chief of Staff is not in his plans. The idea has been aired in Brasilia by people for whom the post should be occupied by someone with an executive profile, not a political one.
Forget me. Parente replies that the best contribution he can make to the government of Michel Temer is to stay as head of Petrobras. Parente was Chief of Staff during the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, from 1999 to 2002.
