Tereza Cristina (DEM-MS), 64, will be the first female minister of government Jair Bolsonaro. The President was elected to confirm the appointment of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture in his social network. Confirmation has already been made by federal representative Alceu Moreira (MDB-RS). According to him, the map will not be associated with the Ministry of Environmental Protection, whose owner will be elected from the presidents of the selected and "homologated" ruralist group. According to Moreira, the Environment Minister will have a "differentiated profile".
During a meeting with Jairo Bolsonar, the Ruralist Group appointed Terez Cristina as Minister of Agriculture. The nomination was made by a group of 20 members of the Parliamentary Agricultural and Livestock Front (FPA), at a meeting in Brazil's Cultural Center (CCBB), Brazil, where the State Transition Office operates. The Ruralist Party in the National Congress gathers around 260 parliamentarians.
