Brazil's Senate head says Rio military intervention blocks pension vote

According to Mr. Marun, the administration arrived at the conclusion that there were no legal grounds to revoke the decree establishing a federal intervention in Rio - the decree rules out the possibility of amending the constitution, which pension reform would require. "Shortly, by next week or the one after at the latest, I want to create the special Ministry of Public Security, which will coordinate public security nationwide, obviously without interfering with the capacities of each federated state", Temer told reporters at a press conference.

Temer, who is still chasing favorable votes for the pension reform bill, said that he would temporarily suspend the intervention in Rio de Janeiro to vote on the legislation if the government garners enough support for it.

"We don't have the votes". That was the government's deadline for passing the bill before lawmakers turned their attention to securing their seats in the October general election.

Earlier in the day, Secretary of Government Carlos Marun stated that the pension reform bill had been put on hold and that it would only be reintroduced in November at the earliest. Generous pension benefits and early retirement have turned social security into the main driver of a deficit that cost Brazil its investment grade.

"There will be a vote on the pension reform? No".

President Michel Temer spoke briefly Saturday in Rio de Janeiro after talking to local authorities about the implementation of a decree that has placed the military in charge of the state's security operations amid a spike in violent crime.
