The Minister of Tourism, Celso Sabino, takes office in a ceremony held on the morning of this Thursday, 3rd, in the Noble Hall of the Palácio do Planalto, in Brasília (DF). The event is scheduled to take place at 11am. On that occasion, the decree establishing the new National Tourism Council (CNT) will also be signed....

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) formalized the appointment of Sabino to the position in publication in the Official Gazette of the Union (DOU) on July 14, making the departure of the former head of the department official Daniela Carneiro, who returned to her mandate as federal deputy.

The minister already started work on Tourism on the 17th, but was awaiting the inauguration event with the end of the parliamentary recess in Congress.

Sabino and Carneiro are affiliated with União Brasil, but Daniela asked the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) to disaffiliate from the party in April. This caused her to lose support from the party. Given this, the party nominated Sabino as a replacement to take over the role.

Who is Celso Sabino

Federal Deputy for Pará, Celso Sabino de Oliveira was born in Belém, on August 29, 1978. Sabino is a former tucano, evangelical, ally of the president of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), and was side by side with Jair Bolsonaro (PL) during the four years of his administration.

Graduated in administration and law, he has a postgraduate degree in Controllership, Auditing and Financial Management and a doctorate in Legal and Social Sciences. Sabino only began his public career in 2011, at the age of 44, when he was elected alternate state deputy in Belém, for the former PR.
