Bolsonaro officializes André Mendonça's nomination for STF vacancy

Nomination was published in the Official Gazette, but still pending Senate approval

The appointment of the head of the Attorney General's Office, André Mendonça, to the Federal Supreme Court is now official. The choice of president Jair Bolsonaro (no party) was published this Tuesday (13) in the Official Gazette.

The name of the head of the AGU still needs to be approved by the Senate to assume the vacancy opened in the STF with the retirement of Marco Aurélio Mello.

“With the submission of my name to the Federal Senate, I thank God for life and for this possibility of serving my country; to my family, for their mutual love; to President Jair Bolsonaro, for his confidence; to evangelical leaders, parliamentarians, friends and everyone who has supported me”, Mendonça registered on Twitter.

“I place myself at the disposal of the Federal Senate. I will respectfully seek contact with all members, who have a high mission to evaluate my name. Finally, to the Brazilian people, I reaffirm my commitment to the Constitution and the Democratic Rule of Law. God bless our country,” he added.

Born in Santos (SP), André Mendonça has been a lawyer for the Union since 2000. He became the general inspector of the body at a time when, due to irregularities discovered, many lawyers were fired. Still, the possible new STF minister says he has made no enemies there.

He was appointed to head the Federal Attorney General's Office in 2019. André Mendonça held the position for about a year until he was chosen by Jair Bolsonaro to take the place of Sérgio Moro, as Minister of Justice.

In March 2021, with the indication of the former Federal Police delegate and current head of the portfolio, Anderson Torres, André Mendonça returned to the AGU.

Since the beginning of the government, it was the name to take a seat on the STF. He never took part in President Bolsonaro's campaign, and claims that he only met him when he was nominated.

Bolsonaro has always said that one of his STF nominees would be someone "terribly evangelical". Mendonça is pastor of a Presbyterian Church.

Like AGU, he defended, for example, the constitutionality of imprisonment after conviction in the second instance, that is, imprisonment before all of the defendant's remedies are exhausted.

In the pandemic, attention was drawn to his performance in the trial that questioned a decree in the state of São Paulo, which restricted the opening of religious temples as a measure to fight the pandemic.

By 9 to 2, the ministers understood that the decree did not harm religious freedom and, at the judgment, the AGU said that "Christians would be willing to die to guarantee freedom".

André Mendonça is 48 years old, was also a lawyer with a public examination at Petrobras and has a Doctor and Master's Degree in Law the University of Salamanca, in Spain.
