Gilmar: não podemos pensar em substituir políticos por juízes ou promotores

CARLOS HUMBERTO STF

O presidente do Tribunal Superior Eleitoral (TSE), Gilmar Mendes, afirmou nesta terça-feira, 5, que não se deve pensar que todos os políticos são corruptos.

Fux vai comandar o tribunal do início de fevereiro até o dia 15 de agosto do próximo ano, isto é, durante todo o período da pré-campanha de 2018. A corte sempre é presidida por um ministro do STF, geralmente aquele que está há mais tempo no tribunal eleitoral. Na mesma sessão, Rosa Weber foi eleita vice-presidente do TSE. "Tenho a espinhosa missão de substituir duas excepcionais gestões, a do ministro (Dias) Toffoli e a do ministro Gilmar (Mendes), e creio em Deus que estarei à altura do exercício dessa missão", disse Fux, logo após o resultado da votação. O mandato do ministro Gilmar Mendes, hoje à frente da corte, acaba em 6 de fevereiro.

Para o ministro, a reforma política não alcançou todos os objetivos esperados, mas promoveu avanços "significativos" em relação a legislação eleitoral, como a adoção da cláusula de barreira e o fim das coligações proporcionais a partir das eleições de 2020.

O TSE é formado por, no mínimo, sete ministros. Fux está no TSE desde 2014. Três ministros são do STF, um dos quais será o presidente da Corte, dois ministros do Superior Tribunal de Justiça (STJ), um dos quais será o corregedor-geral da Justiça Eleitoral, e dois juristas vindos da classe dos advogados, nomeados pelo presidente da República. O ministro faz parte do STF desde março de 2011. Ele vai substituir o ministro Gilmar Mendes no comando do tribunal. Dos 7 integrantes do Tribunal, 6 votaram em Fux. "Todos nós estamos absolutamente tranquilos de que o tribunal estará em boas mãos".

Ele também integra a Academia Brasileira de Letras Jurídicas, é professor titular de Processo Civil da Faculdade de Direito da UERJ e autor de diversas obras de Direito Processual Civil e Constitucional.
