Brazil: Finance advisor responsible for sports betting leaves Lula government

Manssur had been the target of attacks from Centrão, which wants to command the area, with an eye on revenue from betting regulations, which should raise between R$3 and R$6 billion this year, according to the Treasury's estimate. Manssur had shielded the sector, which angered Centrão parties.

The decision was taken last Friday (16), when the executive secretary of Finance, Dario Duringham, informed Mansur about his resignation.

After the publication of this post, the Ministry of Finance confirmed Manssur's departure. In a note, the department says that the dismissal was at the request of the advisor himself.

Understand what changes with new rules for online sports betting

Members of the Treasury claim that the sports betting area will not leave the portfolio – and that Manssur's goodbye is part of the ministry's reformulation, which will be announced this week.

Last Friday, the special advisor to the Executive Secretariat of the Ministry of Finance, José Francisco Cimino Manssur, was dismissed from his position upon request. Manssur was at the forefront of drafting the set of rules for regulating the fixed-odd betting sector in Brazil. The process was conducted throughout 2023 and concluded in December, after the approval of the new legislation in the National Congress and sanction by the Presidency of the Republic. The Ministry of Finance is grateful for the work provided by Francisco Manssur throughout this period.
