Since taking office on February 1st, the parliamentarians elected in 2022 have already presented a series of proposals in the National Congress. The deputies presented 298 initiatives and the senators, 74, among bills, requirements and even requests for the repeal of presidential decrees – such as the decree of January 1st, as soon as Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) took office as President of the Republic and who restricted access to weapons. Opposition parliamentarians try to articulate the overthrow of this measure, as well as intend to prevent the Chief Executive from allowing the BNDES to make loans to carry out works in other countries, as was already considered by Lula during the trip he made to Argentina.

In addition, there is a project also asking to review the mandatory military enlistment for men when they turn 18. And also the return of daylight saving time. Another project presented suggests the end of party loyalty. If approved, deputies will be able to disaffiliate from theirs without giving justification. There are also calls for the creation of new permanent committees in the House and Senate. The latter was even a promise by the mayor, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), who intends to engage smaller parties. On the list are commissions such as the Defense of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Agrarian Development and Family Farming. Senator Damares Alves (PRB-DF) asked for the opening of a new commission to assist children and adolescents. Senator Nelsinho Trad (PSD-MS) presented the highest number of suggestions, eight. Among them, he suggests that the election for positions on the board of directors take place in an open manner.
