A much needed decision!
The Federal Court in Amapá ordered the removal of the board of directors of the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) and of the National Electric System Operator (ONS) because of the ongoing blackout that has hit the state for more than 2 weeks.
ONS is the body responsible for the management of the Brazilian electricity sector. Aneel, in turn, has among its duties to regulate and supervise the production, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity.
What happened in Amapá according to reports, supported by official documents, was due to a summary disregard for good management and inspection of the electricity sector.
The institutions involved (ONS and ANEEL), their directors and board members - in my opinion - should o be held accountable. And also its hierarchical superior the Ministry of Mines and Energy.
It will be a unique opportunity to "turn around" and start a new phase in Brazil, guided by professionalism and compliance with the established rules.
