Cristiane Brasil Francisco, commonly known as Cristiane Brasil (born 21 December 1973), is a Brazilian lawyer and politician. Member of the Brazilian Labor Party (PTB), is federal deputy and was nominated as Minister of Labor in January 2018,[2] but the Federal Justice suspended the take up of office.[3][4][5]


Born in Petrópolis, mountain region of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Cristiane Brasil graduated in Law in the Catholic University of Petrópolis.[6] In 2005, took office as city councillor for the first time, being reelected for two more terms. In 2009, took office as City Special Secretary of Healthy Aging and Life Quality of Rio de Janeiro. In the 2014 state elections, was elected federal deputy with 81,817 votes.[7]

She voted favorable to the impeachment proceedings against Dilma Rousseff,[8] to the Bill of Ceiling of Public Spendings and the outsourcing for all activities,[9][10] and to the Labor Reform.[11] On August and October 2017, Cristiane voted to reject two complaint from the former Prosecutor General Rodrigo Janot against president Michel Temer, successfully archiving both.[12][13]

Cristiane was nominated by president Temer to the Ministry of Employment after the resignation of Ronaldo Nogueira, but Justice forbade her to assume.[2] On 20 January, Justice Humberto Martins, Deputy Chief Justice of the Superior Court of Justice, granted an injunction from the Attorney General of the Union Grace Mendonça, authorizing Brasil's inauguration, scheduled for 22 January 2018.[14] In the late night of 22 January, Chief Justice of the Supreme Federal Court Cármen Lúcia granted a petition from Labor Independent Lawyers Movement (MATI), suspending, again, her inauguration.[1]
