The CEO of Vale, Murilo Ferreira, was probed to take the vacancy left by Grace Foster as CEO of Petrobras, according to speculations in the financial market. But, according to ministers, the appointment of the executive is risky because the market expects a less identified option with President Dilma Rousseff, as was done at the Finances Ministry. The former president of the mining company, Roger Agnelli, is also cited. Today (Friday 6), the new State board will be elected.
The São Paulo newspaper also reported that the executive indicated that is to accept, if formally invited by President Dilma Rousseff herself.
