Police left out of Brazil pension reform for political reasons

SAO PAULO, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Brazil’s military police and firefighters were excluded from a proposed pension reform in recent days for political reasons, a senior finance ministry official said on Thursday.

Pension Secretary Marcelo Caetano told foreign journalists at a briefing in Sao Paulo that the last-minute decision to remove those categories from the constitutional amendment before submitting the proposal to Congress this week was made by more senior officials.
