BRASILIA, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Brazil's Presidential Chief of Staff, Eliseu Padilha, said on Thursday the government could submit a bill in April to simplify the country's tax system, as part of broad economic reforms to kindle growth after a deep recession.
Padilha, speaking to reporters, added he was confident the judiciary would confirm the legality of the appointment of Wellington Moreira Franco to a ministerial post. A federal judge suspended on Wednesday the nomination of Moreira Franco, a close ally to President Michel Temer, after he was reportedly named in a massive corruption scandal.
