Regina Duarte will leave the Secretariat of Culture to lead the Cinemateca Brasileira in São Paulo.

Under fire for her actions as Secretary of Culture, actress Regina Duarte had to turn to federal deputy Carla Zambelli (PSL-SP) to find a way to exit as Secretary of Culture honorably.

Regina was working last week on a project to produce videos that present the activities already performed in the ministry. She took office in March.

In addition to Zambelli, with whom Regina is a friend, she has the support of the Secretary of Special Affairs of the Presidency of the Republic, Rear Admiral Flávio Rocha.

The federal deputy must recommend names for Culture since Regina's choices were overruled by herself or President Jair Bolsonaro.

According to a former ally of the actress, Regina has acted in an untimely manner and isolated herself from her main supporters.

Last weekend, Deputy Secretary Pedro Horta and press officer Renata Giralda left the Special Secretariat for Culture.

According to reports made to the report, the two allies fell out after Regina's interview with CNN Brasil. In it, the conversation was interrupted, after what the secretary called a tantrum.
