According to media reports, Cardozo was under pressure from the ruling Workers Party because he failed to curb a corruption investigation on the party’s politicians and former Petrobras functionaries.

Cardozo will become the attorney general, and he will be replaced by Wellington Cesar Lima e Silva, former general prosecutor of the Bahia State, according to the presidency’s Social Communications Secretariat.

The current attorney general, Luis Inacio Adams, is reportedly to leave the government for personal reasons.
