The vote was postponed due to a lack of quorum, that is, when the number of voters does not reach what is necessary. The project was created by Altair Moraes (Republicans), who establishes as a priority the genre, biological sex of the competitors, according to the Estadão.
"We are not talking about behavior or sexual choice, we are talking about biology and physiology (…) We are talking about women who are being harmed in sport", declared the politician about the proposal.

But other deputies are not happy with this process and declare their dissatisfaction. ”This House is not proud to vote on this project. We have to leave it to those who understand and the decision must be made by the sports federations. It is unacceptable for us to enter such a delicate and dangerous area, ”said MDB member Jorge Caruso.
Congresswoman Erica Malunginho of PSOL also countered the Republican's statements, stating that such a project excludes affirmative proposals for the public. ”As excluding projects advance, affirmative projects do not advance here. It is a political message that trans people are not welcome in this place, as it is a population that is not in the sport, ”she added, saying that the majority of the trans population is in prostitution.
