the summer time started at midnight on Sunday (4) in the 10 states of the Southern, Southeastern and Central West and Federal Districts. The locals have to pass the lessons in one hour.
The change will be effective until the third Sunday of February 2019 (17), when the hours later pass again and are in line with the rest of the country.
The study shows that summer time does not work
According to the Ministry of Mining and Energy, the North and North-Eastern regions do not accept the differentiated timetable because they are closer to the equator, where the difference between daylight and summer is greater in daylight.
The measure adopted since 1931 aims to save energy in the peak season of the year, from 18:00 to 21:00. However, the Department of the Ministry's study pointed out that change is no longer the same efficiency as a result of the time changes in higher costs.
The 104-day, 2018/2019 daytime saving time is less than last year when the change occurred 21 days earlier on the third Sunday of October.
The change was a request from the TSE (Supreme Electoral Court), which changed the change on the second round of 2018 elections.
According to Anac, the aircraft has already taken into account summer time
The Ministry of Education (MEC) requested a new postponement of the first test of the Enem (National High School Exam), but the request was rejected by the government.
Next year, the elected presidential government team, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) is responsible for deciding whether the DST remains valid.
