The rural caucus in Congress want any demarcation of indigenous lands are suspended while new rules on the subject are formulated. On Thursday (11), members of the parliamentary front of Farming come together with technicians from the Ministry of Justice to discuss legal frameworks on the subject.
The report is of Radioagência NP, 4/9/2013.

The “ruralists” had already met with the Minister of Justice, Jose Eduardo Cardozo, in the last week, to dealing with the matter. Another meeting is planned for next week with the Prosecutor General of the Republic, Roberto Gurgel.

In a statement to the Agency, the Member of the rural Caucus, Deputy Jerônimo Goergen (PP-RS), said that “it [rural] has no more legal certainty no guarantee your property” in this process.
Currently, the demarcation of indigenous territories comply with the Federal Constitution, that the areas traditionally occupied by Indians are owned by Union and are intended for permanent ownership.
However, there are many conflicts, as many farmers have claimed ownership of land titles by indigenous people. As is the case of the guarani-kaiowá in Mato Grosso do Sul.
The final word on the demarcation of indigenous lands is of the Executive power, but “ruralists” want to change this, parliamentarians, promoting initiatives such as the PEC 215/00, which transfers it to the National Congress this attribution.
