SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras said on Tuesday the personnel committee of its board of directors had certified that the executive nominated by the government to serve as the company's new CEO fulfills all legal requirements.

Joaquim Silva e Luna was nominated after right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro disagreed with the gas pricing policy implemented by Petrobras.
