BRASILIA Dec 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's central government posted a primary budget deficit of 6.711 billion reais ($2.5 billion) in November, the country's Treasury said on Monday.

The central government account, which covers federal ministries, the central bank and social security, posted a primary surplus of 1.6 billion reais in October.

The central bank is scheduled to release later on Monday the country's consolidated fiscal results, which adds in states, municipalities and some state-owned companies.
