Brazil's Bolsonaro wants crusading judge in cabinet

Brazil's Bolsonaro wants crusading judge in cabinet

"Bolsonaro is going to have to be much more careful about what he says because he has an economy which is much more fragile", he said.

Bolsonaro, who has expressed admiration for dictators including Chile's Augusto Pinochet, claimed many Brazilians now believed Brazil's military regime "wasn't a dictatorship as the left has always preached". "The party has the backing of organized labour and social movements, but Lula has the support of the mass of society, the poorest people in Brazil", said Ricardo Musse, a sociologist at the University of Sao Paulo.

"This country belongs to all of us, Brazilians by birth or by heart, a Brazil of diverse opinions, colours and orientations", he said, reading off a sheet of paper in a live television address.

Bolsonaro, as shown by his decision to change political parties nine times in his 28 years in politics, is a wild card.

Licking their wounds, many party leaders can not help looking back to the past as they diagnose what went wrong.

Brazilian voters hung their hopes on a populist savior in closely-watched weekend elections, sweeping firebrand personality Jair Bolsonaro into the presidential office in a move that has human rights activists and those fearful of a return to authoritarianism on edge.

His populist approach has led to some media dubbing him "Trump of the Tropics".

He also once said he'd rather have a dead son than a gay one.




Guedes, who wants to privatize an array of state firms, said on Sunday the new government will try to erase Brazil's budget deficit within a year, simplify and reduce taxes, and create 10 million jobs by cutting payroll taxes.

He also floated Moro as a possibility for one of two Supreme Court positions set to be vacated during his term. However, Bolsonaro has proposed adding 10 more justices to the 11-member court.

Juntas, or Together, won a seat in the legislature of the northeastern state of Pernambuco on October 7. Both collectives belong to the progressive Socialism and Liberty party and are in favor of LGBTQ equality. "A lot of people don't have the right information".

The former army captain huddled with his inner circle at the home of a wealthy backer in Rio de Janeiro to start forming what advisor Gustavo Bebianno called "a combat vanguard" for the new administration.

"It's possible that even with his win, we could see a further wave of violence among Bolsonaro's supporters against those who backed his opponent", Santoro said.

Asked about Brazil's currency, Lorenzoni said Bolsonaro would offer businesses more predictability, but ruled out an exchange rate target.

With Bolsonaro like Trump holding the global body in low esteem, it is unlikely he will prioritize the Security Council, Velasco said.
