Bolsonaro to contest in Brazil’s Prez election


Jair Bolsonaro, who is called by the nick name ‘Brazilian Trump’, has announced that he would participate in the upcoming presidential election as a candidate.

He is expected to be the candidate of the Social Liberal Party. The SLP is an extremely week party in Brazil. It is clear that the party is not powerful enough to assure Mr Bolsonaro a comfortable victory. But, there is no doubt that if he personally has enough charisma to attract the population of Brazil, he can win the presidential race.

At this stage, it is evident that the ‘Brazilian Trump’, like US President Donald Trump, has the support of a section of the society, which supports far-right ideologies. At present, Mr Bolsonaro is the second most popular candidate, among those who has officially or unofficially expressed their intention to participate in the election, after the infamous ex-President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is less likely to be allowed to participate in the election because of the legal complications surrounding his candidature.

It is to be noted that Mr Bolsonaro has some controversial opinions on the gun control law and abortion and he is under investigation for his provocative statements against the black Afro-Brazilians.

Is Brazil that foolish to elect him as the Supremo?
