Brazil's Bolsonaro gets to work on hardline agenda

Jair Bolsonaro supporters rally in Rio de Janeiro

THE army general tapped by Brazil's far-right president-elect Jair Bolsonaro to be defence minister yesterday said snipers should be deployed to take down armed criminal suspects.

Brazil is already the deadliest country in the world in which to defend your land, with at least 57 people murdered a year ago, 25 of them in three massacres.

Several young people even came in their school uniforms and warned that the elected president "is very bad for the country because of the history and the dictatorship" that the country has already experienced.

Bolsonaro has vowed to turn up pressure on Venezuela's authoritarian leftist government to hold free elections that could stem the flow of refugees into neighboring Brazil and Colombia, also governed by a conservative president.

The Brazilian judge at the center of a sprawling investigation into kickbacks to politicians is considering joining the government of President-elect Jair Bolsonaro.

The PT still has a solid base of about 30% of the electorate - but will need more than that to mount a forceful opposition to Bolsonaro. "There will be a sector that will try to ditch Lula, another that will lead the political opposition (to Bolsonaro). and another that will drive social resistance with street protests".

Implant technology allows three to walk again
Both men had been told they would never walk again and were wheelchair bound. With the implant, Mzee can now walk over half a mile while using a walker.

"They follow the wave that looks like salvation, but really it's the brink of collapse", she said, claiming Bolsonaro's plans will likely worsen crime, violence and inequality.

Investors have been particularly heartened by Bolsonaro's choice of Guedes, a Chicago University-trained economist and investment banker, as future economy minister. New rules will boost investment in infrastructure, he told reporters.

Seleme added it would also bolster accusations from the Workers Party (PT), whose candidate Fernando Haddad lost to Bolsonaro in Sunday's vote, that Moro has a vendetta against the PT and worked to keep it from power. He said he was committed to fiscal discipline and called for the early elimination of the federal government´s budget deficit.

May Boeve, executive director at climate NGO 350.org, warned that a Bolsonaro presidency posed "a real threat to human rights at home and a risk to the momentum for climate action overseas". Lorenzoni reiterated his view that efforts to reform Brazil's pension system should wait until next year.

Bolsonaro, who openly admires Brazil's former military dictatorship and shocked many with his derogatory remarks on women, LGBT people and people of color, remained vague about the environment during campaigning.

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