Time Magazine “Jair Bolsonaro Could Be Brazil’s Next President”

Time Magazine will do a long piece on Mr Jair Bolsonaro, the conservative rightwing presidential candidate for the Brazilian election of October who is currently leading the polls for its 3 September 2018 print issue, realizing full well that the largest South American nation could indeed elect, to use the words of the Time journalist, “Brazil’s own Donald Trump.”

Although economic markets love him, some fear that he would let Brazil return to a military style dictatorship. Asked whether he would consider such a move, Mr Bolsonaro states: “although there is a certain popular outcry for military intervention, from what I see, no one in the armed forces wants to launch it, as for us it would be an adventure.”

“I think politicians and the people have to find a solution for Brazil in a democratic way.”

The rightwing conservative candidate, who has a huge online following, does plan to significantly increase the role of armed forces in government: “We intend to have 15 ministers, and about five or six would be generals, for sure.”

Eu quero saber qual é o candidato hoje que arrasta multidão como ele.

“You have to show that you want a government with seriousness.”

Asked whether he would not start a military regime if elected President, Mr Bolsonaro answered: “no, there is no such risk. There is no such risk.”

“The only modification I would make is to introduce paper voting, to end electronic voting. We distrust the electronic vote here. That’s the only difference.”

Meanwhile, international investors fear that Brazil could face a choice between two extremes in a run-off. Although the UN, fearing unrest and violence in Brazil, urged the country’s courts to let jailed former President Lula run, few believe he will actually be able to. Before the deadline of September 17 to cast their candidate, many assume Mr Lula will appoint Mr Fernando Haddad as his PT replacement.
