Join for a talk with Márcio Fortes, Visiting Scholar – Center on Global Economic Governance. He will talk about the Brazilian Politics after 2018. This talk is part of the Brazil Research Seminar Series.
“The October 2018 General Election in Brazil will be the last one of the present day political period after 1982 first direct scrutiny for governors after military regime. Despite a few small changes made by congress as well as several interpretations from the Supreme Court, the rules will remain quite the same as in the last nine general elections.
We will appreciate and analyze the results, not only for President of the Republic, but also for Governors of the 27 States, most of them elected on October 28.
The new members of the Congress – Chamber of Deputies and Senate – and local Assemblies will be chosen at October 7th and we will also observe the composition of these colegiates, in terms of political parties weight, renovation process and ideological tendencies, possible coalitions in Congress and perspectives for 2019 and ahead.
We will see charts for the Congress composition – taking Parties and States – and study it.
Also, we will discuss the Country Governance limitations and possible achievements.”
The talk will be held on November 8th, 2018 from 1:00-2:00 PM in room 802 at the International Affairs Building (420 West 118th Street).
Food will be served.
