Political parties will lose over 500,000 members in 2021

It was not easy for Brazilian politics. Parties lost 500,000 members in 2021just a year before the elections for the President, Governor, Senate, State and Federal Government. If in December 2020 16 654 826 voters were associated with the legend, now there are 16 090 180.

V PSL, old subtitles Jair Bolsonaro, was the one who lost the most people. At the end of 2020, there were 464 thousand people in the party, now there are less than 75 thousand of them. For the first time since 2004, the party has fewer than 100,000 members.

“Some of those who leave PSL are connected with an unsuccessful attempt to create Aliança pelo Brasil, and another part with the president’s loss of popularity over these three years,” explained political analyst Marcelo Issa.

The IDBs, PSDB, PDT, PTB, PP and Democrats also lost members. The latter even announced last year an alliance with PSL to form União Brasil.

New voters can play a decisive role in the elections, the political scientist believes;  watch the interview

Political scientist Andre Rosa believes that the new two million young voters could play a decisive role in the October elections. Not only because of the number of votes, but also because of the issues that candidates may be forced to decide.

“In order to reach this new audience, it is important that candidates are in the same environment as these young people, for example on social media. It is much easier for 16 and 17 year olds to see candidate proposals on Instagram than at 20:00 during the election.”

He recalled that in the 2014 elections, when the presidential race was between Esio Neves and Dilma Rousseff, the result of the second round was determined by a difference of 3,459,963 votes. In other words, new voters could influence the direction of Brazilian politics this election year.

According to the political scientist, a large number of new titles is due to the political interest of young people due to the recent crises that Brazil is experiencing. “Political discussions in academic spaces favor the contact and interaction of young people with the politics of their country,” the researcher comments.

he understands it the young woman does not fit into the conservative discourse of Jair Bolsonaro, who values ​​the traditional family and religion. “Perhaps this woman no longer wants to be within that traditionalism, maybe she wants to join the discourse of more freedom, whether it be sexual, professional, desiring or not having a family. Because of this, young women’s voices are more directed towards the PT candidate, who has a more progressive narrative.”

“You have to understand the political game of others,” says Aquilon about the PL’s candidacy for the government – ​​PontoPoder

The State President of the PL in Ceara, Mayor Asilón Gonçalves, said this Wednesday (6th) that the party must set the course for candidacy to the state government around the 15th of this month. There is the possibility of nominating your own candidacy, as well as supporting the name of Captain Wagner (UB).

Asilon, who politically leads several prefectures on Ceara’s east coast, will wait for other groups (including a ruling base) to be determined before Bolsonaro’s opposition is any.

“You have to understand the political game of others in order for the political-administrative project to win,” the manager said during the presentation of Jair Bolsonaro’s candidacy for president in Ceara.

Captain Wagner (UB) was invited to the event. The pre-candidate sought dialogue with the party, trying to reach an agreement by August 5, the last day for registration of candidacies.

Raimundo Gómez de Matos, one of the names mentioned by the PL for running for governor of Ceara, said the party’s own candidacy “depends on a pact” with the parties surrounding the Bolsonarist camp.

“I think that these agreements will take place in the second half of the game, two minutes before overtime, something like that,” admitted the ex-federal deputy.

Event

The meeting with right-wing leaders was aimed at uniting Bolsonaro’s supporter groups that are “free” from the state. The LP wants to build an electoral speech in defense of the President of the Republic.

Another strategy is to seek official data on public investments made by the Union in Ceara in order to strengthen Bolsonaro’s image in Ceara.
