Social analysts call for political failure to take advantage of people's vulnerability in elections

The Angolan people go to the polls in August for the fifth time to choose their rulers and representatives in the Legislative Assembly of the Grand Chamber.

The road leading up to the general election, however, has strong signs of the social poverty that permeates the country, which is why analysts are calling for a political failure to take advantage of Angolan families’ socio-economic vulnerabilities.

A set of measures aimed at improving the lives of the people of Angola was carried out by the government of João Lourenço.

Among the actions aimed at changing the country’s social framework is raising the national minimum wage and the civil service.

The measures are welcome, analysts say, but because they come in a general election year, they raise awareness of the dangers of depriving political and electoral dividends.

The family must become aware of its importance in the political context, says João Nicolau, an anthropologist who advocates the creation of political consciousness by Angolan families so that they clearly understand the problems they want to solve after the 2022 general elections.

“The family should also see itself as a political organization. Seeing itself as a political organization, it presupposes knowing how to respond to the challenges that this whole process will offer.

From here, we need to start building political awareness among the families themselves,” he says.

Nicolau understands that such a family model is possible in the conditions of Angola, where the most needy families face all sorts of difficulties.

“Yes, it is possible, given what I would call political solidarity based on the testimony of Milton Santos,” he says.

Referring to the current political, economic and financial context, Sebastian André, a lawyer and professor at Mbothe University, cites some family assistance programs designed by the government to minimize social needs, as he does not approve of this idea, according to which is the most viable model to end poverty. where thousands of Angolans live.

“What needs to be done is to create a basis for the employment of family members. By having a job, families create ways to minimize poverty,” said the lawyer, for whom “the social and cash transfer program – Kwenda – implemented by the Angolan government is just a drop in the ocean,” given the range of problems that Angolan families face, especially in the year of universal elections.

According to this legal analyst, there are currently many factors in Angola that put families in a vulnerable position, so he proposes that the state develop policies to ensure that families are self-reliant through incentives to create more agricultural cooperatives and small and medium-sized companies.

On the other hand, anthropologist João Nicolau draws attention to the need for families to have an economic base capable of making positive leaps regardless of government initiatives.

This, in his opinion, should be the model of the family, which should be achieved after the elections.

“With effective methods, we can achieve this, and the path goes through this first: keep shouting so they can hear us. today, not only with regard to hunger, but also an atrophied conscience,” this analyst defends.

Relying on professionals in the humanities, such as sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, social educators, may be the best way to find solutions to the problems that Angolan families face, adds Mbote Sebastian André, for whom campaign promises are not enough, it’s me in the elections, which will become part of the state, to move from words to deeds.

The politician weighs Ibovespa, the best predictions for VIIA3 and other events of the day

High global inflation and rising bets that the world will face an economic recession scenario continue to feed the financial market bears in the four corners of the world, monopolizing investor attention.

Even in a scenario marked by strong risk aversion, Wall Street’s major indexes took a breather from bleeding and saw a ray of hope in the weaker data on the US economy: the stock exchanges broke a series of three consecutive losses.

B3, however, still sees no reason to dream of better days – the news coming out of Brazil actually complicates matters further.

If the discussion about a more significant intervention in Petrobras (PETR4) has become softer, President Jair Bolsonaro again caused irritation this morning by publicly defending a 200 reais increase in Auxílio Brasil.

This and other public spending promises have been circulated in recent days, and while the Union has not released any other details, it is enough to allay the fears of a heavily indebted country without a financial balance.

Although Ibovespa has followed Wall Street’s rise this Friday (24), breathing has become shorter and risk aversion has intensified – inflation continues to show strength that could force our Central Bank to extend monetary tightening.

While the New York stock exchanges jumped about 3%, the main B3 index rose 0.60% to 98,672 points and fell 1.15% on the week. The spot dollar rose 0.44% to R$5.2527, gaining 2.11% over the past five sessions.

Mayan Caesar leaves ostracism and is considered a vice in RJ – 06/24/2022 – Poder

Mayan Caesar leaves ostracism and is considered a vice in RJ - 06/24/2022 - Poder

Having accumulated electoral defeats since 2008 when he left Rio de Janeiro’s mayor’s office, 77-year-old Councilor César Maia (PSDB) left the political ostracism he lived in to become the focus of controversy this year between pre-candidates for the state government.

Federal Deputy Marcelo Freixo (PSB-RJ) invited Maya to become his deputy as a candidate for the state government. The same post was offered to the former mayor by the city’s current president, Eduardo Páez (PSD), to be led by former OAB president Felipe Santa Cruz (PSD).

The former mayor delegated negotiations on his behalf to his son, Rodrigo Maia, who chairs the PSDB-RJ.

To Sheet he explained the reason for the interest in his name in this election as follows: “Perhaps because of the need for a brand experience.”

Both Freijo and Santa Cruz never held leadership positions. The PSB MP is also trying to expand his alliance with the center parties in order to disassociate himself from the image of a radical left that has been formed as a result of his 16-year affiliation with the PSOL.

Maya says she sees no contradiction in her possible commitment to a candidacy led by a left-wing politician.

“My political life has always fluctuated between left and center. When I came to the NFL, the goal was for the NFL to move to the center. That’s why Jamie Lerner and I migrated together,” he says.

PSOL, a member of Freixo’s alliance, said they were against his appointment as vice president.

The accusation of the deputy in the growth of the militia is also not a hindrance for the former mayor. He claims that the deputy was right.

“The first of these allowed police officers to live in communities. But later dynamics showed that Freixo was right,” the former mayor said.

Three-term mayor of Rio de Janeiro Maya left his post without much approval. His administration was the target of constant criticism in the following elections, including from former political godchildren such as Páez.

“My assessment is that the criticism during this election was skewed by popularity issues at the time. The affairs of politics. Possibly due to being in government for too long.”

The former mayor unsuccessfully attempted to hold elections for the Senate three times in 2010, 2014 and 2018. At the latter, he led the voting intent polls ahead of the election, but was overtaken by Arolde de Oliveira (died 2020). whose start was similar to that of Wilson Witzel in state government.

Maya attributes the Senate’s defeats to its lack of domestic votes. He is currently serving his third term as an adviser, a position he has always been elected to as one of the top four voters.

Council member Tarcisio Mota (PSOL) classifies César Maia’s term as “independent”.

“He is not 100% faithful to the directives of the Paez administration. He usually defends the directives of government officials like us. As far as economic and fiscal directives are concerned, we often disagree. But we have a lot of dialogues. adviser,” said Mota, in contrast to Freixo, who was elected by the former mayor as deputy.

Cesar Maia has been assembled since the start of the new coronavirus pandemic and is still participating virtually in city council meetings.

A pending alliance with Freixo could leave the candidacy defended by Páez, César Maia’s former political godson, whose departure contributed to the former mayor’s downfall, isolated.

Paez claims to “take his word” from Rodrigo Maia. According to him, the PSDB promised to support Felipe Santa Cruz. PSD’s alliance with PDT, announced in February, is also under threat.

“Cesar is a very qualified team, very prepared and has a lot to add to the list,” Paez said.

Maya says she does not regret past criticism from Paez. “Because I was always discussing ideas, this personal question never crossed my mind.”

However, he makes it clear that his son is negotiating and that he no longer has frequent contact with the current mayor. “Not. His relationship with Rodrigo Maia has always been constant, even after the 2012 elections.”

He also has no plans to share a platform with former President Lula, Freixo’s top electoral leader. “PSDB-RJ representation depends on Deputy Rodrigo Maia,” says the former mayor.
