“Datapovo” does not exist: it is the politician who considers the world his bubble

Published

Jornal Opção

Anyone who has been on a longer journey as a spectator of election periods must have already had this experience (or something similar): it is a meeting with a candidate from a district or region who, when asked how the campaign is going, is excited that he sees in his wanderings, he says: “Listen, of course, I count on your vote, but I can tell you that I am elected. Everywhere I go, everyone greets me and says they will vote for me.”

This is the classic—and, frankly, more modest—version of “datapov,” an expression coined by Bolsonarism to disregard the intentions of the vote. Polls pointing to former President Luiz Inácio Lulu da Silva (PT) as the favorite in the presidential election.

It’s not that Jair Bolsonaro (PL) is not a popular politician: on the contrary, he will go down in Brazilian history as one of the greatest grassroots leaders. His ability to achieve organic mobilization is indisputable – it is not for nothing that the motto of the Bolesonarists, convinced by their demonstrations, is: “I came for free.”

The point is that the difference between a Bolsonarist bubble and a folklore city council candidate who thinks he will win the election is only one of size. As gigantic and powerful as a photograph of the entire coastline of Copacabana or the entire Esplanada dos Ministérios painted green and yellow, this is not a scientific study. Just like the fact that Lula doesn’t take to the streets, and if she does, it doesn’t lead to crowds, and P.T. comes out because he’s also a grassroots leader, doesn’t mean the polls are lying.

To end the reflection with a question that leaves a flea behind the ear of those who stop to think deeper: September 7, whether in Brasilia, Rio or São Paulo, no matter how many tens or hundreds of thousands there were in the Bolsonarist demonstrations… there were more people or did they enjoy the holiday at home? So what would happen if we thought that the universe of those who did not vote for Bolsonaro was shaped by all those who chose to stay on the couch that day?

In short, the talk of “data people” is nothing more than a clever strategy for someone who can actually mobilize a lot of people to take to the streets and show strength. Which has an impact, but does not mean that studies based on statistics and already tested methodologies are lying.

Political support for sports!

Vila Nova deve estrear no Olímpico nesse Goianão 2022

In the 2022 elections, some sports-related names in Goiás tried to compete for a seat in the Legislative Assembly or in the National Congress, but did not succeed in the elections. Dante do Volei was not elected as a federal deputy, nor were Edson Automoveis, former councilor of Goiania, and Luis Bercuo, former president of the Goiás Basketball Federation, were not elected as state deputies. All of them have a list of relevant services provided to the Brazilian sport. They have earned a seat in Parliament.

Of the candidates strongly associated with sports, Daniel Vilela, who was elected lieutenant governor on the list of Ronaldo Cayado, succeeded. Daniel is a former professional soccer player. He has the right to represent the segment. Daniel Vilela is expected to have a strong focus on sports through the expansion of sports promotion programs in our state.

Goiás has interesting projects and sports support programs. Pro-Atleta is committed to serving high performance athletes; Construcindo Champions, a martial arts training program with about 7,900 students from Goiás; The Viva Mais Goias program targets seniors in 19 cities across the state.

The sports and parasports centers have been established by the State Department of Sports and Recreation (Seel) in cooperation with the municipalities of the hinterland. Also in partnership with the organizer of the championship of Spain, Seel implements the social project La Liga Goias with the distribution of sports materials in several municipalities of Goias.

Through Seel, the government promotes various sporting events and competitions. The Open Games of Goiás, the largest sports competition in the state, are designed for the participation of athletes from all the municipalities of Goiás in 21 uniforms. This year, the Quilombola Cup was created, which is held in six stages with the final in the city of Cavalcante.

At the national level, the Senate approved Bill 940 of 2022, which extends until 2027 the tax benefits provided by the Sports Promotion Act (Act 11,438 of 2006). The rapporteur on this issue was the former player Romario, who was re-elected as a senator from the PL of Rio de Janeiro. In addition to extending the term, the Senate-approved rule increases the rates that companies and individuals can use in their annual income tax (IT) contributions and includes elementary, middle and high schools as fundraisers.

In the case of individual taxpayers, the new LIE increases from 6% to 7% of the IRPF due to the deduction limit as a donation or sponsorship for sports and parasports projects. This, together with contributions to funds for children and the elderly, to cultural projects and investments in audiovisual works.

In the case of companies, it increases the deduction limit for donations or sponsorships of sports and parasports projects from 1% to 2%. It also includes projects for social inclusion through sports, up to a collective limit of 4%, which is currently shared only between cultural projects and investments in audiovisual works.

I think laws and programs to encourage sports should go beyond sponsoring athletes and teams from different sports. They also need to contain strategies for social inclusion. Only in this way will the entire population benefit from physical and sporting activities, leading to a healthier life for all.

We hope that elected politicians will follow through on the promises made during the campaign and step up action in favor of sport. We want to see the plate!

Portugal wants to give more voice to youth and promote women in politics |

Published

on

The Portuguese prime minister spoke to UN News about the opportunities and challenges in politics: internally, he is betting on the expectation of seeing a woman at the helm of government in the future, if the Portuguese choose to do so.

In foreign policy, Costa is in favor of expanding the exchange between young people from the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries, Corporal.

Reconstruct broke denomination

Antonio Costa was interviewed UN news at the end of September, when he participated in the debate of international leaders at the General Assembly.

“Portugal is really proud. A week ago, the government was equal at the level of ministers. There was a small alteration in which parity was violated. In short, the prime ministers and presidents of the republic will be chosen by the Portuguese. I really hope that I will have a woman prime minister again. One already was. And who knows if there will be another one in the future. Let’s see.”

According to the government website, there are eight women in Costa’s current cabinet of 17 ministers. At the second level, there are 12 secretaries of state.

The only head of government in Portuguese history remained in office for about six months. María de Lourdes Pintasilgo was appointed by President Ramallo Eanes to the post and became the first and only woman to serve as prime minister. At that time, she was second in Western Europe after Margaret Thatcher, who came to power in 1979 and left in 1990.

In the Assembly of the Portuguese Republic, out of 230 seats, 85 are held by women and 145 by men.

Crescent movement

António Costa also mentioned Portugal’s cooperation with the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries, Cplp, and said that consolidating his position is one of the tasks that should remain a priority in the block of nine countries.

“I see great opportunities to promote Cplp as an international political issue. I have noticed that there is a growing movement of countries wishing to become CPLP observers because they have realized that, unlike other international organizations, the CPLP must be geographically global. Almost every continent has a CPLP country. The fact that he has a great capacity for political articulation, and this is very beneficial. We supported each other in various international positions. This gives a very significant relative weight to the CPLP countries.”

Costa emphasized that the group of nations is connected not only by past relationships. Angola has been chairing the bloc since 2021.

“We must significantly improve economic relations. I think of many countries as examples of how relationships can be reinvented after such a long colonial period. By the way, longer than most others. So tough: we should not forget that for three years and at least on three fronts an absurd colonial war was waged, which ended only in 1974. So the ability is that we had the ability to reinvent ourselves in our relationships.”

Communication between young people

Costa also advocates for greater connection between young people from Member States who have a network and space to think about.

“Many European countries that I see see this relationship with Cplp as an interesting experience in overcoming and rethinking new relationships. And there is a big problem that we have: new generations. Fortunately, new generations have fewer memories, but also fewer connections with each other. We must create mechanisms to maintain these relations, and therefore I think that the mobility agreement is very important in order for these relations to continue to strengthen between our peoples.”

The purpose of the future mobility system is to establish short-stay, temporary and residence visas between Member States.

This year in New York there was no meeting of the leaders of the bloc, traditionally organized on the sidelines of the General Assembly.

The 13th is not a political interest, the minister says

The 13th is not a political interest, the minister says

Minister of Citizenship Ronaldo Bento denied that the 13th Auxílio Brasil promised by the President of the Republic for female heads of households will be implemented from 2023. Jair Bolsonaro, this Tuesday, have political aspirations. According to him, the limitation of the allowance for women is due to the fact that the female population is the majority in the financial support of beneficiary families, with a percentage of 80%. Bolsonaro is at an electoral disadvantage because of the women in the Planalto Palace dispute with the former president. Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT).

Bento argued that the innovation was backed up by technical analysis and that waiting for the end of the election period to announce the relief did not make sense, given that the starving population was in a hurry. However, Bolsonaro promises to pay on the 13th in 2023. “The political variable was never included in the Auxilio Brasil decision. We have identified dysfunctions in the program. during the election period? We are emerging from the pandemic and during the war. Those who are hungry and in need of social assistance cannot wait.”

As for funding the measure in the midst of a meager 2023 budget forecast that still doesn’t include a promise to keep Auxílio Brasil at R$600 a month, Bento hesitated. The minister only said that an increase in the allowance to 400 reais per month was not provided for in the draft budget for this year. “There was no forecast in Ploa, but we managed to do it in relation to public money. Instead of ending up in a money bag, they will go to the people of Brazil.”

Regarding the payment on the 13th of Auxílio Brasil, Caixa President Daniella Marquez said that there is no difficulty for Caixa and that it will be made automatically from the moment the measure enters into force.

In addition to the 13th Auxílio Brasil, the government also announced on Monday an advance benefit payment for this month, with transfers that will end five days before the second round of elections (30), up from the 31st originally.

The measures were announced after a tough result in the first round of the presidential election, in which Bolsonaro was closer to former President Lula than polls indicated. Lula had 48.43% of the vote against 43.20% for the incumbent. Now the Planalto chief is waving to audiences he is at a disadvantage to PT, such as the lower classes and women, in an attempt to change the outcome of the second stage of the argument.
