Have the moderate right found itself on the Brazilian political landscape?  YES - 10/14/2022 - Opinion

At present, there is an undermining of public opinion’s trust in representative institutions. This phenomenon, which affects several democracies, has been called “the democracy of discontented democrats.”

Some analysts believe that such discontent is not a problem, since criticism of democracy can be neutralized by leaders and institutions. However, rebel groups against the system are growing in the country and have come to dominate the agenda, whether it be mobilizing public opinion in the streets and networks or gaining political positions. The moderate right is recruited or repositioned by these authoritarian movements, which are flexible and bring about changes in the political agenda, as well as influencing other parties to adopt their themes.

As for the profile of the European right-wing radical, the average voter is a man, more or less young, with an average level of education and hesitating about the issue of immigration. This pattern—men and whites—is being repeated among voters who support the Brazilian radical right. However, what stands out in the country is the proliferation of Christian institutions, especially those of Pentecostal and neo-Pentecostal origin, which are legitimized by the speech of the current president.

Guided by the theology of dominion, its followers, mostly belonging to the popular classes, gave authority to the politicians who propagated this doctrine. They propagate that the policy is to create a Christian nation whose core is the battle of “good against evil”. But many of this army of believers are made up of non-whites and the poorest, loyal to the religious leaders who supply these communities with missing social services and job opportunities for “brethren.”

This sacred vision of politics influences governments, wins seats in legislatures across the country, and debates topics such as communication, education, science, family, entertainment, and economics. The number of right-wingers in the 2020 municipal elections exceeded 50% for the first time. Parties such as DEM, PL, PSL, PP and PSD won in city halls.

This year, the number of rights continued to grow, but it was PL that grew. However, the more ideological LP, influenced by Jair Bolsonaro and his sons, who weakened the power of the party’s president, Valdemar Costa Neto, and instilled in this and other parties many politicians loyal to Bolsonaro and supporting religious or radical views on politics. .

It is difficult to calculate the exact number of right-wing supporters elected in 2022, since they are not affiliated with any party and have held positions in state governments, the Federal Senate, the Chamber of Deputies and Legislative Assemblies. Thus, only after analyzing their political behavior in the future will it be possible to be convinced of the extent of the damage that this trend has caused to traditional rights.

Because of the legitimization of anti-secular programs, it is not only the moderate right that has lost its place in public opinion and institutions. The entry into the electoral market of politicians who preach against secularism and secularism is another indication of the erosion of Brazilian democracy. If the incumbent president is consecrated as a result of voting in the second round, we will have a strengthening of the autocratic regime.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
