    Military option in Brazil: hard-line ex general with presidential aspirations surfaces

    Hamilton-Mourao’s presidential run is being seriously considered by political observers, says the media. His primary campaign emphasis is public security.

    Antonio Hamilton Mourao, a reserve general in Brazil’s military, has joined the Brazilian Labour Party (PRTB) days before the deadline, which would allow him to run for president in the October’s general elections. His registration was made public Wednesday, shortly after presidential hopeful Joaquim Barbosa confirmed that he would not be a candidate in the election.
