    Brazil's speaker of the Lower House also wants to run for the presidency

    Maia said he would eschew “irresponsible populism” – an indication he would continue Temer’s reform efforts to rein in a bulging budget deficit.

    The speaker of Brazil’s lower house of Congress, Rodrigo Maia, said he will run for the presidency with a market-friendly platform advocating tax cuts and more efficient public spending. Maia’s preliminary nomination by his centre-right Democrats party, the main ally to President Michel Temer, must be formalized at a convention in late July.
