    What a tangled web of non-entities comprise the elected members by the sound of this.

    Worse than the damnable coalition in the UK and that's saying something.

    They will never be a first world country with all the elected rats fighting their corners like this.

    Warfarin could be the answer!

    “”The Workers party, PT, of Dilma has the largest representation with 70 Lower House members despite having lost 16.“”
    Their largest ally is the PMDB, which won 66 seats. The interesting thing is that the PMDB, has historically been a party that likes to join the winning side in order to gain more Ministries, more influence etc....If they see the PT as losing ground - which in effect it has - they might decide to change sides, again.....If they only would, that would seal the PT's fate once and for all.
