The chief of the Brazilian Lower House, Rodrigo Maia has held a round of political talks and contacts to discuss the current course of the government and attitude of president Jair Bolsonaro regarding the current Covid 19 pandemics.
The presidents of Brazil’s two houses of congress live side by side in modern mansions in Brasília, the capital. In May they built a door in the wall that divides their gardens, so they could meet without attracting notice. The political mood was fevered.
The Brazilian Senate elected a pro-government lawmaker as their chief, potentially boosting President Jair Bolsonaro’s reform agenda but also leaving the administration’s strength in the upper house in question. Bolsonaro congratulated Davi Alcolumbre, saying his challenge is to act on Brazilian voters’ desire for change.
