Biden election will put pressure on Bolsonaro’s agenda, says expert

Published

on

São Paulo – The leader of the election polls for the United States Presidency, Democrat Joe Biden, could be a stumbling block for Jair Bolsonaro. Professor Leonardo Avritzer, from the Department of Political Science at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), believes that, if elected, Biden will put pressure on Brazil’s environmental agenda.

Despite Bolsonaro trying to get closer to current President Donald Trump, the expert recalls that the country is not considered a partner on equal terms. “With Trump, the United States denied support for the Brazilian candidacy in the OECD, introduced economic protection over steel exports. However, Bolsonaro and Biden’s relations will be even worse, based on criticism of problems in the environment and human rights in Brazil, ”says Avritzer.

THE Current Brazil Radio, the researcher at the National Institute of Science and Technology for Studies on the United States Neusa Bodijkian has already said that Brazil will not have an easy life in the coming years, regardless of who wins the US elections, scheduled to take place on November 3.

She believes that President Bolsonaro’s alignment with Trump, in his eventual re-election, should not bring commercial benefits to Brazil. On the other hand, with a possible victory for the Democrat, the United States’ trade war against China tends to cool down. As a result, Brazilian agricultural products would lose space in the US market.

North American Race

On Thursday (15), a survey by WSJ and NBC was published. Former Vice President Joe Biden appears with 11 percentage points ahead of Donald Trump in the race for the United States Presidency. The Democrat has 53% of the vote, against 42% for the Republican.

Eighteen days before the elections, to be held on November 3, more than 17 million voters have already voted in advance by mail. For the UFMG professor, Trump is weakened in the electoral race, due to the lack of action to fight the covid-19 pandemic.

“The pandemic is central to the electoral issue, due to its impact on the country that has 7 million people infected by covid-19, but it is not the only issue. Trump’s income tax will also have a relevant weight, as will the conservative inflection of the Supreme Court, which can have an impact for decades, ”added Avritzer.

São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
