AMORIM NETO, Octavio  e  ALVES PIMENTA, Gabriel. The First Year of Bolsonaro in Office: Same Old Story, Same Old Song?. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.2, pp.187-213.  Epub 19-Ago-2020. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2020005000103.

The rise of Bolsonaro is the latest episode of what seems to be a Brazilian tradition of electing rightwing populists as a response to corruption, bad economic management, and disenchantment with mainstream political parties. In previous opportunities, Brazilians elected Jânio Quadros (1960) and Fernando Collor (1989). However, Bolsonaro, although very similar to both Quadros and Collor on their hostility to parties and legislative institutions, brought novel elements. To identify the distinguishing features of Brazil's new president, we systematically compare Quadros, Collor, and Bolsonaro along 13 dimensions encompassing political context and attributes, policy choices, and institutional relations. Our findings indicate that throughout 2019, Bolsonaro led an unstable minority administration that governed for a minority in society and emphatically excluded some relevant sectors. Moreover, he established close connections with Evangelical groups and the military, and attacked the press and the Supreme Court at an unprecedented level.

Palavras-chave : Jânio Quadros; Fernando Collor; Latin American populism; rightwing presidents; minority government.
