Bolsonaro in Talks with Brazil Lawmakers for Support in Congress

On Monday Brazil’s far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro said that he was already in talks with other lawmakers in Congress to gain support if he wins a second-round run-off later this month, as his party would not be able to govern alone.

According to reuters, speaking the day after he came just shy of a first-round victory in Brazil’s most polarized election in decades, Bolsonaro also said he would stick with his Wall Street-friendly economic advisor Paulo Guedes, adding that he would hew to his hard-line message and not become a “peace and love” candidate.
