Bolsonaro publishes 22 commitments for a ‘better Brazil’

President and reelection candidate Jair Bolsonaro (PL) published 22 commitments to build a “better Brazil”. The Chief Executive used the twitter this Saturday, 29, to publicize his manifesto to voters.

“More than empty and abstract promises, Brazil needs a solid path, based on concrete actions and, above all, on principles”, wrote the president. “The following are 22 commitments that will make Brazil a more prosperous, freer and safer country for all.”

Among the proposals are the reduction of the age of criminal responsibility; the end of the custody hearing; reduction of homicides by 20%; encouraging the preservation of families; delivery of more than two million homes to low-income people; the increase in the minimum wage to R$ 1.4 thousand; the continuation of free market economic policy; the modernization of the Unified Health System, among others.

“There is much more beyond”, wrote Bolsonaro. “Rebuilding a continental country, abandoned for decades, takes time and a lot of effort. But today I can assure you that we managed to achieve our goals and finally transform Brazil into the nation we always dreamed of. To victory!”

The president also highlighted that he wants to preserve freedom of the press, expression and internet. In addition, he stressed that he does not intend to increase the number of ministers in the Federal Supreme Court.

“I will appoint ministers committed to protecting life from conception and liberty,” he explained. “And respect the independence between the powers and the Federal Constitution, our Democracy Charter.”

Lula’s letter

On Thursday 27, Lula (PT), candidate for the presidency, also released a letter to the Brazilian people. This is the “Letter to Brazil of Tomorrow”, which presents proposals for its eventual government.

“It is possible to combine fiscal responsibility, social responsibility and sustainable development”, argued the PT candidate in the text. “That’s what we’re going to do, following trends in the world’s major economies.”

The document is a version 2.0 of the Letter to the Brazilian People, launched in 2002, when the PT candidate was contesting the election that would lead to his first term as president of the Republic. The letter exposes 13 pillars that, according to the PT campaign, would sustain Brazil’s economy.
