At 36, the Brazilian Socialist Party’s vice-presidential candidate entered the presidency with a self-criticism and a controversial proposal to save the country from three decades of stagnation, a period where the PSB was united.
The candidate is Geraldo Alkmin, former governor of Sওo Paulo, vice president of Lulu, from PT, the leader in the electoral vote. A center-south spokesman, Alkmin is the newest member of the party chorus that still celebrates the Socialist International’s Sequential Anthem.
To the rich, everything is allowed … “).
The self-criticism is contained in a document approved in Brasilia yesterday: “The Left, part of which the PSB has failed to implement the structural reforms needed to transform society, including political, tax, agricultural, urban and labor reforms. , And has modernized political practice. In contrast, part of it adheres to the traditional way of forming alliances through corporatism, patriotism, physiology and corruption. “
This is a set of documents, including proposals for changes to the PSB’s foundation, government, law and judiciary for a “self-reform”. These are the ideas collected during the two years of internal debate, which have been presented for discussion in the presidential campaign.
They reflect a sense of urgency about the absence of “a project for the country”, party president Carlos Sikera said yesterday, after a three-day meeting with state representatives.
“You can say whatever you want about the military, but when they were in power, they had a project for their country,” he said. “It simply came to our notice then. Those in power have no plans. This extreme right is the worst in our country. He came from behind, who was the same person who stood against the president [Ernesto] Geisel when he started the political opening. Who was the General [Augusto] Helen [chefe do Gabinete de Segurança Institucional de Jair Bolsonaro]? He was an adviser to the minister [do Exército] Silvio Frota, who wanted to overthrow Giselle [em 1977] Because he wanted to open the door to democracy. These are in the hands of the international financial system, who love a weak government without ideas, because the ideas that will always exist will be their ideas. “
The country’s decades-old two-pronged approach to state and market, now ideologically defined by the PSB, is over. “They are complementary, not antagonistic entities”, but include a “reasonable capital control required to manage competitive exchange rates”, and include “extremely strong banking sector to finance development”. In strategically considered sectors such as energy, water and sanitation, the state should reign supreme, he believes, advising complete opposition to privatization in these areas.
For the PSB, the basis for change will be a comprehensive political reform – “the most urgent”. It means taking parliament; Implementation of mixed district votes; Five-year term in the executive branch, without re-election; Barriers to electoral performance of parties (5%); And, the introduction of the recall system, where voters are empowered to return to the vote to “withdraw the mandate of elected infidels.”
The party has proposed changes to the legal process of the budget, which will begin with “re-enactment of the budget committee, including permanent operations, but only as a systematic part of the budget process”. It would be an attempt to prevent a parliamentary system corrupted by a parallel budget, as is currently the case with Bolsona’s presidency.
It suggests a comprehensive restructuring of the judiciary: “With the adoption of new forms, technical, meritorious and transparency standards, it is imperative to adopt an eight-year limit for the performance of ministers and judges of higher and state courts.”
Take these vacancies. “
Whether you like PSB’s ideas or not, they stir up controversy in the campaign. The text is long, broad and punctuated by the word “creativity” – one of them is repeated 215 times.
