La forma di governo in Brasile: un bilancio dell’esperienza dopo la Presidenza Bolsonaro
Presidentialism in Brazil: an analysis of the experience after the Bolsonaro’s presidency – Brazilian Presidentialism has several political and institutional characteristics that favor the formation of government coalitions. Presidential attempts to impose their political agenda unilaterally have found obstacles due to the fragmentation of the Congress and, often, to the weakness of the president’s party. Bolsonaro’s mandate marked a new frontier of political negotiation, especially after the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. The aim of the present study is to describe how the Brazilian multi-party system, together with other aspects of the legal system, exercises a decisive counterweight role that prevents the establishment of an “Imperial Presidentialism” in the country.
