The week in review
- Presidency. Jair Bolsonaro had his certification ceremony on Monday, the final administrative step of the election process. In a speech before the electoral court, the president-elect gestured towards opponents, asking for their trust so that together they “may build a better future for the country.” An Ibope opinion poll showed that 75% of Brazilians think Mr. Bolsonaro is “on the right track.”
- Marielle. Rio de Janeiro police carried out arrest and search warrants at several addresses in connection with the assassination of councilor Marielle Franco, in March.
