The São Paulo Stock Exchange returned to a surprise after the state holiday on Tuesday. The pension reform, approved only a week earlier by the Special Commission, would pass the first round of voting in the House already that Wednesday (10). At the end of that day, the House concluded: 379 votes in favor, 131 against, and only three abstentions.
As I already said, politics has its own pace. Often, the rate of proceedings is unforeseeable, being conditioned by various factors particular to the political game. This explains why there are so many surprises when expectations are low, and so many disappointments due to high expectations.
