After months of instability and murmurs of impeachment circulating in the corridors of Brasília, President Jair Bolsonaro is trying to turn over a new leaf for the remainder of his term, hoping to put squabbles with the Supreme Court and Congress behind him. The order of business is to seize the temporary feeling of harmony in the Legislative branch and try to push through an agenda that will yield positive headlines and get investors excited about Brazil.
Both chambers of Congress have been somewhat pacified after the recent leadership elections, with allies of the president winning the races for House Speaker and Senate President. However, no-one knows how long this relative calm among the branches of government will last. If the past two-plus years of Mr. Bolsonaro’s term are anything to go by, the next crisis is likely to be right around the corner.
