Two months after winning the presidency with 55 percent of the valid votes, it is now time for Brazil’s President-elect Jair Bolsonaro to take office. His inauguration will be today, January 1st, in Brasília.
The ceremony starts at 2:45 pm (Brazil time) and will be marked by heavy security measures (including restricting access to the press) – as Mr. Bolsonaro was stabbed in the stomach on September 6 during a campaign rally. There is still no information about whether or not Mr. Bolsonaro will be riding in an open convertible car during the parade leading up to the Congress building.
You can follow the inauguration ceremony live on state TV NBR.
