BRAZIL: Far-Right President Jair Bolsonaro Takes Office, Claims To Have Freed Nation From Political Correctness

Reuters reports:

Brazil’s newly inaugurated President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday his election had freed the country from “socialism and political correctness,” and he vowed to tackle corruption, crime and economic mismanagement in Latin America’s largest nation.

Bolsonaro, a former army captain turned lawmaker who openly admires Brazil’s 1964-1985 military dictatorship, promised in his first remarks as president to adhere to democratic norms, after his tirades against the media and political opponents had stirred unease.

Brazil has seen a surge in same-sex marriages in recent weeks out of fear that Bolsonaro may try to undo the nation’s landmark 2013 ruling by the National Justice Council.
