Matteo Salvini, owner of the Italian far right and strong man of the government in Rome, also greeted in the night the victory of Jair Bolsonaro. The Italian Minister for the Interior hopes for by the same occasion the extradition of the former militant of far left Cesare Battisti, condemned for murder in Italy.

The government of far right of Jair Bolsonaro, elected official chair Brazil Sunday, “will change the economic model of the country” thanks to a great program of privatizations and more control of the public expenditure. These remarks emanate from Paulo Guedes, announced like the future Minister of Finance.
Paulo Guedes revealed that the Bolsonaro government would concentrate as of its taking of, in January, on the reform of the retirements, very unpopular but considered crucial by the mediums of business to reduce the debt.
The federal parquet floor of Brasilia (MPF) opened a second investigation for fraud in 15 days against Paulo Guedes, economic council ultra–liberal of the favourite of the presidential election in Brazil Jair Bolsonaro, one learned Friday from legal source, at two days of the second turn.
The two investigations enter within the framework of the Greenfield operation, which revealed a network of diversion of pension funds of banks and public enterprises.
The MPF suspects Mr. Guedes, 69 years, of “fraudulent management” of pension funds. It is in particular shown to have invoiced commissions in an “abusive” way.
Commissions which would have allowed its company to touch 152.9 million réais of 2009 to 2014 (approximately 65 million dollars to the average rate of 2014).
On October 10th, a first investigation had been open starting from “ serious indices” according to which between February 2009 and June 2013 several directors of pension funds “could have joined” Paulo Guedes “to make offences of fraudulent management or negligence”.
Bolsonaro, which made vote only two laws in 27 years of delegation, arrives in charge of a country of 208 million inhabitants without any experiment of the power, like its future ministers.
Once installed in the palace of Planalto in Brasilia, the former captain will have also extremely to make to restick the pieces of a country which was fractured deeply.
The list is long the Brazilian ones which has what to be anxious future after the aggressive declarations of the Bolsonaro candidate who had said to want to control “for the majority, not for the minority”.
Most optimistic think that this admiror of the military dictatorship (1964–85) will once give up his rhetoric with vitriol with the power. But of others see it controlling in a very ideological way and making take a vertiginous turn in Brazil.
