Is Ciro Gomes "an oligarch"?

DO NOT. The Ferreira Gomes family is, yes, one of the main political groups in Sobral, in the north of Ceará, but its characteristics are far from those used to describe the most traditional elites in the region.

Cyrus' great-grandfather was the first mayor of the city, on 1890; his grandfather, was an alderman and deputy; the father, mayor of the municipality at the end of the year 70. This intermittent participation in Sobral's political life gave the family the pecha of oligarchic coronelismo - emphasized by the elections of Ciro, Cid and Ivo Gomes for different political positions of Sobral and Ceará.

Understand the context that originated the lie:

In 2007, the Revista Piauí published a profile on the power of the Ferreira Gomes in the State. In this respect, the concept of oligarchy appears as the "political regime in which power is exercised by a small group of people, belonging to the same class or family" (the author of the article has revealed that the Houaiss dictionary statement has been withdrawn).

This definition, however, overlooks the peculiarities of the peripheral states of Brazil, where oligarchic power is not limited to group membership, but rather to economic hegemony (usually linked to land tenure) and mediatic (through the granting of radios and TVs). It is good to remember, in this sense, that the Ferreira Gomes do not have such attributes: they do not have companies and the media power of Ceará belongs totally to groups opposed to the family. Their power is therefore exhausted in politics itself.

    Se me permitem gostaria de deixar um link para um vídeo onde o próprio Ciro é questionado sobre o tema e dá sua resposta.
