Ciro Gomes and the National Congress

The Brazilian Congress and its dynamics of operation

The current congress is still heterogeneous with respect to its groups and members. It is possible to be said that it divides, for example, between three nuclei: a first of which are part prepared paintings, of serious public spirit; a second nucleus composed of groups that will seek their own interests and shadows; and a third group whose actions will move closer to the first or second group, depending on the signaling they are receiving from the central axes of the government, that is, the executive branch.

The Coalition Presidentialism according to Ciro Gomes

As political forces organize themselves today, "coalition presidentialism" has been based only on practical reasons: to have more television time in political campaigns and to gather votes to stop investigations and CPIs. This is what we can conclude when we take, for example, the last governments formed from coalitions because, even so organized, these governments were not able to lead and approve any great constitutional reform - that is, what was the positive purpose for the government and the people in forming a coalition?

Dialogue with Congress and with the people: how can it be?

The president must negotiate with the whole national congress, have their members a good reputation or not, for they are, in any case, the leaders to whom the people have given their vote. Even in the face of a congress that shows little legitimacy and unfavorable, it is possible to negotiate without transgressing ethical or moral limits (without yielding to undue pressures and interests) and, if there are grounds for doubt about the conduct of congressmen at the base of government, those involved should be investigated, reported and, if necessary, removed.

Dialogue with the people: how can it be

The central problems of the Republic can be solved in a substantially democratic way, with a broad debate, agreed with the population. If the President of the Republic mobilizes the popular force of his mandate to foment the national debate on central issues, joint hegemonic action will be created, capable of resisting unwarranted attacks that try to distort the debate.

As part of this agreed relationship between politics and the people, political campaigns should be spaces for discussion of proposals and paths in the name of solving national problems. This would involve the people having the opportunity to understand and discuss with the candidates which project Brazil will follow, which course it will follow and which interests the country will serve.

Referenda and plebiscites

In addition, it should be borne in mind that, at a time when the difference between what reality shows and what marketing is trying to achieve becomes clear, the government may end up losing popular support. We must demystify the role of coalitional presidentialism in the country's power and evolve, as far as possible, from a representative democracy to a participatory democracy - as the Constitution already points out, on the paths that would best serve the people.

Therefore, in the impasses, one must immediately and directly summon the population through referendums and plebiscites. The Brazilian mainstream media routinely vilify these measures as "leftist" practices of Latin American countries (by assigning them the "Chavista" and "Bolivarian" adjectives) as if countless countries around the world, including Europeans and Americans , did not make use of these mechanisms.

Cyrus and the Legislative Branch

In 2006, Ciro Gomes was the federal deputy elected with the highest percentage of votes, for the state of Ceará. During this period, there were frequent in the national congress the procedures and proposals that sought to benefit small groups at the service of major interests, under the tutelage of figures that today became well known by Brazilians. Despite this, even during this period, attempts were repeatedly denounced to negotiate that took shape in the halls of the own federal chamber of deputies.
