Bolsonaro does not mention the LGBT+ community in his program. Regarding indigenous people, he claims their “freedom” to make “responsible use” of natural resources, “balancing environmental protection with fair and sustainable economic growth.”
And those of Lula da Silva?
Lula, for his part, promises to launch a “renewed and expanded” Family Grant, adding to the 600 reais a month another 150 reais (560 pesos) for each child under six years of age.
His economic proposal is based on public investment and the improvement of the minimum wage (1,212 reais, 4,500 pesos) to restore the purchasing power of Brazilians in the face of high inflation.
The historic leader of the Workers’ Party (P) is also considering implementing a tax reform “so that the poor pay less and the rich pay more.”
Lula has said that he will draw up a plan to reduce the indebtedness that affects almost 70% of Brazilian families.
He proposes new labor legislation “to expand social protection”, reversing the “setbacks” of a 2017 reform.
Lula promises to combat illegal mining, fires and deforestation in the Amazon jungle head-on, strengthening the preservation and control bodies, weakened during the Bolsonaro administration.
It also intends to unlock the millionaire resources of the Amazon Fund, financed by Norway and Germany and paralyzed since 2019.
