Jair Bolsonaro wins Brazilian presidential election in victory for the far right

US President Donald Trump speaks from the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington DC

There might be a "slight effect Bolsonaro" in neighbouring countries, particularly those who have experienced dictatorships, "but each country has its own dynamics which shape its political destiny".

Right-wing media cheered Bolsonaro's win, including Fox News (Rob Schmitt said on Fox and Friends that Brazilians got "change" with "the Trump of the tropics") and The Daily Caller (Jason Hopkins praised Bolsonaro's tough stance on crime and economic reforms).

"Democracy must be able to endure a candidate like Bolsonaro", said Martin Duisberg, vice-president of the German-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in Sao Paulo.

"The exact details of how his administration plans to achieve (its) objectives are limited", wrote Fitch analysts led by Shelly Shetty.

Their families claimed the sisters had been missing since August 24 after leaving the shelter in Fairfax. Saudi officials are still looking into whether Rotana and Tala applied for asylum, the official added.


But he also is very much a product of a political tempest in Brazil that made his messages less marginalised: widespread anger at the political class amid years of corruption, an economy that has struggled to recover after a punishing recession and a surge in violence.

Brazilian voters hung their hopes on a populist savior in closely-watched weekend elections, sweeping firebrand personality Jair Bolsonaro into the presidential office in a move that has human rights activists and those fearful of a return to authoritarianism on edge.

Days before Sunday's election, Bolsonaro back-peddled slightly, saying he would not pull the country out if Brazil's sovereignty was maintained - which could be interpreted in many ways.

German diplomatic circles are equally blasé and are awaiting Mr. Bolsonaro's first moves as president.

And Bolsonaro shares Trump's assertive pushback against a rising China.

"(Bolsonaro) is a soldier", Mariscal said.

Mauricio Santoro, a political scientist with Rio de Janeiro State University, said he was concerned that Brazil would not soon dispel the tense and occasionally violent atmosphere that enveloped the polarizing campaign. For example, Brazil is set to host a summit next year of the so-called BRICS nations, the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Bolsonaro won 55.2 percent of votes in a run-off election against left-wing hopeful Fernando Haddad of the Workers Party (PT), who garnered 44.8 percent, according to electoral authority TSE. Tens of thousands have crossed into Brazil on its northern border.

Brazil is the world's top exporter of beef and second-largest exporter of soybeans and, with China and Islamic countries as vital markets, he may need to think twice about the impact of his actions, Velasco said.

She expressed ire over it during her 2016 tour, telling the crowd of thousands: "It's Streisand, soft, like "sand". "I get scared. The British comedian had some amusing moments with the 76-year-old singing legend as she admitted that she's not the best driver.


In the run-up to the election, Bolsonaro, whose first foreign visits would be to Chile, Israel and the USA - that according to him "share our worldview" - has said: "The future ministry will come from the productive sector".
