Brazil’s Electoral Laws

The Economist’s coverage of Brazilian election laws praised the speed of the announced results, but also noted continuing problems with corruption, which appear to be improving with time.

“THE whizzy electronic ballot boxes that Brazil uses for elections meant that most results were announced before bedtime on polling day. But no technology can speed up the country’s courts. Just one day before the election they ruled that votes for candidates who had been barred from standing, mostly under a new anti-corruption law passed this year, should be set aside. Because of the delay, the results of this precisely tallied election are still uncertain.”

This is part of my survey of the 30 best articles from The Economist over the past two years to gain insight into whether Brazilian attitudes towards America have declined, and global attitudes towards Brazil — comments welcome!
