20180922_160512

Jair Bolsonaro has secured victory votes  in the country’s presidential election.

The race was between Bolsonaro and his leftist rival, Fernando Haddad.

Bolsonaro pledged to make Brazil stronger by putting an end to corrupt practices such as wasteful government spending on the poor to gain their support.

Haddad promised to protect workers and expand such assistance to the poor.

Sixty-three-year-old Bolsonaro is a political veteran. During his time as a Congressman, he expanded his support base among middle-income earners and the wealthy by insisting on the people’s right to possess firearms.

I have just received greetings from the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, alongside Ambassador Yossi Shelley. Our bonds of friendship will translate into agreements where our peoples will be the greatest beneficiaries.
