Brazil has been experiencing in the past two years one of the most severe political crises of its history, after the polarized 2014 presidential elections, with the losing side not accepting the results of the election and obstructing the government’s initiatives in the National Congress, which raised the tension, debilitated the government and resulted in the impeachment of president Dilma Roussef in 2016, even before she could complete half of her second term. This took place at the cost of contributing to aggravating the economic deacceleration experienced in the country, which now also combines with an acute political crisis, with accusations and revelations of several corruption scandals, involving the republican powers and almost all political parties.
