Explaining Brazil #31 The downfall of center-right


Between 1994 and 2014, brazilian politics at the national level was dominated by two groups: the Workers’ Party (PT), to the left of the center, and the Social Democracy Party (PSDB), to the right of the center.

At first, the center-right seemed to be the dominating force. President Fernando Henrique Cardoso (PSDB) won two elections without the need of a runoff stage.

Now, many of the party’s leaders are either tarnished by corruption or have fallen into irrelevance. Lula (PT) remain the dominant force to the left, but the center-right was kicked to the curb by Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) and his extreme politics.
