Government paid 5 installments of R$ 600 from April to August of that year; president today runs against time to approve benefits 3 months before the elections
The R$ 600 Emergency Aid distributed by the government in 2020, in the pandemic, took about 4 months to have a positive effect on the president’s assessment. Jair Bolsonaro (PL), according to data from the PowerDate at the time.
The money began to be distributed in April of that year. There were 5 high value installments (R$ 600), until August. then the voucher dropped to R$300 by December. The rate “excellent” or “Good” to the name of Bolsonaro accompanied this movement and registered a decrease in the period. Rejection rose. In 2021, the government carried out a 2nd round of the assistance program – with payments from R$150 to R$375.
Now, in 2022, the president is trying to approve in Congress an increase of R$200 in the Brazil aid –replacement of Bolsa Família, an income transfer program closely associated with the governments of the EN. The government’s objective is to flood around 18 million families with payments of R$ 600. But there is a problem: the elections are in 87 days –or 2 months and 25 days.
The PEC discussed by the deputies and senators also releases other benefits, such as double gas vouchers and aid of R$ 1,000 to self-employed truck drivers. The measure has an estimated cost of BRL 41.3 billion outside the spending ceiling.
The last round of the survey PowerDate, held from July 3 to 5, 2022, showed that Bolsonaro has been recovering sympathy from part of the electorate that receives money from the government. Of the beneficiaries of Auxílio Brasil, 46% now approve of its administration. And 37% say they will vote for the current president against Squid (EN) in October. The PT had been leading this group alone, but lost support in recent months.
The bet of politicians close to Bolsonaro is that the money directed to the most needy reverse Lula’s wide advantage in this social stratum and give a up in the government candidacy.
for the ex-minister john rome (Citizenship), the “improvement in the evaluation is nothing more than the population’s recognition of the government’s social policies”.
As the infographics above indicate, however, the deadline for Bolsonaro to roll back the package of benefits into a vote is tight.
