Brazilians protest against Bolsonaro, demand he respects democracy

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has stood by her refusal to supply weapons to Saudi Arabia until the murder of dissident Jamal Khashoggi is clarified

Brazil's president-elect Jair Bolsonaro says he wants the country's best-known anti-corruption judge to be justice minister or to serve on the Supreme Court.

Barbosa said "so far, they have only robbed our country".

"The US relations with Brazil are usually already good, so it is essentially a matter of style", said Joel Velasco, from the cabinet of council in strategy, diplomatic Albright Stonebridge Group.

At 4.53 percent, inflation is now near the middle of the bank's target range of 2.5 to 6.5 percent, and Sunday's election win by debt hawk Bolsonaro further bolstered the argument to keep the rate on hold.

The former leader is now serving 12 years behind bars, which led the courts to bar his presidential run.

The UOL news portal, owned by the Grupo Folha, which also controls the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper, used Brazil's freedom of information act as the basis for a 2015 article that showed Globo received 565 million reais in federal government spending in 2014. "We can't go from a victory at the ballot box to chaos in Congress", Guedes told journalists.

"If (Bolsonaro) decides to move forward with his pledges against the environment, indigenous peoples and the climate, his fellow citizens will be the biggest victims", said Carlos Rittl, executive secretary of the Brazilian Climate Observatory.

Trump congratulated Bolsonaro by telephone, tweeting that the two had an "excellent" call and agreed "that Brazil and the United States will work closely together on trade, military and everything else!"

Bolsonaro, who openly admires Brazil's former military dictatorship and shocked many with his derogatory remarks on women, LGBT people and people of color, remained vague about the environment during campaigning.

Bolsonaro himself was stabbed in the abdomen at a rally last month and will need to undergo surgery in mid-December to remove a colostomy bag before he can travel to Santiago and Washington.

Brazil and South Africa share membership of the important BRICS and IBSA formations.

In his first interviews as president-elect, Bolsonaro said he hoped to start passing "at least part" of his proposed pension reform this year.

Brazil's right-wing candidate Bolsonaro of the Social Liberal Party won the country's presidential run-off on Sunday, with a 55.13 percent of the valid votes against 44.87 percent for his rival Fernando Haddad of the left-leaning Workers' Party. He will oversee the transition from Rio this week and fly to the capital Brasilia next week, Lorenzoni added.

"The PT elected Bolsonaro", he said in an interview published Wednesday. He said the Temer government may approve the deal before leaving.
