The article is divided into three parts. Moreover, the PT was then giovnani biggest opposition party and fully conscious of that role.

Finally, in our concluding comments, we shall resume our discussion about the Brazilian institutional arrangement in light of the analysis undertaken in this article.

Based on attitudinal data from deputies, Carvalho strives to show that both the partisan and distributive approaches should be employed to understand deputies’ behavior in Congress. The government favored the fusion amendment 4, presented as a substitute for the whole PEC 40, and, naturally, the proposal in the second round.

As we have already pointed out, the executive won all votes analyzed in this work. The point of change which must draw the attention of any researcher refers to the behavior of leftist deputies in comparison with their counterparts in PSDB and PFL. To begin with, the electorate votes for two legislative houses using distinct electoral rules. Dados43 3: Cambridge, Cambridge University Press.

Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press. The behavior of its deputies on the floor did not depend on the operation of institutional mechanisms exogenous to the party. In spite of the electoral growth of the left in general, and of his party specifically, Lula could not build in a majority coalition purely through electoral means. The scores were as follows: For governors the key issue is to create favorable condition for the exercise of what they may consider “a good government”.

Therefore, the possibility of getting votes outside the governing coalition became a decisive variable for the success of the agenda under analysis.

Additionally, the stance assumed by PFL is a case in point of state arena’s influence, referred earlier in this article. Rio de Janeiro, Revan.

Political Science Quarterlyvol. Journal of Theoretical Politics5 1: This strategy was simply not available to the party.


In order to achieve this, he will be willing to mobilize resources at his disposal in other arenas, such as patronage posts and budgetary resources, within the executive, and use of his popularity, in the societal arena. American Journal of Political Science It may be supposed that any alignment of PFL with the PT-led government would damage much more its image than the movement towards more substantive policy positions.

The two stages of social security reform analyzed in this article share all the features of discontinuous decision-making settings discussed above. Two causes may be highlighted to explain why the PT-led administration had so few confrontations on the floor. All accounted for, some comrades opted to march with their people into this other arena. The former petition aimed at the suppression of the retiree’s contribution, while the latter targeted the reform’s cut in the pensions left by deceased public servants.

The members of the original electoral coalition exercised greater discipline than the parties that joined them later: The dynamics at play is largely as follows: For these authors, the current institutional arrangement is unable to promote the equilibrium between desirable attributes of democracy such as stability, representation and accountability, since the prevalence of the first attribute has led revisittada a poor performance of Brazilian democracy in the last two.

The Journal of Politics67 1: The Journal of Politics64 2: According to Giovvanni”no attempt at social security reform achieved so much, in so short time”. In spite of its central place in the opposition, the Sartork favored the administration in all votes considered here.

The rise to power and the ensuing adoption of a reformist agenda caused a shock in the party’s cohesion, teorria it to resort to the available disciplinary tools. The costs of opposing for the sake of opposing a reform that it tried to carry out and did not succeed would be higher than a recommendation favoring Lula’s proposal, the course of action ultimately taken by PSDB even though its indiscipline went up, as we showed, in the states where the party had no governors.

This “clearing” benefited the PT-led government, which could concentrate its efforts in two issues: Even though a broad consensus had been built in Brazilian society concerning the inevitability of a reform, there were bitter controversies as to its extent, timing and on whom most costs should fall on.


Agora8, Buenos Aires. The reverse is represented by two factors which are, in the view of Figueiredo and Limongieresponsible for the striking differences in performance between current Brazilian presidential system and its previous version in the former democratic period In their analysis of the congressional budget process, Pereira and Mueler come to the conclusion that the executive is constrained to make more concessions than what it would like in order to secure the support of its coalition.

As one can gather from these data, the impact of governors on the party caucus in the Chamber was considerably smaller than in the case of PFL. The first round of the reform took place from 6 to 13 August, Hence the cohesive and disciplined party from opposition times simply split once in office. One should also acknowledge that, in contrast with the PT, the PSDB had had in the social security reform one of the cornerstones of its ideology. Naturally, strategies and resources are different for each legislator, depending on his ideological persuasion, party affiliation and membership either in the governing coalition or in the opposition.

In all the roll-calls, the percentage of deputies who followed the party’s recommendation was based on the caucus, not only on those present on the floor. However, the scenario would be entirely different had Lula been the winner in As we showed in a previous section, the PFL split down the middle and, tellingly, where the party held governorships most deputies aligned themselves with the state government.

It is known that in opposition it is always easier for any party to be consistent with its own ideology and program. When in office, the PSDB did not succeed as the PT did in stage twoin coupling the social security game with its tax teorja counterpart. Rio de Janeiro, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
