SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – In less than one week and a half, 142.8 million eligible voters will cast their ballots in Brazil. Citizens will cast their vote for President, the governor of one of the 27 states, almost half of the Senate and all of the representatives for the Chamber of Deputies.
Executive officers as well as federal and state representatives are elected to a four-year term, while senators are elected to eight-year terms. In Brazil, officials elected for the executive branch are only allowed to run for one re-election . . .
