Democracia brasileira, no momento das eleições de 2002

Artigo não publicado, escrito nos dias que se seguiram às eleições presidenciais de outubro de 2002, e apenas publicado nesta página.


Abstract. A short evaluation of the Brazilian democracy in the aftermath of the 2002 presidential elections. These elections demonstrated that democracy is consolidated, and that the political system is in transition from an elites democracy to a public opinions democracy. A good administration is not assured, but concerns about populism or inconsequent left policies are ill founded.
