Bolognesi, B., Ribeiro, E., & Codato, A.. (2023). A New Ideological Classification of Brazilian Political Parties. Dados, 66(2), e20210164. Just as democratic politics changes, so does the perception about the parties out of which it is composed. This paper’s main purpose is to provide a new and updated ideological classification of Brazilian political parties. To do so, we applied a survey to political scientists in 2018, asking them to position each party on a left-right continuum and, additionally, to indicate their major goal: to pursue votes, government offices, or policy issues. Our findings indicate a centrifugal force acting upon the party system, pushing most parties to the right. Furthermore, we show a prevalence of patronage and clientelistic parties, which emphasize votes and offices rather than policy. keywords: political parties; political ideology; survey; party models; elections

The New State in Brazil: A Study of the Dynamics of Regional Political Elites in an Authoritarian Context

Adriano Codato

This article reconstructs the logic of the reconstitution of the state-level political class during the "New State" period in Brazil. The author depict the mechanisms of political support formation by the national elite as well as the principles that guided the relationship between the regional elite and the higher echelons of the state and federal executive branches and, specifically, how the president of the Republic exercised his authoritarian prerogatives towards the regional decision-taking classes. The case of São Paulo is granted particular attention, but the political situations in Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul and Paraná are also approached. Two notions are advanced in order to understand this process: "variable geometry" and "institutionalized personalism". As a conclusion, the article challenges the idea according to which the selective politics of the conservation/renovation of directing classes must be inscribed within the cooptation of elites. The notion of political transformism is deemed more appropriate, entailing in the fabrication of a new ruling class through the selective destitution of the enemy group by the more powerful elite.

Key words: political elites; Brazilian politics; Getúlio Vargas; New State; circulation of elites
