Jair Bolsonaro’s Personal Information
Jair Messias Bolsonaro is a Brazilian politician and retired military officer who has been the 38th president of Brazil since 1 January 2019.
Jair Bolsonaro was elected in 2018 as a member of the conservative Social Liberal Party before cutting ties with it.
From 1991 to 2018, Bolsonaro served in Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies, representing the state of Rio de Janeiro.
Jair Bolsonaro was born in the town of Glicerio, in the state of Sao Paulo.
Jair Bolsonaro graduated from the Agulhas Negras Military Academy in 1977 and served in the Brazilian Army’s field artillery and parachutist units.
He became known to the public in 1986 when he wrote an article for Veja magazine criticizing low wages for military officers, after which he was arrested and detained for 15 days.
A year later, the same magazine accused him of planning to plant bombs in military units, which he denied.
After being convicted by a lower court, the Brazilian Supreme Military Court acquitted him in 1988.
Jair Bolsonaro moved to the reserve in 1988 with the rank of captain and ran for the Rio de Janeiro City Council that year, elected as a member of the Christian Democratic Party.
In 1990, Bolsonaro was elected to the lower chamber of Congress and he was re-elected six times. During his 27-year tenure as a congressman, he became known for his national conservatism.
Jair Bolsonaro is a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage and homosexuality, abortion, affirmative action, drug liberalization, and secularism. In foreign policy, he has advocated closer relations with the United States and Israel.
During the 2018 Brazilian general election campaign, he started to advocate economically liberal and pro-market policies.
A polarizing and controversial politician, his views and comments, which have been described as far-right and populist, have drawn both praise and criticism in Brazil.
Bolsonaro announced his candidacy for president in March 2016 as a member of the Social Christian Party.
Jair Bolsonaro left the party in 2018 and joined the Social Liberal Party, and then launched his presidential campaign in August that year, with retired general Hamilton Mourao as his running mate.
Jair Bolsonaro portrayed himself as an outsider and a supporter of family values.
Jair Bolsonaro came in first place in the first round of the general election on 7 October 2018, with Workers’ Party candidate Fernando Haddad coming in second.
The two candidates had a runoff on 28 October 2018, and Bolsonaro was elected with 55.1% of the popular vote.
Bolsonaro placed many army officers in key positions in his cabinet. Before his inauguration, he said he would fill positions in his government based only on technical qualifications and skills rather than ideological sympathy.
During his presidency, many appointees clashed ideologically with the government.
Jair Bolsonaro’s ministers of Justice, Education, the Secretary of Government, the head of the postal service, and other government officials fell out of favor with Bolsonaro and resigned.
He focused on domestic affairs in his first months in office, dealing primarily with the fallout of the 2014 Brazilian economic crisis. The economy did recover, albeit slowly, during his first year in office, while crime rates fell sharply.
In 2019, Bolsonaro left the Social Liberal Party amid a confrontation with other members and formed the Alliance for Brazil.
During his presidency, he rolled back protections for Indigenous groups in the Amazon rainforest and facilitated its destruction through deforestation.
Bolsonaro’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil was criticized across the political spectrum after he sought to downplay the pandemic and its effects, opposed quarantine measures, and dismissed two health ministers while the death toll increased rapidly.
Jair Bolsonaro was born on 21 March 1955 in Glicerio, Sao Paulo, in southeast Brazil, to Percy Geraldo Bolsonaro and Olinda Bonturi.
His family is mostly of Italian descent, with some German ancestry.
On his father’s side, he is the great-grandson of Italians from Veneto and Calabria.
Bolsonaro’s paternal grandfather’s family comes from Veneto, more precisely Anguillara Veneta, in the province of Padua. His great-grandfather, Vittorio Bolzonaro, was born on 12 April 1878.
Vittorio’s parents immigrated to Brazil when he was ten, together with his siblings, Giovanna and Tranquillo.
His German ancestry came from his father’s maternal grandfather, Carl ‘Carlos’ Hintze, born in Hamburg around 1876, who immigrated to Brazil in 1883.
His maternal grandparents were born in Lucca, in Tuscany, and went to live in Brazil in the 1890s. On 21 January 2022, his mother Olinda Bonturi Bolsonaro died at age 94.
His father Percy Geraldo Bolsonaro died in 1995. Bolsonaro spent most of his childhood moving around Sao Paulo with his family, living in Ribeira, Jundiai, and Sete Barras, before settling in Eldorado, in the state’s southern region, in 1966, where he grew up with his five brothers.
His first name is a tribute to Jair da Rosa Pinto, a football player for Palmeiras at the time of Bolsonaro’s birth and who celebrated his 34th birthday on the same day.
On 22 July 2018, the PSL nominated Bolsonaro for president in the 2018 election.
The Brazilian Labour Renewal Party also endorsed him. His coalition name was ‘Brazil above everything, God above everyone.
Though contested by two lawsuits, the Superior Electoral Court of Brazil deferred them and his candidacy was made official on 6 August.
In August Bolsonaro announced that Antonio Hamilton Mourao, a retired army general, would be his running mate.
According to political pundits, Bolsonaro moderated his tone early in the campaign, taking a less aggressive and confrontational style.
Economically, he started to support less government intervention in the economy.
On the other hand, he maintained his tough stance on crime and his defense of ‘traditional family values.
Bolsonaro also said he planned to cut taxes across the board, particularly on inheritances and businesses, to generate growth and tackle unemployment.
He also promised more austerity measures and cuts in government spending but had difficulty naming the areas where he would make cuts.
He also said he would work to diminish the federal government’s size and bureaucracy by enacting a wide variety of deregulation measures.
Bolsonaro’s promises to restore security amid record high crime and to stamp out Brazil’s rampant political corruption won him huge popular support.
In October, he announced he would name liberal economist Paulo Guedes as his finance minister.
On 9 August 2018, Bolsonaro attended the first presidential debate of the year, organized by the TV network Rede Bandeirantes.
A week later, there was another debate at RedeTV!. On 28 August, he gave an interview to Jornal Nacional, Brazil’s highest-rated primetime news program, at Rede Globo.
Bolsonaro was the first presidential candidate to raise over R$1 million in donations from the public during the 2018 campaign.
In the first 59 days, he amassed an average of R$17,000 per day.
After the Workers’ Party candidate, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was arrested in April 2018, Bolsonaro became the front-runner in the election, according to all major opinion polls.
A Datafolha poll from September showed Bolsonaro as the leading candidate in the first round with 28% of vote intentions, though runoff scenarios showed him losing to Geraldo Alckmin, Fernando Haddad, and Ciro Gomes and tying with Marina Silva.
Another Datafolha poll conducted the week before election day showed a considerable surge for Bolsonaro, who had 40% of vote intentions, or 36% when null or blank vote intentions were included.
Haddad came in second with 25%, and Gomes third with 15%. The first round of the election occurred on 7 October 2018. Bolsonaro finished in first place with 46% of the popular vote.
Since he failed to win 50%, he faced the second-place finisher, Haddad, in a runoff held on 28 October 2018.
After the first round, when his victory looked certain, Bolsonaro gave a speech by video link to thousands of supporters who gathered at Paulista Avenue in Sao Paulo.
In the speech, he threatened to arrest, purge or kill ‘reds’ and ‘petals’ and promised that members of the social movements MST and MTST would be treated as ‘terrorists’.
He said: ‘This time, the clean-up will be even greater. This group, if they want to stay, will have to abide by our laws.
These red outlaws will be banned from our homeland. Either they go overseas, or they go to jail.
Petralhada, you all go to the edge of the beach. It will be a cleansing never seen in the history of Brazil’.
The ‘edge of the beach’ a Bolsonaro aide later confirmed, was a reference to a Navy base at Restinga da Marambaia, in Rio de Janeiro State, where the Brazilian military dictatorship tortured and killed dissidents.
The speech was widely condemned by rivals, journalists, and politicians. Bolsonaro won the runoff election with 55.13% of the votes and was elected the 38th president of Brazil.
He took office on 1 January 2019. During the campaign, academics repeatedly raised concerns about the consequences of Bolsonaro’s rise in the Brazilian democracy.
In the news magazine Foreign Policy, Federico Finchelstein, a historian at the New School for Social Research who specializes in fascism, wrote, ‘Bolsonaro’s vocabulary recalls the rhetoric behind Nazi policies of persecution and victimization.
But does sounding like a Nazi make him a Nazi? Insomuch as he believes in holding elections, he is not there yet. However, things could change quickly if he gains power.’
Jason Stanley, a Yale philosopher who has published widely on Nazism, said that Bolsonaro ‘uses more tactics associated with fascism than American president Donald Trump’ Harvard’s Steven Levitsky said that Bolsonaro ‘is authoritarian’ but not a fascist. Similar concerns were raised by analysts in Portugal and Brazil.
Others, such as Marxist historian Perry Anderson, dismissed the ‘fascist’ and ‘populist’ labels altogether.
Another highly controversial aspect of the campaign was the alleged use of illegal digital communication strategies by some of Bolsonaro’s most important financial supporters.
According to an investigation by Folha de S.Paulo, one of Brazil’s best-selling newspapers, ‘Bolsonaro has been getting an illegal helping hand from a group of Brazilian entrepreneurs who are bankrolling a campaign to bombard WhatsApp users with fake news about Haddad.’
The suspicions led to a formal investigation by electoral authorities and the Federal Police; Bolsonaro and allies denied any wrongdoing.
Another controversial point was that Taíse Feijo, now an adviser in Bolsonaro’s government, was among those paid to feed fake news to his supporters.
