LIMONGI, Fernando. Democracy in Brazil: presidentialism, party coalitions and the decision making process.Traduzido porEoin Paul O'Neil. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0101-3300.

There is no reason to treat the Brazilian political system as singular. Coalitions obey and are governed by party principles. The president, whose institutional power was enhanced by the 1988 Constitution, has a monopoly over legislative initiative, which approximates the Brazilian system to the European parliamentary democracies. Even though it is based upon empirical data, this essay formulates theoretical problems, such as the importance of institutional choices and how these impact on relations between the majority and minority in democratic governments.

Palavras-chave : political system; democracy; democratic theory; presidentialism.
