Cleaning Up City Hall
“Brazilians send a powerful message in nationwide municipal elections: Straighten up or get out Brazilian voters have given notice that they are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore. In nationwide municipal elections that ended in a second round of voting on Oct. 29, they swept hundreds of incumbents out of power and replaced them with candidates who promised to clean up city hall. All in all, it was a heartening -and different– showing for a country that recently dropped from 45th to 49th on a list of countries most afflicted with corruption, published by Transparency International, a global anticorruption organization.
The big winner was the leftist Workers Party (P.T.), whose candidates have spearheaded anticorruption efforts in a variety of cities and towns, and the P.T.’s biggest prize was the mayor’s residence of São Paulo, Latin America’s biggest and wealthiest city. P.T. candidate Marta Suplicy, 55, a psychologist who formerly dispensed sexual advice on TV, beat onetime mayor and ex-governor of São Paulo state Paulo Salim Maluf of the conservative Brazilian Progressive Party, 58.5% to 41.5%. Her win was due in large part to her promise to “close the faucets of corruption.” The P.T. also won mayoralties in four other state capitals, representing around 14% of the national population. Exulted Suplicy : “We have to dismantle the corruption machine.”
It was a sobering outcome for President Fernando Henrique Cardoso’s center-right coalition, since the vote was seen as a boost for the P.T. for the next presidential contest, in 2002. What is clear, Cardoso admitted, “is that the electorate is looking for candidates with a profound concern for public morality.” The irony is that Cardoso has done a lot to help the trend.
In fact, the elections capped an upsurge of intolerance for official venality. In the past 18 months, a Federal Deputy and a Senator have been expelled from office for malfeasance, along with hundreds of mayors, state congressmen and city councilors. A new generation of federal prosecutors, an unfettered press and special anticorruption courts have all declared war against thieves in high places. Says Welson Gasparini, president of the Brazilian Association of Municipalities : “This is a sign of new times.”
