Brazil's soft coup
ブラジルのソフトなクーデターとは
Not so long ago Brazil was a country with both a booming economy and an enviably progressive set of social policies.

Today, almost exactly one year since Dilma Rousseff’s ‘impeachment’ (which many call a ‘coup’), Brazil is in social, political and economic meltdown.

Nothing is predictable. At various points, while researching this month’s Big Story, it looked like Brazil’s corruption-mired Michel Temer could not possibly hold on to the top job. At the time of writing, he is still in place.

Then there is the case of ex-president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who could win next year’s presidential elections – or could be in prison.


ブラジルはつい最近まで、著しい経済成長とうらやむほど進歩的な社会政策の両方を享受する国と見られていた。

だが、ジルマ・ルセフの「罷免」(多くの人々はこれを「クーデター」だと言う)からほぼ1年たった現在、ブラジルは社会的、政治的、経済的にも崩壊した状態にある。

今後どうなるかは全く予想できない。今月号の取材を進める中で、汚職疑惑にあえぐブラジルのミシェル・テメル大統領がその地位にとどまることが困難であることは、さまざまな場面で感じられた。この原稿執筆時、彼はまだその職にある。

そして、ルイス・イナシオ・ルラ・ダ・シルヴァ元大統領の裁判の行方だ。彼が出馬すれば来年の大統領選で当選できるかもしれないが、一方では有罪となって刑務所に収監される可能性もある。

訳注:現在収賄罪で裁判中のルラ元大統領は、今年5月の公判に出廷した際、2018年の次期大統領選へ出馬する意向を示した。
