The Brazilian Green Party ("Partido Verde", PV) was constituted after the military dictatorship period and, like other Green Parties around the world, is committed to establishing a set of policies on ensuring social-democracy and sustainable development. One of the party's founding members was the journalist and former anti-dictatorship revolutionary Fernando Gabeira (a federal deputy since 1995).


Among the main items on PV's agenda are Federalism, environmentalism, human rights, a form of Direct Democracy, Parliamentarism, welfare, civil liberties, pacifism and marijuana legalization.

The party, however, argues be in a position on the political spectrum that supposedly goes beyond the issue "left-right", considered by its members as anachronistic and unrealistic. This is revealed in contraditoriedade accused of their alliances (both related to antagônicos parties in various spheres) from its critics. Many critics believe also that the party broke the limit not to be a small party set in the context of the "legends of rent" (used by political parties only to be elected). This image is rejected by one of the theoreticians of the party, Tibor Rabóczkay, in the book "Repensando the Brazilian Green Party," with the argument that the Ciranda of changes in legend is so common in the parties' big ', as in small. The author, however, acknowledges that in the effort to achieve the 5% barrier imposed by the clause ( "law of exclusion policy" in the words of Rabóczkay), the party has just opened its doors to politicians who lack proper training ideological ecologist and consequently , Tend to be amorphous benches from the green.


The Green Party Brazilian sugiu in January 1986.It was founded by environmentalists and other activists from social movements, taking as their most expressive leaders Carlos Minc, who soon returned to the PT, Fernando Gabeira, Alfredo Sirkis, Domingos Fernandes, Jose Luiz de France Penna and Mr Sarney Filho.

Representation in government

The party has no major political force in the country, unlike some of its similar Europeans (as the Green Party of Germany). For a long time its sole representative in Congress was the National Deputy Federal Fernando Gabeira, the rule of RJ (1995-1998, 1999-2002; after brief period in PT, Gabeira returned to PV in 2005). During twenty-eight months from 2003, the party formed the basis of government support Lula, breaking in the second half of May 2005, stating general dissatisfaction with the environmental policies of the current government.
