Bolsonaro’s new chief of staff says will fight hunger and poverty in Brazil

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil’s incoming presidential chief of staff Ciro Nogueira said on Wednesday that the government will launch an ambitious social program to fight hunger and poverty ahead of next year’s elections.

Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro has said he will increase the popular Bolsa Familia welfare plan that benefits millions of poor Brazilians. Bolsonaro swore in Nogueira as his closest aide, bringing the center-right politician into his cabinet to shore up dwindling support in Congress.
