Brazil faces "the risk of an electoral orgy" next year if the elections are based on popular vote, Lincoln Gordon '34, United States ambassador to Brazil, told the Dunster House Forum last night.
Gordon, formerly a professor of international economics at the Harvard Business School, said political instability still exists in Brazil. The country stands to be further disrupted in this election because of the great number of offices at stake, he predicted.
He also predicted that ex-President Kubitschek will not obtain the vote of amnesty which would permit him to run in next year's elections. The recent elections, he asserted, were not the popular defeat for President Branco which they were reported to be.
