Political scientist Luciana Santana spoke of the Republic, a system that allows you to guarantee the rise of power through democratic regimes.
“When we talk about the Republic, we are referring to political options that were adopted in terms of shaping the state. We have had this model since 1889. There was an option to change, in 93, but it was not the population’s decision, through the plebiscite. And the basic difference from other models, such as the monarchy, is that the Republic is a system that allows control of public affairs, guarantees alternation of power through elections and has the values of the democratic regimes established in the country. regional and social inequalities, it is still the regime that makes changes possible. It is immensely important to think about a Republic to the detriment of other state formats”, he explained.
