Far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro does not want a bill to overhaul Brazil’s costly pension system to be put to the vote in Congress this year because he would send it back to the drawing board if elected, a close political aide said.

Pension reform is crucial for any effort to reduce Brazil’s gaping budget deficit and out-going President Michel Temer has hoped his plan could be approved before he hands over to a successor on Jan. 1.But Onyx Lorenzoni, who is slated to become Bolsonaro’s chief of staff if the former Army captain wins a run-off later this month, said on Tuesday that Temer’s proposal should be dropped and a new plan drawn up.Bolsonaro, a conservative congressman favored by financial markets, fell just short of an outright majority in Sunday’s election. He will face leftist Fernando Haddad, a former Sao Paulo mayor, in a second round ballot on Oct. 28.Bolsonaro’s chief economic advisor Paulo Guedes, a free-market University of Chicago-trained economist, has a plan similar to Temer’s that would get Brazilians to contribute more to the pension system by introducing a minimum retirement age.Yet another close aide to Bolsonaro, former military police Major Olimpio Gomes, a Congressman who won a Senate seat on Sunday, has opposed pension reform outright. He called the current proposal in Congress an “exterminating” bill.Conflicting statements on whether to re-introduce a loathed tax on financial transactions called the CPMF or to abolish a 13th monthly salary bonus paid every year to employees in Brazil have shown that Bolsonaro has yet to come up with a coherent economic program.While his economic guru Guedes wants to zero the budget deficit in a year or two, Bolsonaro went on national television on Monday night promising to cut income taxes and offer payroll tax breaks for companies.
