Not even the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT) could evade  the perverse logic of opportunism, which is one of the hallmarks of Brazilian politics.

PT now is in love with its traditional foe senator Renan Calheiros (PMDB, the same party as President Michel Temer) of the small state of Alagoas.

On Wednesday (Oct.31), PT in Alagoas decided  to join the political coalizion  of governor Renan Filho (Son of Calheiros) , also of the PMDB.

The PT affiliates – stinging enemies of the PMDB and Temer – justify the  odd alliance with the explanation that it is necessary to electorally enable the party in the 2018 elections.
