If all goes well and President Jair Bolsonaro really stays in the PL, one of the hard core parties of the Centrão, the goal set by the group is to make a bench of around 160 deputies in the Chamber, in the next elections.
The block dreams big. Today, PP, PL and Republicans together have 115 seats.
A powerful chief of this group does the math this way: with Arthur Lira, in the Chamber, the PP would go from 41 deputies in the current administration to 55 to 60 deputies. The PL, with Bolsonaro as a candidate, would go from 43 to around 60 deputies as well. The Republicans, even without anyone, would go from 31 to 40.
Indeed, Centrão is in high heels.
