Brazilian Junior High School Student Becomes Councilman

by Takeo Maebashi
(Tokyo)

A 17-year-old boy won a municipal election in Brazil in 2004! In Brazil, anyone aged 18 or over can run for election. The boy became a candidate when his father decided to drop out of the election race.

The boy was still a junior high school student after failing his high school exams.

I saw this news on the internet when I was learning about Brazil. At first I thought the whole thing was a joke. A 17-year-old boy would not have the right to vote in Japan. And he failed the high school exam...

What's going to be in Brazil !!
