Rio de Janeiro, August 1 (RHC) -- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff unveiled on Thursday that the slogan of her re-election campaign is: "Truth will beat pessimism."
The slogan is a reference to the president's now frequent claims that pessimism is being instilled into the minds of the public by her adversaries, who said that the country is much worse than it actually is.
"The true facts will beat pessimism, and the facts are out there," the president said during a radio interview.
Rousseff said there is a campaign to deliberately create pessimistic economic expectations, stressing that pessimistic predictions, such as an exchange rate crisis, did not come true.
The Brazilian president said: "The exchange rate crisis did not happen. Now someone has claimed that there will be a tax crisis. There is, today, a deliberate process of creating negative expectations which is damaging the country."
Rousseff also said that the inflation rate will not exceed the target set for this year, stressing that she will focus on a tax reform if she wins a second term.
