Political families have never intrigued me and it will ever! After all I also live in a country run by fathers, mothers, sons, daughters and uncles. Just that curiosity runs high when you reach a new country to see another family portrait flashing across election hoardings.
Former governor of the state of Pará in Brazil Jader Barbalho, from his humble beginnings have turned a millionaire after decades in politics. His ex-wife Elcione Barbalho is a congress woman re-elected in 2010 and their young son Helder Barbalho served as mayor of the city of Anantapur in the state of Pará at the age of 25 years! A true family portrait from the streets of the city of Belém.
