A family portrait from Brazil!

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.

Elcione Barbalho

Helder Barbalho

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.
