MAINWARING, Scott e PEREZ LINAN, Aníbal. Party discipline in the Brazilian Constitutional Congress. Lua Nova [online]. 1998, n.44, pp. 107-136. ISSN 0102-6445. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-64451998000200006.
The question of party discipline in Brazil is examined with reference to the Constitutional Congress of 1987-88. The authors do not find evidence of a strong party discipline and examine the consequences of this. More studies such as this are urgently needed, they argue.
