BASTOS JUNIOR, Luiz Magno Pinto  e  SANTOS, Rodrigo Mioto dos. TAKING THE POLITICAL RIGHTS SERIOUSLY: INELEGIBILITIES AND CONTROL OF CONVENTIONALITY. Rev. direito GV [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.1, pp.223-225. ISSN 1808-2432.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1808-2432201510.

The emergence of a strong level of moralization and interference of the Judicial Power on the democratic game rules demands the reflection about the fundamental dimension of the political rights, specially, the right to be voted. In this article, I argue that almost all the hypothesis defined by the Brazilian Ineligibilities Act (Lei Complementar nr. 64/90) are not compatible with the guarantee ensured by the article 23 of American Convention on Human Rights, whereby all the citizens shall enjoy “the right and opportunity” (art. 23) to “be elected in genuine periodic elections” (art. 23, 1.b), and the exercise of this right should be restrict “only on the basis of age, nationality, residence, language, education, civil and mental capacity, or sentencing by a competent court in criminal proceedings” (art. 23.2). Because of this, all the domestic judges are authorized to deny validity to the national statute, and apply directly the conventional guarantee, despite the fact that the Brazilian Supreme Court had uphold the ineligibilities Act by a decision endowed with binding force for all the national judges.

Palavras-chave : Control of conventionality; political rights; inelegibilities act; “Ficha Limpa” act; Brazilian Supreme Court.
