  • Bolsonaro risks fragmenting his base

The program of the new party states that it prioritizes "respect for God and religion" along with "defending the rights to life, justifiable defense and family" and upholds the right to possess firearms.

Bolsonaro would now become the APB's party president while his eldest son, Senator Flavio Bolsonaro, would be its vice president.

The approval rating of Bolsonaro's government has suffered of late.

APB now need to collect about 500,000 signatures during the next six months to be able to sign up for next year's municipal elections.

At the convention, Bolsonaro commented on the steps necessary for the party to be officially acknowledged by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), so that it can participate in the upcoming elections.

On Tuesday, the president officially left the Social Liberal Party (PSL), to which he was affiliated for less than two years.

It's the ninth time that the 64-year-old Bolsonaro, a former army captain, has changed parties in his three-decade political career.

The retired military officer had gained the support of conservative white evangelical voters to win last year's election on his promises to stop the legalization of abortion, gay marriage and the use of marijuana.

Bolsonaro's relationship with PSL leadership reached breaking point in recent months as they fought for control over its sizeable campaign funds.

Jair Bolsonaro announces his new party.

The PSL, which had been roiled by internal tensions for weeks, ultimately imploded - Bolsonaro is hoping that 30 or so lawmakers will leave and join his new Alliance. However, under Brazilian electoral laws, the signatures have to be collected physically on paper.

His APB was launched under the banner of fighting graft and advancing Christian values, a breakaway move that could fragment his base.
