Vigoncalves86 (aka the Black Sheep or Vigon) is brazilian politician.
He was born in Brazil, on day 833 of the New World, Vigoncalves86 has played a key role in brazilian politics since his first days.
First Country Presidency, August, 2010
In his third try in a role, Vigoncalves86 got elected as the first President of the oposition after 12 months and the second of the eBrazil's history. It was a good month, despite the recent V2 changes, which made the military activity to be low compared to other months.
It was a hard time for the brazilian government, with the lowest taxes contributions ever, after many players left the game on the V2. The principal changes were the cut of army salaries, renegotiation of MPPs and renegotiation of brazilian deths in PHOENIX alliance, after wasting more 1,5k gold in a war against Spain to free mexican regions.
Despite all the dificulties, the BRL rate was easily controlled, with the gold costing 40-48 BRL.
Also, it was the first President of eBrazil to officialy support non-governmental militias.
Second Country Presidency, November, 2010
The second time of Vigoncalves86 as President of eBrazil was completely diferent of the first one. He got elected after a Impeachment and got a country in the middle of a huge war against Spain. The military costs were higher then ever and for the first time a President determinated a daily budget for military support.
Thanks to the great leadership of the High Command, the brazilian army became a hope for all the countries eBrazil had MPP with, since it didn't lost a single battle during 20h-4h erep time. The was a great effort from Olorum, Mulauca, Oliveira Giv and other members of that team.
During that month, the relations between eBrazil and eHungary got cold inside PHOENIX and the country signed MPP with the United States for the first time, after they supported the invasion of eSouth Africa to get usefull resources.
Third Country Presidency, June, 2011
The third time of Vigoncalves86 as President of eBrazil was a failure. In his campaign he called people to work with him during the month. However, after eBrazil got attacked by Peru and Spain, the ONE alliance put its efforts to erase eBrazil from the map and the whole month became the brazilian dark days.
Forth Country Presidency, August, 2012
After more then a year, Vigoncalves86 got elected once again, in a simples election against no competitors. Brazil had an open war against Indonesia, to free Australia from their attackers, but the game changed after admins implemented Airstrike on the first days of his government. Bulgaria attacked Bolivia and started a campaign against Argentina. 22 days focusing on this single war, to support Argentina.
Even the discussions about the CTRL project (Brazil, USA, Spain and Poland) got stucked for this war. It was a safe month for Brazil on the military field, but not on the diplomatic field, with the EDEN pressure against the idea of a new alliance, the argentine pressure to force Brazil to propose Bulgaria as a Natural Enemy (which would make Brazil lose a few important MPPs) and a internal battle between the CAT and the Trolls militia.
The term was fine and Vigoncalves86 got reelected.
Fifth Country Presidency, September, 2012
In a fair dispute, Vigoncalves86 got reelected for his fifth term. The pressure from a few groups who disliked some diplomatic decision of the government started to grow, even using PTOers to increase the speech. Dealing with the pressure of EDEN, Argentina, Colombia, Croatia, Portugal and brazilian militias, the president kept his decisions and didn't take a turn on the strategy, despite foreign opinions about it.

Elected 14 times (4 with Progressistas and 10 with ODIN), Vigoncalves86 fought for many acomplishments the congress improved as the Citizenship Comission, the Fiscalization Comission and the use of the congress journal. He was leader of his party seats, before he joined the government and started to work as minister in june.
Was responsible of the impeachment of RizonPT, in september, 2011, after the CP took wrong decisions with the country money.
Progressistas, the brazilian polarization
When he joined the game, the TOP 5 parties were: PDB, PIL, PM, UB and PND. Despite all the noise UB used to do, there was no concrete oposition to PDB and its allies, which became the third bigest party from the whole eRepublik during that time.
To create that polarization, Vigoncalves and 3 other friends founded the party PROGRESSISTAS, on day 816, which became a TOP 5 party in less then two weeks. In the same month, the party won 8 congressmen seats and became the main oposition of the current government. As a member of Progressistas, Vigoncalves86 won 4 congressman elections and became Country President for the first time. Even as leader of the oposition, Vigoncalves86 was nominated Minister of Comunications twice before he won his first Country President election, showing he was opened to diferent opinions and with the single goal of helping his country.
Unfortunately, the history between Vigoncalves86 and the party he founded had an end in September, 2010, after the party did a fusion with another, called Bazzinga, and changed names to ANP (Aliança Nacional Progressista) and he left a few days later.
