Brazil’s Senate has formed a “Parliamentary Front Against Gambling,” a move that the Front’s leader believes indicates the Senate will have difficulty passing the country’s broad gambling legalization measure.
After being accepted by Senator Eduardo Giro of Podemos, the project was created in a single-round vote last week.
“I visited nations, spoke with academics, spoke with inspection and control institutions both inside and outside Brazil, and I was outraged by what is behind gambling: a very powerful lobby that destroys entire lives and families,” Giro stated when introducing the motion.
Senator Angelo Coronel was the lone dissenting vote.
