    Background: VICE PRESIDENT JOAO GOULART OF BRAZIL, HELD HIGH-LEVEL DISCUSSIONS WITH ADVISERS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF POLITICAL PARTIES AT HIS RANCH SEPT 6.

    SHOUTS OF "JANGO JANGO" (HIS NICKNAME) GREETED HIM THE FOLLOWING DAY WHEN GOULART WENT TO THE CHAMBER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN BRASILIA TO BE SWORN IN AS PRESIDENT. ADMIRERS FROM THE STATE OF RIO GRANDE DO SUL, WHERE THE PEOPLE AND THE THIRD ARMY HAD RISEN IN SUPPORT OF HIS CLAIM TO THE PRESIDENCY, EMBRACED EACH OTHER IN THE CORRIDORS OF CONGRESS.

    A FEW HOURS AFTER TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE, GOULART SUBMITTED THE NAME OF TANCREDO NEVES FOR PREMIER, UNDER BRAZIL'S NEWLY ADOPTED PARLIAMENTARY SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS CURTAILED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE. THIS AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION HAD BEEN RUSHED THROUGH IN THE DAYS SINCE THE RESIGNATION OF JANIO QUADROS, A COMPROMISE THAT OVERCAME THE RESISTANCE OF THE MILITARY OPPOSITION TO THE APPOINTMENT OF GOULART, SAID TO HAVE LEFTIST TENDENCIES. HOWEVER, THE MILITARY WAS NOT REPRESENTED AT THE OATH-TAKING CEREMONY.

    DR. NEVES, A FEDERAL DEPUTY FROM MINAS GERAIS STATE, WAS MINISTER OF JUSTICE UNDER PRESIDENT VARGAS, AND A MEMBER OF THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHICH HAS THE LARGEST REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS.

    THE GENERAL OPINION IN BRAZIL IS THAT THE CRISIS CAUSED BY THE RESIGNATION OF JANIO QUADROS, NOW TOURING EUROPE, WHICH SPLIT THE ARMY AND LED THE COUNTRY TO THE BRINK OF CIVIL STRIFE, HAS NOW COME TO AN END.
