The Party of the Reconstruction of the National Order (Partido da Reedificação da Ordem Nacional, PRONA) was a nationalist political party in Brazil, founded in 1990, merged, in 2006 in Republic Party. Its electoral code was 56 and its colors were the traditional Brazilian green and yellow.
After receiving more than 1.5 million votes (the largest vote ever for any deputy) in the 2002 elections, and thus taking with him five other party members to the Parliament, the party president Enéas Carneiro failed to achieve such a success in the 2006 elections. With some 300,000 votes, he was the only São Paulo candidate elected by PRONA, and the only other party member in Congress this time will be Suely, from Rio de Janeiro.
Espousing a strong nationalism, PRONA wants Brazil to develop nuclear technology, including nuclear weapons. Its critics view it as having been influenced by Nazism or Fascism. However, one German source critical of the far right states that PRONA has not been found to have racist views. PRONA also supports increasing defense spending and rejects free trade and globalization.
Some observers believe the support PRONA has attracted in these elections reflects dissatisfaction with the established parties more than support for its program.
Thanks to a reform in the Brazilian multi-party system,the Republic Party (Partido da Republica, PR) was founded on December 21, 2006, by the merger of the Liberal Party (Partido Liberal, PL) and PRONA.
