Brazilian Party of National Reconstruction
Created in February 1989 by a takeover of the Youth Party as an
election vehicle for Collor's candidacy, the conservative Party
of National Reconstruction (Partido da Reconstrução
Nacional--PRN) immediately received twenty deputies and two senators.
After Collor's election, the party increased its congressional delegation
in 1990, but had a dismal performance in the October 3 elections
that year: forty deputies and only 7 percent of the vote, and no
governors. In 1994 the party, reduced to four deputies and four
senators, elected one federal and two state deputies.
