Brazil’s Congress has taken a major step towards reforming the country’s bloated pension system, a priority for President Jair Bolsonaro.
In the first of two votes, the bill passed the lower house with a clear majority.
Supporters say the measures are needed to prevent another recession but there are many who oppose it.
