Mr. Bolsonaro also indicated he would seek to loosen Brazil's gun laws this year, before he even takes office, insisting that more widespread gun ownership would help to cut crime.

He noted that Nigeria shares historical and cultural ties with Brazil.

Bolsonaro, who won 55 percent of the vote in a run-off on Sunday, issued a series of campaign pledges that left many fearing for the future of the Amazon rainforest, known as "the lungs of the planet". Thousands of Bolsonaro supporters cheered and set off fireworks outside his home in Rio de Janeiro´s beachfront Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood as his victory was announced.

In Rio de Janeiro, the most emblematic city of the country, more than 200 people marched up the stairs of the Municipal Chamber with banners such as "No More Torture" or "Not Him" and shouting slogans against Bolsonaro, a nostalgic of the military dictatorship in Brazil (1964-1985), and his ideology, Efe reported.

Bolsonaro, 63, said he planned to govern "following the teachings of God, alongside the Brazilian constitution and with good technical advice, without political leanings".

Brazil's democratic institutions have proven stable, many said, downplaying Mr. Bolsonaro's ability to undermine these institutions.

Bolsonaro was referring to the hundreds of millions of reais the Brazilian government spends in advertising each year in local media outlets, mainly for promotions of state-run firms.

"To the extent possible, we will try to have a dialogue with this government", Reis told NBC News.

Still, Fitch Ratings on Monday highlighted the "deep fiscal challenges" confronting Bolsonaro's team, as weak growth and a huge budget deficit leave little room to maneuver. "The lack of fiscal space, a high unemployment rate and a sluggish economic recovery will also likely limit economic policy options".

Third-place presidential candidate Ciro Gomes, a centre-leftist, accused the PT of aiding and abetting Bolsonaro's rise. "So, the minister of economy will include (fusion of) the finance, the planning and the industry and commerce ministry", Lorenzoni said. He promised to merge Brazil's agriculture and environment ministries into one, saying "we won't have any more fights" over ecological concerns on deforestation. "We're already late on pension reform, so the sooner the better".

On Thursday, Bolsonaro is due to meet with crusading anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro, who led the so-called "Car Wash" probe snaring big names in Brazil's political class and opening the door for Bolsonaro's tough-on-corruption campaign.

"The PT elected Bolsonaro", he said in an interview published Wednesday.
