This chapter examines the changes in the state and political system in Brazil during the period from 1853 to 1867. It discusses the emperor's exercise of discretionary support and intervention as the moderating power in parliament and his creation of an agenda that called for non-partisan appointments and substantive judicial and electoral reforms which represented a victory for the Party of Order. This chapter highlights the government's focus on financial institutions to support urban improvements and considers the issues of opportunism and partisan mobilization.

Keywords:   political system, Brazil, emperor, parliament, non-partisan appointments, electoral reforms, Party of Order, urban improvements, opportunism, partisan mobilization
