by Prof. Maria do Socorro Sousa Braga, of Ufscar (Citation: "''The Novo Party is a legend that not only represents the right as does not hide its position. While other conservative associations never clearly assume the political spectrum where they operate, positioning itself as one ashamed right, the NOVO does not deny what it is''")
The program of the party focuses on the defense of a democratic state which preserves Civil liberties, incentivizes Entrepreneurship and the participation of the citizen on the political life. The main objective of the party, according to the founders, is to secure economic liberty, as well as "ending privileges" instead of "protecting an elite".
