Brazil's Bolsonaro names infrastructure minister, another military man

SAO PAULO, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Brazil’s President-elect Jair Bolsonaro said via his Twitter account on Tuesday that longtime military engineer Tarcisio Freitas will head his infrastructure ministry once he takes office on Jan. 1.

Bolsonaro pledged massive investments for Brazil’s woeful infrastructure ahead of last month’s run-off election. Freitas, a graduate of the Black Needles military academy, is the sixth member of Bolsonaro’s cabinet to have an extensive military background. (Reporting by Brad Brooks; Editing by Dan Grebler)
