The Brazilian Labour Renewal Party (Portuguese: Partido Renovador Trabalhista Brasileiro, PRTB) is a small right-wing and conservative Brazilian political party.

Overview[edit]

It was registered on the Superior Electoral Court on February 18, 1997.[2]

In 2006 the party gained some electoral importance because of the election of ex-President Fernando Collor de Mello, impeached in 1992, who made his comeback in national politics as a Senator.
