AGUIAR, Monique Florencio de. Links for public employment and refusals of links: the favor and the right. Cuad. antropol. soc. [online]. 2011, n.34, pp.51-68. ISSN 1850-275X.

In this paper I intend to explain how the political competition, in the town of Cardoso Moreira, influences the beliefs of the residents and how the rift between the civil servants manifests itself. Furthermore, I explore the relationship of high dependence between the rulers and the ruled, in particular when it is related to the granting of public employment. I have noted that the locals try to deceive, through discursive strategies, the submission applied by the political representatives. It is from these strategies that the locals seek a greater degree of freedom and equality and then negotiate their support and resources.

Keywords : political exchanges; civil service; political competition; political dependency; political constraints.
