Abstract: This papers aims at investigating the nexus between party ideology and public expenditures in the state of Minas Gerais (Brazil). Particularly, we assess if the current fiscal deficit deterioration has to do with the take over of a left-wing party in the state since 2015. To this end, we compare revenue and expenses dynamics, focusing on the results of the last triennum, when a left-wing political party (PT) replaced a more centre one (PSDB). The results show that the PT government, although further to the left of the political spectrum, has been struggling to adjust public accounts, albeit unsuccessfully.
