Brazil's leading presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that if elected in the Oct. 28 runoff ballot, he would name banker Paulo Guedes as economy minister to oversee a "super ministry" combining the current finance, planning and development portfolios.

Speaking to journalists after meeting with members of his Social Liberal Party, the far-right politician said he would appoint retired army general Augusto Heleno Pereira as defence minister, and congressman Onyx Lorenzoni as chief of staff.

He also said that conservative agriculture leader Nabhan Garcia would not be the eventual head of another ministry combining the current agriculture and environment ministries.
