Spanish term or phrase:acceso al gobierno
Brasil se expande aprovechando los huecos que van dejando los Estados Unidos y las empresas multinacionales del Norte, a caballo de la deslegitimación del Consenso de Washington que está permitiendo el *acceso al gobierno* de varios países de fuerzas progresistas y de izquierda.
Marian, I am unsure what "access to the government" would actually mean in this context, hence my initial confusion. Can you explain what that might mean in practical terms? Chris, "rise to power" would certainly make sense in this context, but I'm failing to see how the author's words could fairly be translated that way...any comments?
