This chapter explores hypotheses that could explain the differences in the design of Brazilian independent regulatory agencies (IRAs) in the telecommunications and electricity sectors. It critically interrogates the ‘political bias’ hypothesis, which suggests that ‘political bias’ affects the implementation of IRAs in Latin America. Evidence indicates support for a revised version of the ‘political bias’ hypothesis on sectoral divergence in Brazil, suggesting that bureaucratic resistance to reform may be the cause of variations between regulatory reform in the electricity and in telecommunications sectors.
