Fortunately for Geisel, his brother, Orlando Geisel, was the minister of army, and his close ally, General João Baptista de Oliveira Figueiredo, was chief of Médici's military staff.
Geisel replaced several regional commanders with trusted officers and labeled his political program distensão, meaning a gradual relaxation of authoritarian rule.
He signed a general amnesty into law and turned Geisel's distensão into a gradual abertura (the opening of the political system), saying that his goal was "to make this country a democracy." The hard-liners reacted to the opening with a series of terrorist bombings.

[1] In particular, the analysis here was motivated by the question of whether the formal process of political liberalization initiated by the Ernesto Geisel government has affected or could affect the rural politics of northeast Brazil.
The tentative answer to that question is that rural unionism, combined with urbanization has made for a shift in northeast Brazil away from the patriarch-dominated politics of the past toward the patrimonial politics of industrial, southern Brazil.
Political liberalization involves the self-creation of a civil society that, for political purposes, is composed of associations (freely formed and joined by individuals with self-determined similar interests) that can and do influence the rule-making and implementation process of the state.

This economic crisis came to force especially during the economically disastrous administration of General Ernesto Geisel (1974-1978), which then forced this government to initiate a very gradual process of abertura democrática (democratic opening).
In fact, Geisel accepted such 'opening' as long as it was he who conducted the whole democratization process.
Despite this, this process of democratization was not reversed and the last military president, João Batista de Oliveira Figueiredo (1979-1985), a general chosen by President Geisel to replace him, would make the final step toward the end of military government.
