Electrical sector: Haddad x Bolsonaro

I watched TV interviews with both candidates for ,presidency in Brazil when they were asked how they would approach the electric power sector.

Both of them will keep these huge companies in the "hands of the Brazilian state". 

What strategy will they come up with respect to these giant companies (that are badly losing money for years in a row)?

Neither has in their curricula any evidence of a lean management profile associated with large public companies/institutions They have no real-life examples showing a turnaround situation they came up with or someone appointed. 

 They don't have a single story to tell about a situation where they identified major problems, mapped out cost-cutting alternatives, faced the very tough conflicts associated with downsizing, and had the courage to make it happen all the way, and finally and most importantly, achieved and maintained excellent results.

It is not about being optimistic or pessimistic but realizing that the chances of a much needed change are extremely very small.
