The administration of Brazil's new President Jair Bolsonaro said Thursday it is starting a purge of government contractors to get rid of those who don't share its far-right ideology.

The government "will clean the house," chief of staff Onyx Lorenzoni told a news conference after the first cabinet meeting with Bolsonaro, who took office this week.

"It's the only way to govern with our ideas, our concepts and to carry out what Brazil's society decided in its majority," he said.

The sweep will target contractors deemed sympathetic to the centrist and left-wing parties that have ruled Brazil for most of the period since the country shucked off military dictatorship in 1985.

Bolsonaro and his team routinely identify those parties -- particularly the Workers Party that governed between 2003 and 2016 -- derogatively as "Socialists" or "Communists."

Bolsonaro in October decisively beat the Workers Party candidate in elections for the presidency.
