Presidential Elections- Run-off: Post-election report

This Sunday, October 30, Brazilians picked Luiz Inácio ‘Lula’ da Silva as their next president in what was the closest fought second-round election in years, with only 1.80% separating the country’s two-time head of state from incumbent Jair Bolsonaro. Even if an orderly transition now ensues, Lula faces the daunting task of presiding over a deeply split country and with the shadow of the ex-military boss looming large for years to come. Success will hinge on managing and mollifying these divisions and garnering a broad enough base of political support to push through his agenda on tackling hunger and promoting sustainable growth.
