Post electoral: elections in Brazil
On October 2, Brazilians went to the polls to elect their next president. With 99.99% of the votes counted, the favorites were Lula da Silva with 48.43% of the votes for the Brazil of Hope federation (Workers’ Party, Communist Party of Brazil and Green Party) followed closely by Jair Bolsonaro with 43.20%, from the Liberal Party. As none of them surpassed the threshold of votes needed to win in the first round, they will face each other again in a runoff on Sunday, October 30. On that occasion, the winner will be the one who obtains the most votes.
