Pre electoral: elections in Brazil
This Sunday, October 2, Brazilians go to the polls to elect the president and vice-president of the Republic, the entire Chamber of Deputies (513), and one third of the Senate (27). Although 11 candidates are vying for the presidency, current president Jair Bolsonaro (Partido Liberal) and former president Lula da Silva (Partido dos Trabalhadores) dominate the polls, with Lula in the lead. That Lula will get the highest number of votes seems certain, but what is less guaranteed is that he will get 50% or above. If he does not, a runoff will be held on October 30.
