Date: 22 Sep 2022 Time: 11:27:31
Presidential candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is leading incumbent Jair Bolsonaro by ten points in the latest polls for Brazil’s October 2 presidential election.
According to The Genial/Quest poll, Lula will receive 44% of the vote, compared to the 34% the right-wing Bolsonaro will register in the first round of the election. In the second round on October 30, the former president and Workers’ Party candidate will reach 50% of the vote, compared to Bolsonaro’s 40%, similar polls show.
Lula’s advantage prompted Bolsonaro circles to point to vulnerabilities in the voting system.
Both policies focus on a bitter debate over how to manage South America’s leading economy in an increasingly polarized environment. Bolsonaro’s entourage is considering using a strategy similar to that of Donald Trump’s supporters in the US due to the prospect of an imminent victory for the left-wing candidate.
In recent days, there have been many comments about the insecurity of the voting system, as well as the possible involvement of the military establishment in the election through a recount, which is unlikely in a democracy.
Brazil, one of the world’s most promising democracies, has emerged from the Covid-19 crisis with rising poverty and hunger. According to a report published in June by Red Pension, about 33.1 million Brazilians are hungry, 73% more than in 2020.
