Written by Olarotimi Oshin on October 3, 2022
Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has won the first round of Brazil’s presidential election and will face incumbent Jair Bolsonaro in a run-off vote.
According to the electoral office in Brazil, left-wing former president Lula came in at forty-seven point nine-seven percent, while right-wing Bolsonaro received forty-three point six-zero percent.
Since no candidate won more than 50 per cent of the vote, Lula and Bolsonaro as the two strongest contenders will go to a runoff on October 30.
If Lula wins the second round, he will be Brazil’s first democratic president to enter a third term. He was previously president from 2003-2010.
