Brazil President Election: Signs of Bolsonaro’s stay in Brazil, people continue to lean towards the right wing.
In Brazil, surprisingly Jair Bolsonaro is on his way to becoming the President again. The counting of votes for the presidential election indicates that the country’s voters are inclined towards the right wing.
Voters did not like the leftist candidate for former President Luis Inácio Lula da Silva. He has got fewer votes than Bolsonaro.
Bolsonaro got 48.4 percent of the vote.
While Bolsonaro got 48.4 percent of the votes in the vote count, Lula da Silva got 43.2 percent of the vote. Nine other candidates got very few votes.
Contrary to apprehensions, the elections were held in a calm, secure and harmonious atmosphere. The Chief Justice of the country congratulated the citizens of the country for this.
Lula is considered by some voters to be unfit for the presidency because of his involvement in the Lava Jato corruption scandal.
Lula has spent nearly two years in prison on corruption charges. However, after this, the Supreme Court overturned his sentence.
Brazil President Election: Bolsonaro’s defeat seemed certain.
Bolsonaro has been under constant criticism due to the forest fires, the fight against corruption, and his carelessness in dealing with the Covid epidemic.
That is why it was believed that Bolsonaro’s defeat in the election was certain.
But the counting of votes proved all the speculations wrong. Bolsonaro has once again emerged as the country’s most popular leader.
It is believed that he will easily form the government with the alliance parties held before the election.
