Lula da Silva wins Brazilian presidential election
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva won the presidential election. Such data are provided by the CEC of the country based on the results of processing 99.01% of the protocols.
Da Silva won 50.84% of the vote, while his only rival, incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro, 49.1% of the vote.
The gap between da Silva and Bolsonaro is such that the incumbent president will not be able to win it back when processing the remaining protocols.
The CEC has already announced da Silva as the elected president of Brazil.
Recall that in the first round of elections, the leader of the Workers’ Party, Lula da Silva, won 47.95 percent of the vote – he was supported by over 55 million Brazilian citizens. Bolsonaro has 43.62 percent of the vote, favored by more than 50 million Brazilians.
In general, polls conducted by various organizations favored da Silva, who was predicted to win by a narrow margin.
At the same time, some researchers suggested that Bolsonaro could also win.
