Lula da Silva Wins Narrow Victory In Brazil Elections

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has won Brazil’s presidential election. Progressive Da Silva won 50.9% of the vote with incumbent right-wing Jair Bolsonaro getting 49.1%. Bolsonaro has yet to publicly concede in what has been the closest election in Brazil since the country became a democracy in 1985, stating concerns of possible election fraud. Da Silva is promising to return the country to the prosperity Brazil enjoyed during his previous term as president from 2003-2010. Yet others point to the corruption of that period when da Silva served 580 days in prison for corruption and money laundering until his conviction was overturned by Brazil’s top court which enabled him to run for president again.  Da Silva is set to be inaugurated January 1, 2023.
