In the first round of voting held last month, Lula got 48.4 percent, while Bolsonaro got 43.23 percent of the vote.
Jair Bolsonaro kept quiet
Jair Bolsonaro has become completely silent after these results. He hasn’t responded yet. Corona’s mismanagement is believed to be the biggest reason for their defeat. Despite Brazil having the highest number of deaths in the world from Corona, there was not much emphasis on the Kovid protocol in Brazil. He could not get a second term due to public anger with Bolsonaro. The new President Lula da Silva defeated him by a very small margin of votes.
Lula could not contest elections in the year 2018
Lula da Silva was convicted in 2018 for corruption. Because of this he could not contest the election. In the year 2019, his sentence was canceled on the ground that he was wrongly prosecuted. He contested for the President’s post for the sixth time in his political career. He first contested elections in 1989, but this time Lula had made a commitment to bring about a peaceful revolution in the country.
There will be 3 big challenges before the new government
Lula’s government will face three major challenges. The first environmental balance 60 percent of the Amazon forest is in Brazil. They play an important role in maintaining the balance of the world’s climate. Also help in fighting global warming, but due to forest fires, illegal quarrying and felling of trees, Brazil had to face the worst drought in 90 years.
