Lula had counted his past achievements in this time’s presidential election and promised the public to introduce a new tax system. He was the President of Brazil from 2003 to 2010. Lula da Silva, 77, was sentenced to prison in 2018 for corruption, which led to her being sidelined in the election that year. Due to this, the way was paved for the victory of the then candidate Bolsonaro.
