Sao Paulo. In the presidential election held in Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the left-wing Workers’ Party defeated incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro. The election authority gave this information on Sunday. According to the authority, Lula da Silva got 50.8 percent and Bolsonaro 49.2 percent, according to the 98.8 percent of the total votes cast in the general election. Let us tell you that Lula da Silva 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.

Lula, 76, focused on the campaign to oust Bolsonaro and recounted his past achievements throughout his campaign. His campaign promised a new tax regime that would allow for higher public spending. Along with this, he resolved to end hunger from Brazil, which had emerged as a major challenge during the Bolsonaro government.

Lula was surrounded by controversies
Let us tell you that Lula is also not spared from controversies. He was indicted in 2017 of corruption and money laundering on charges stemming from an extensive “Operation Car Wash” investigation into state-run oil company Petrobras. But after a sentence of less than two years, a Supreme Court judge struck down Lula’s sentence in March 2021, paving the way for her to run for president for a sixth time.
