The candidate of far right arrived largely at the top of the Brazilian presidential election, followed by Fernando Haddad, but will have to deliver to the left a duel at the conclusion very dubious in a polarized country.
The Brazilian ones voted in mass for the candidate of far right, carried by the hope of a change in this country in crisis, which does not manage to dam up violence and corruption.
For many voters, the candidate of far right seemed the right man for the job, with his sedentary speech which recommends the liberalization of the carrying of weapons. He also profited from a strong feeling anti–Pt, with the power of 2003 to 2016.
The voters expressed their will of change, in a country caused to become gangrenous by the corruption scandals and the insecurity. Ex–captain of the army, Jair Bolsonaro, become an electoral phenomenon since it passed very close to death in an attack on September 6th, saw himself, like his militants, to carry it as of the first turn of the election.
The candidate of far right Jair Bolsonaro arrives at the top of the first turn with 46% of the voices, according to first partial results, and will face on October 28th the left–wing candidate, Fernando Haddad (29.03%). These first results, announced by the electoral higher Court (TSE) relate to the examination of 99% of the ballot boxes.
They were accommodated with a great disappointment by the partisans of Bolsonaro, which apparently sees disappearing its chances to be elected as of the 1st turn. Nearly 147 million voters went to the ballot boxes in this country where the vote is obligatory.
Jair Bolsonaro, become an electoral phenomenon since it passed very close to death in an attack on September 6th, saw himself, like his militants, to carry it as of the first turn of the election.
Ciro Gomes (PDT, centre left), eliminated from the race with 12,5% of the voting intentions, was paradoxically most capable to beat Bolsonaro with the 2nd turn. Mr. Gomes restricted himself to say that it would continue “to fight for the democracy and against Fascism”.
Dilma Rousseff, of the Party of workers (Pt), arrived in fourth position, with 15.06% of the voices.
