The election for president of Brazil is still open. In a first meeting held on October 2, the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, a former conservative military officer, faced an old acquaintance of the Brazilians, their former president Lula Da Silva, who already led them under leftist flags between 2003 and the 2010.
This week’s analysis will focus on reviewing the scenario in which the second electoral round will take place, since in the first, Lula surpassed Bolsonaro by just five percentage points in an event that leads them to a decisive confrontation in which the economy becomes the factor that will tip the balance.
An election is won by interpreting what is at stake in an entity and knowing how to read what is the issue that must be resolved in it. A good reading will enable the candidate who offers the best solutions to win the result without neglecting the emotional factor that surrounds the entire electoral process.
The entire electoral process, in the largest country in Latin America, was loaded with disqualifying messages where the extremism of Bolsonaro and the recent past of Lula, who was imprisoned for 500 days for alleged diversion of resources, have filled the thematic network politics.
However, according to analyst Cristiano Noronha,– ¨it will be difficult to anticipate the result of this contest¨, since the first round being so closed in percentages, the future is eclipsed for now-
Such close and polarized elections have not been held for thirty-three years, in such a way that only the electorate that did not vote in the first round and some undecided, will be able to give space to that candidate who can add the votes together with the task of convincing the followers of Simone Tebet and Ciro Gomes who lost in the first round. The useful vote enters the scene.
The first survey carried out after the first electoral incursion carried out by the GLOBO media group, Lula would be reaching 51% of the intention to vote and Bolsonaro would have 43%, however, the great survey will be carried out next Sunday, October 30 where a large vote is expected given the expectation generated by the event that the world observes.
The economy, aspect of greater consideration in the spirit of the Brazilians, has been improving. Inflation has been reduced to 8.73% and the poverty level has stabilized at 29.6%.
Growth is estimated at 2.7% and more resources have been allocated to reactivate the economy and all this plays in favor of the current president of Rio de Janeiro.
From the latest debates that have taken place in these last three weeks, the undecided fringe will obtain renewed information that will allow them to lean towards either of the two options.
Meanwhile, the battle that has taken place in recent years in Latin American territory will have a new episode: the left against the neoliberal and conservative model.
We’ll meet later.
