Lula Returns To Power in Brazil

Brazil’s former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva — better known as Lula in South America’s largest country — defeated President Jair Bolsonaro in Sunday’s presidential election run-off.

The margin of victory was wafer thin — just 1.6 per cent votes. Lula had 50.8 per cent of the votes compared with Bolsonaro’s 49.2 per cent.

Lula’s supporters were thrilled nevertheless to see Bolsonaro — a Latin American version of Donald Trump — defeated.
