Lula Looks to Centre to Secure 2nd Round Victory

BRAZIL
  • Following the 1st round election results late Sunday/early Monday, poll front-runner Lula is already in talks with the leaders of the MDB, PDT, Uniao Brasil parties, likely in an attempt to garner favour in states in which Lula underperformed. According to reports, Lula is looking to shore up support in the Northeastern states as well as Minas Gerais.
  • Similarly, Estadao writes today that Lula is pushing to form a government with less Workers’ Party influence and more focus on center-politics and economic turnaround for Brazil. Support is also building among some of the smaller parties, with Freire of the Cidadania Party (who backed Tebet in the first round) calling for a Lula victory.
  • Meanwhile, Bolsonaro is pressing further on his evangelical base, with O Globo running that he is calling on pastors to form a task force and turnaround votes in his favour across the Northeast.
