Lula wins first round of presidential election in Brazil

Opinion polls had already seen challenger Lula with 50 percent of the votes in the first round and thus with a much larger lead over incumbent Bolsonaro. According to the polls, he was 36 percent behind Lula.

For the far-right leader, now avoiding a humiliating first-round defeat, the four weeks leading up to the runoff could be an opportunity to further mobilize his supporters.

According to experts, Bolsonaro emerges stronger from the first round of elections - also due to the election victory of numerous right-wing candidates in Congress and the Senate. "Bolsonarismo" won this first round, said Bruna Santos from the Brazil Institute at the Wilson Center in Washington. "We will experience a second round in a radically polarized environment," said the political scientist.
