Now the time has come. Now they hit each other on TV. Bolsonaro calls Lula a thief. Lula calls Bolsonaro the destroyer of Brazil. Live on TV. In the first election debate. At an event in which other presidential candidates also took part, but this election campaign is no longer about others.
Jair Bolsonaro versus Lula da Silva. That's what it's all about. The current president, 67 years old, against the ex-president, 76 years old. The right against the left. The former military man who once landed in jail for involvement in riots - against the former union leader who once landed in jail on corruption charges.
