Bolsonaro, Lula headed to runoff after polarized Brazil presidential vote

Quick Summary

Nine other candidates were also competing, but their support pales compared with that for Bolsonaro and da Silva.

Carlos Melo, a political science professor at Insper University in Sao Paulo, said: “It is too soon to go too deep, but this election shows Bolsonaro’s victory in 2018 was not a hiccup.

The narrow margin between Bolsonaro, the incumbent and his predecessor-turned-challenger surprised analysts, who pointed to da Silva's commanding lead in recent polls.
