Brazil, Latin America’s largest and most populous country, will hold presidential elections on October 2

A record number of voters will go to Brazil’s general election on Oct. 2, in what some observers see as a “critical test” of the country’s political system.

More than 150 million people will vote for governors and local lawmakers, as well as congressmen and senators, but the focus will undoubtedly be on the presidential race between incumbent Jabolsonaro and former President Lula.

Against a backdrop of polarized opinion, the outcome of the presidential race – if none of the 11 candidates get more than 50% of the vote, the two with the most votes go to the second round of the runoff, after which the winner will emerge – will be in Latin Reverberations beyond the borders of the largest and most populous nation in the Americas.

The world is already watching the Brazilian election. Perhaps the most vocal is the United States – which called on Bolsonaro’s government to “respect the democratic process” after the current Brazilian president publicly questioned the country’s electronic voting system.
