Lula or Bolsonaro?

The polls opened today in Brazil for the most crucial general elections in the last 30 years, with former left-wing president Luis Inácio Lula da Silva as the favorite to unseat his rival, far-right president Jair Bolsonaro.

The opening hours were at 8 a.m. and they should close at 5 p.m., when the Electoral Justice will begin the count, which is expected to show a consolidated trend about two hours later. According to polls, Lula could win in the first round.

For his part, the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, affirmed, hours before the start of the election, that he will obtain re-election with 60% of the votes, contrary to all the polls that favor his opponent.
