International Press Brief

Brazil's presidential elections

Brazil will vote on October 2 to elect a new president in a scenario of strong political and social polarisation in which the debate between the two main candidates has been fierce and marked by violence between supporters. Polls indicate the advantage of former president Inácio Lula da Silva, but the incumbent, Jair Bolsonaro, promises he will "go to war" to stay in the presidency with accusations of electoral manipulation. Should no candidate reach 50% of the vote, Brazil will vote on a second round.

Italy's Election

The fall of Mario Draghi's Italian government on July 20th has caused a shock wave in the country and the calling of early parliamentary elections for September 25th. The polls indicate that the far-right Fratelli d'Italia party led by Giorgia Meloni, with neo-fascist roots, is likely to win in coalition with Matteo Salvini's Lega party and Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia.

Taiwan Crisis

Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan provoked strong protests from Beijing, which in response adopted a series of retaliatory measures, such as aggressive military exercises around the island and a media campaign promoting the "One China" principle, and aggravating the tense relations between China and the United States.
