Brazil's presidential elections
4 | November | 2022

In a close vote and a record turnout, Lula da Silva was elected in the second round with 50.9 % of the votes. It is the first time in the history of Brazil that an incumbent President is not re-elected, in an electoral process that was probably the most polarised in Brazilian democracy. However, many supporters of the defeated candidate did not accept the results and took the streets in protests, closing roads and spreading fears that violence would take on destabilising proportions.
