Jair Bolsonaro


With 92 percent counted, far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is slated to become the next president of Brazil.

Bolsonaro obtained 55.6 percent of the vote, against PT candidate Fernando Haddad who received 44.3 percent.

Reports yet to be confirmed suggest that up to thirty percent of the voters either refused to vote, cancelled their vote or abstained.

An atmosphere of social confusion and division prevails in Brazil.

There are no reports of electoral fraud.

Bolsonaro is described as “Brazil’s Donald Trump” or “Trump of the tropics,”.

Is he not a Brazilian version of The Philippines President Duterte who has instituted a policy of extrajudicial assassinations.
