Lula Da Silva Wins Brazil’s Presidential Runoff Vote

Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva triumphed over incumbent president Jair Bolsonaro Sunday in Brazil’s presidential runoff vote.

Da Silva had 50.9% of the ballots, with 99.9% of the votes counted. Election officials said Lula’s victory was a mathematical certainty.

“They tried to bury me alive and here I am,” President-elect Da Silva said Sunday.

The far-right Bolsonaro did not acknowledge defeat on Sunday. However, a day before the runoff vote, he said, “There is not the slightest doubt. Whoever has more votes, takes it [the election].”
