Elections in Brazil: Round 2

With neither of Brazil’s leading presidential candidates having achieved the 50%+1 threshold for a first-round victory, a run-off election between Jair Bolsonaro and Luis Inácio Lula da Silva was scheduled to place on 30 October. The two had continued bitterly fought campaigns in the weeks following the first round, including further rallies and debates in which the heightened polarisation felt across Brazilian politics often took centre stage.

In this webinar, Canning House invited an expert panel to analyse the first-round results and consider what significance this extended presidential race held in Brazil’s domestic politics, the country’s macroeconomic environment, and current and future political risk.
