Join us for this webinar analysing the first-round results, and considering what may have changed in the race for the presidency.

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 will take place on 30 October. The two have 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 has often taken centre stage.

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