Former president of Brazil, Luiz da Silva beat far-right incumbent Jair Bolsonaro in the presidential election.

After a divisive campaign, Lula won 50.9% of the votes, which
was enough to beat Bolsonaro, whose supporters had been confident of victory.

It is a stunning comeback for a politician who could not run in the last presidential election in 2018 because he was in jail and banned from standing for office.

He had been found guilty of receiving a bribe from a Brazilian construction firm in return for contracts with Brazil’s state oil company.
