Lula's victory confirmed in first round of elections in Brazil

TSE confirmed the victory of the presidential candidate of the Workers’ Party after one hundred percent ballots were counted 41 hours after the official time for the end of the vote.

Lula will contest a second round of voting on October 30 against ultra-right-leaning President Jair Bolsonaro, who aspires to be re-elected by the Liberal Party and has got 43.20 percent of valid ballots.

No candidate for power secured an absolute majority of the votes in the first trial, i.e. more than half the valid votes (excluding blank and void votes), as established by Brazilian law to be elected.

The G1 portal assures that there were sections in which voters queued to vote until Sunday night, although voting in Brasilia was expected to close by 5:00 pm local time.

Due to the long lines, at 9:00 p.m. local time, some people were still exercising their authority in the capital of Duc de Caixios, Buzios, Belford Roxo and Rio de Janeiro.

Such a result of a presidential dispute with Lula and Bolsonaro in the second round was announced at 9:25 pm local time on Sunday, when 96.93 percent of the vote had been established.

At that time, PT leaders reached 47.85 percent (54.8 million) of valid votes and former military individuals 43.7 (50.1 million).

The vote for Lula reached 57,259,504, or 48.43 percent, on Tuesday, and a total of 51,72,345 (43.20) for Bolsonaro.

Also in the presidential elections, the former Labor leader came first in 3,378 cities in Brazil, with much predominance in the Northeast, while Bolsonaro won at the front in 2,192 cities, emphasizing centre-west and south regions.

Of all the municipalities of Serra, Paraiba, Piau and Sergipe, Lula was voted the most. Bolsonaro, for his part, completely conquered Rondnia, in addition to the Federal District (DF).

The court also indicated that elections for governor were completed on Sunday in 14 states and the federal district. The other 12 regional divisions would require a second turn.

The Chamber of Deputies, the Federal Senate and the Legislative Assemblies do not have a second round of disputes and have already been concluded.

For the lower house, the elected federal representatives would occupy 513 seats. Of the 50 with the most votes, 20 were nominated by the state of So Paulo, the country’s largest electoral college, accounting for 22.16 percent of the total number of voters.
