Before Sunday’s (30 October) runoff in Brazil, the Liberal Party candidate, current President Jair Bolsonaro and his leftist rival Labor candidate Luis Inacio Lula Da Silva, repeatedly accused each other of “liars” in the television program they were facing.
Current President Jair Bolsonaro and his rival, former President and Labor candidate Luis Inacio Lula Da Silva, who will compete in the second round of the presidential election in Brazil tomorrow, shared their final Trump card in the TV show they are facing.
The debate, which was broadcast live on TV and took place about 48 hours before the opening of the polling boxes, observed that both candidates were nervous, while former President Lula was more prepared.
They’ve been hard on each other on different things
In a debate between the two candidates trying to corner each other, Bolsonaro claimed that Lula lied to the poor people in the country to get the vote, and said that if he was re-elected, he would raise the minimum wage. Bolsonaro said that Lula was corrupt during the presidency, so he was put in jail afterwards.
Lula said he was acquitted in the case against him and got out of prison. Lula criticized Bolsonaro’s way of fighting the virus outbreak in the chorus, where nearly 700 Brazilians died, while focusing on bribery scandals that damaged the reputation of the Bolsonaro Lula’s Labor Party.
