Elections in Brazil may reflect on political relations, the economy, trade, ideological debate and the vote of voters who live abroad

The Brazilian presidential election should impact other Latin American countries, in the view of analysts, politicians and citizens heard by BBC News Brazil, and be reflected in political relations, the economy, trade, ideological debate and voter votes in addition to Brazilian borders.

The current perception of the effect of the Brazilian election occurs because former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) and President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), who lead polls of voting intentions, are known to voters in neighboring countries who follow the race to the Planalto Palace.

Lula was already renowned for having governed Brazil for two terms and, even before he was president, among unionists and academics for his life trajectory. Bolsonaro became known mainly after his election in 2018.

“Brazil has a greater weight than Mexico and Argentina and not only in Latin America. And the electoral result can radiate to the entire region”, says political scientist Juan Lucca, a professor at the National University of Rosario.
