Brazil socialist President reelected.
Posted by QB on May 2, 2006
This is the only positive news in last couple of days that Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s resounding electoral victory with over 60 percent of the vote places Brazilian politics on a new footing. A major reason for Lula’s resounding victory is due to the support of the poor and dispossesed who make up the majority of Brazil’s population. Even in the first round of the elections on October 8 when Lula fell short of an absolute majority, garnering 48 percent of the vote versus his leading opponent’s 41 percent, the poor, particularly in the country’s impoverished northeast, provided the decisive margin of support.
This is good news because Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva can bring the changes to improve the lives of Brazilians.
