President-elect Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva, 76, reportedly won in a tight race last week.
But the results are being contested by millions of people who suspect the election wasn’t fair.
da Silva received just over 60 million votes, the most in the country’s history. However, his victory was narrow; he reportedly won 50.90% of the vote compared to Bolsonaro’s 49.10%.
