Brazilian Election

#Rousseff has not been a leader on a global scale; since becoming office, she has prioritised domestic problems in #Brazil over international ones. More leaders like Lula are needed in Brazil if the country is to continue raising its stature internationally. On October 5, millions of Brazilians participated in the election to choose the country’s new president. Dilma Rousseff, the incumbent and head of the Workers’ Party, Aecio Neves, the head of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party, and Marina Silva, a former environment minister, were the three able contenders.

According to a survey conducted by Datafolha on September 17 and 18, 2014, Silva had 46 percent more support from voters than Rousseff did. Rousseff appeared to gain ground on Silva after a week of intensive campaigning. Despite the fact that Brazil experienced a recession right before the election, some claimed that Rousseff was doing an exceptional job of maintaining her favour among voters at above 40%. Rousseff continues to be the Brazilian electorate’s preferred choice as a result of the Workers’ Party’s success in reducing poverty and generating jobs over the previous 12 years. Rousseff won the election on October 5 with 41.6 percent of the vote, but she was unable to win a majority to prevent a run-off. As no candidate received more than 50% of the vote in the first round, she will compete against Aecio Neves of the Social Democratic Party, which is pro-business, on October 26. Rousseff may prevail against in the second round, according to a recent poll. Neves by 48 percent to 42 percent. Yet, even if Rousseff remains the favorite, Neves could become the next president if he receives Silva’s support.

Neves, a former governor and senator, made a late run and finished second, which is noteworthy. Neves was not given a chance to either win the election or advance to the second round as one of the two candidates. He performed well in debates on television, despite the fact that his team was present on every street corner. The contest was anticipated to be between Silva and Rousseff. Many of Silva’s supporters even thought that fate was working in her favour because, first, Silva failed to register her party and joined the Brazilian Socialist Party (BSP), then Eduardo Campos, one of the BSP’s candidates and its leader, was killed in a plane crash, and finally, after all of these events, Silva won the election.

“Victory in this first round is thanks to the yearning for change in the majority of the Brazilian people,” Neves remarked following the vote. On October 26, we will learn whether or not there is a strong enough desire for change. Let’s now examine the background of relations between Turkey and Brazil as well as any prospective effects of the next presidential election.
