Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election

With almost all of the votes counted, Mr Bolsonaro has 55% of the votes against 45% for Fernando Haddad from the left-wing Workers Party.

Mr Bolsonaro campaigned on a promise to eradicate corruption and to drive down Brazil's high crime levels.

The election campaign has been deeply divisive. Each camp argued that victory for the other could destroy Brazil.

The result represents a marked right-wing swing in the country which was under military rule from 1964 to 1985.

Pointing to the number of former members of the military he surrounds himself with, his opponents argue that Mr Bolsonaro poses a risk to Brazil's democracy.

Mr Bolsonaro also alienated many Brazilians with his homophobic, racist and misogynistic remarks.

But many of his supporters view him as a "saviour" who will make Brazil safer and who will stand for traditional values such as opposing the legalisation of abortion.

Some celebrated in the street outside Mr Bolsonaro's home in Rio de Janeiro, waving Brazilian flags and letting of fireworks.


One of Mr Bolsonaro's flagship campaign issues has been to increase security for Brazilian citizens. He has portrayed himself as a hardliner who will restore safety to Brazil's streets.

He has indicated that his government will aim to relax laws restricting the ownership and carrying of guns.

His economic policy plans include proposals to reduce government "waste" and promises to reduce state intervention in the economy.

He has suggested that Brazil could pull out of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, arguing that its requirements compromise Brazil's sovereignty over the Amazon region

Mr Bolsonaro has also said that he will "cleanse" Brazil of corrupt politicians, a campaign promise which has been very popular with Brazilians who say they are tired of the corruption which has seen dozens of high-ranking politicians from the established parties jailed.

The Workers' Party candidate, Fernando Haddad, had tried to distance himself from the corruption scandals which had rocked his party but for many voters that was not enough.

Mr Bolsonaro will be sworn in on 1 January 2019 and replace outgoing President Michel Temer, who is leaving office with a record low approval rating of 2%.

Re: Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election

I'm not exactly left wing by today standards but this is really awful. I blame in on the worker's party also.

some of our future president quotes with English subtitles.

It is all really bad.

Trump may be awful but the economy and the institutions on the United States are really strong so he can't do that much damage. The same cannot be said of Brazil.

Given the high amount of gays mostly Europeans in this forum I think you guys will be quite perplexed.

Scary indeed, why do people vote for despicable people? And not only in Brazil...
Sad days we live in.

Re: Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election

He may be right wing or even 90s moderate like Trump but are people still taking the label 'Far right' seriously after the media have overused and stretched that term into meaninglessness the past few years?

I think far-right is appropriate for someone who has sympathies for the military dictatorship that Brazil not too long ago emerged from. If Merkel is center-right than clearly Bolsonaro is not in the same category.

Re: Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election

Do people really believe such a guy would fight corruption?

Populists and extremists are usually among the most corrupt, as soon as they discover the advantages of government power.

Re: Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election

I blame the left for making south America move to the right

Just as i blame merkal for the EU split and refugees mess
