Brazil: Can the world risk another Bolsonaro term?
Sunday, 30 October
Brazil’s presidential elections go to round two today. Ahead of Latin America’s most consequential vote in decades, what should we be looking out for? Dr. Christopher Sabatini, senior fellow for Latin America at Chatham House, talks to Alex Andreou about how Bolsonaro broke Brazilian politics, Lula’s prospects and the environmental impact on the Amazon.
“The last four years can be seen as a triumph of institutions. Brazilian institutions are strong and they've survived, despite Bolsonaro.”
“Lula's campaign is all about beating Bolsonaro. That's not a long-term winning bet.”
“Bolsonaro's election strategy is Bible, beef and bullets.”
“For Brazilians, the Amazon is their crown jewel.”
