Lula thinks about re-election to prevent the “troglodytes” from coming to power

The Brazilian president said he will not allow his country to be "condemned by a denier" again.

The president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, said this Tuesday during a radio interview that he will seek re-election if his candidacy prevents the country from being governed by “troglodytes” again.

In a clear reference to the Government of Jair Bolsonaro (2019-2022), Lula pointed out that he will not allow the country to be “condemned by a denier” again.

“If it were necessary to be a candidate to prevent the troglodytes who governed this country from governing again, (…) I could be a candidate,” the president said during an interview with the Globo group's CBN station.

Lula, however, stressed that a new candidacy to assume the head of State is not among his priority objectives, due to age, since he would be campaigning at 80 years old and he has to think about his state of health by then.

“We must be responsible with Brazil, but I am not going to allow Brazil to be governed by a fascist again,” he insisted.

Lula has always positioned himself firmly against the management of Bolsonaro, a nostalgic for the military dictatorship (1964-1985), defender of the exploitation of the natural resources of the Amazon, and one of the few líderThey are deniers of the covid-19 pandemic, which left some 700.000 dead in Brazil.

El líder progressive, now 78 years old, assumed his third term in January 2023 after defeating Bolsonaro, one of the leaders of the extreme right in Latin America, in the elections, and after having governed the country for two consecutive periods, between 2003 and 2010.
