Brazil: Tebet, 3rd in the first round of the presidential election, supports Lula

"I will vote for Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva because I recognize in him a commitment to democracy and the Constitution that I do not recognize in the president" Bolsonaro, said Ms. Tebet, 52, during a speech to the press in a hotel in Sao Paulo.

"I will not vote blank, to be neutral would be to sin by omission", added this fervent Catholic, while her party, the MDB, had not given instructions, preferring to let its members "follow their conscience".

The senator, who weighs nearly five million votes, however criticized the former left-wing president (2003-2010) for having "called for a useful vote without presenting concrete proposals in the face of the real problems of Brazil".

But she especially fired red balls on the balance sheet of Jair Bolsonaro.

"For the past four years, Brazil has been abandoned to hatred and discord. Denial has delayed the purchase of vaccines (anticovid), weapons have taken the place of books," said this trained lawyer.

Last year, she had played a central role in the Senate Commission of Inquiry which delivered a damning report on the government's handling of the pandemic.

Lula recorded another strong support on Wednesday: that of his predecessor in the presidency Fernando Henrique Cardoso (center right, 1995-2002).

"FHC" announced on Twitter that he was going to vote for his opponent in the 1994 and 1998 presidential elections, which he believes embodies "the fight for democracy and social inclusion".

"Thank you for your vote and your trust. Brazil needs dialogue and peace," Lula replied on the same social network.

A week before the first round, "FHC" had called for a vote "for democracy", but had not mentioned the name of the former left-wing president.

Lula obtained 48.4% of the vote on Sunday, ahead of Bolsonaro, whose score was better than expected, with 43.2%.

The far-right president garnered significant support on Tuesday, including that of former anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro, his former justice minister, who had nevertheless resigned with a bang in 2020.

Jair Bolsonaro was also supported by the governors of the three most populous states in the country: Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro (southeast), to which those of Parana (south) and the Federal District of Brasilia were added on Wednesday. (Midwest).
