Hello everyone. We start the direct of the elections that will be held this Sunday, October 2 in Brazil. Accredited journalists from EL PAÍS, with special support from Madrid and Mexico, will accompany you from today and throughout election day.

The largest democracy in Latin America, with more than 156.4 million people summoned to the polls, faces what will be its most polarized election. On the one hand, the president, Jair Bolsonaro, will seek re-election with a far-right speech. His rival will be former left-wing president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the protagonist of Brazil's political life for half a century. Lula goes for his redemption after spending 20 months in jail, convicted of corruption.

The Supreme Electoral Tribunal has promised results within the hour following the closing of the polling stations, scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on Sunday according to the Brasilia time zone.
