Poll: Lula maintains leadership for elections in Brazil
Bolsonaro, who is running for re-election nominated by the Liberal Party (PL), insulted Lula da Silva, favorite to win next Sunday’s elections, and called him a liar and a traitor.
The former president (2003-2010), who seeks to return to the government nominated by a coalition led by the Workers’ Party (PT), replied that it is insane for a president to act in this way, so he asked him to lie less.
