2018-10-08 05:15
Brazil's presidential election will be decided in a run-off between right-winger Jair Bolsonaro and leftist Fernando Haddad, the president of the country's top electoral court said on Sunday (October 07). Bolsonaro obtained 46.7 percent of the votes in Sunday's first-round vote, and Haddad got 28.37 percent. The run-off between the two top vote-getters is required when no candidate wins a majority. The vote will be held on Oct. 28. Credit: Reuters
